Amazon renews Ripper Street for series four and five
Here at The Digital Fix, we are rather fond of the BBC period drama Ripper Street and were as outraged as anyone when the BBC unceremoniously cancelled it after series two. But Amazon Prime heard the cry of the fans and stepped in to resurrect the show for a third season online. While series three aired last year, it is yet to get a broadcast on the BBC, which was part of the plan when Amazon saved the show.
Now Amazon Prime has announced that series three was just the beginning, and have renewed the show for two more years. The creator of Ripper Street has plans to follow Whitechapel's H Division right through to the end of the Victorian age itself. Thanks to Amazon Prime that dream has become a reality.
More news on when Amazon Prime plan to release series four - and when BBC will air the third series - as we have it.
