‘Ripper Street’ headed for second season

BBC America will continue airing period drama

BBC America series “Ripper Street” is headed for a second season on its Stateside home, as well as in the U.K..

BBC1 announced early Tuesday that it had ordered a second season in the U.K. of the period drama, which is co-produced by BBC America, BBC1, Tiger Aspect Prods. and Lookout Point. Hours later, BBC America confirmed its own renewal.

On BBC America, the show drew 400,000 viewers Saturday for its second episode, following a Jan. 19 premiere that drew 552,000.

Matthew Macfayden, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and MyAnna Buring star in “Ripper,” which will air eight episodes in its first season. Richard Warlow created the co-production.

“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,” Warlow said.

“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.”

Warlow exec produces with Will Gould, Simon Vaughn and Polly Hill.
