Ripper Street Will Get Fourth And Fifth Series On Amazon Prime Instant Video
Ripper Street will return to Amazon Prime Instant Video for a fourth and fifth series. Launch dates will be announced later this year.
The revival of the BBC’s Ripper Street on Amazon Prime Instant Video has been a unquestioned success. When the third series was released on the platform in November, after cancellation on the BBC less than a year before, it became the most-watched show on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the UK at the time.
Ripper Street stars Matthew Macfayden, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and MyAnna Buring. It is set in the Victorian period following the reign of the notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper in London’s East End.
Speaking of the news, Macfayden 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.”
