Ripper Street

Ripper Street S3: It's Great to have it back (Guardian)

The Guardian has an article that allows us to catch up to the intervening events from Series 2 to Series 3.

It’s a hell of a series and all involved have thrown themselves into it heart and soul, clearly delighted to have a chance to revisit these characters and take them to new heights. Ripper Street never was just another crime drama about murdered women – I’m sure the title put a lot of viewers off tuning in initially – but with this third series, Warlow and co have unleashed something truly ambitious, gutsy and full of imaginative flourishes. With Amazon announcing a commission for a further two series recently, it’s going to be hanging around for a while. It’s great to have it back.

Amazon Prime Instant Video has confirmed two more seasons of Ripper Street, because of the success of series 3.

... the series was streamed more than any other TV show when season three launched last November, becoming the most watched first show of new customers joining the service.

Macfadyen said: “I'm delighted to be embarking on another dose of Ripper Street - blood and guts, pocket watches and Victorian head-gear, wonderfully dark, moving and mysterious story lines from Mr Richard Warlow. Thanks Amazon.”
