Ripper Street: Second Series Gets Official Confirmation

It's official! Ripper Street has been commissioned for a second series, with 8 one hour episodes which should air in 2014.

Creator and writer Richard Warlow says: “I am enormously grateful to have been given the opportunity to return to ‘H’ Division once more and will be working tirelessly to ensure that those who have joined us each week will find ever more compelling crime-fighting thrills down on Ripper Street the second time around. The series will move forward into the 1890s; the death rattle of a century coming to a close, the labor pains of a modern world on the rise. It is this sense of climax and calamity that, week by week, our heroes will confront with conviction and heroism.

Also, Ripper Street has been BBC America's second most successful show, according to BBC.

Congratulations to all of those involved in Ripper Street.
