Ripper Street Set to Return for Third Season
After being axed last year due to a decline in viewers, Ripper Street is set to return for a third season. Filming for the new series will begin in May, and it will debut on Amazon Prime Instant Video before airing a few months later on BBC One. Amazon Prime has also picked up the exclusive UK streaming rights to Ripper Street’s first two series.
“This is an exceptional opportunity to bring back Ripper Street for a third series by working with the right partners,” said the BBC’s controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson.
