RIPPER STREET SERIES III LAUNCH TRAILER COURTESY OF AMAZON PRIME INSTANT VIDEO:
Ripper Street is a BBC TV series set in Whitechapel in London’s East End in 1889, six months after the infamous Jack the Ripper murders. The series stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, and Adam Rothenberg. The first episode was broadcast on 30 December 2012 during BBC One’s Christmas schedule. It began airing in the US on BBC America on 19 January 2013. Ripper Street returned for a second eight-part series on 28 October 2013.
On 4 December 2013, Digital Spy reported that series two would be the last; this was due to lower viewing figures than expected. Then, on 11 December 2013, Variety reported negotiations between Tiger Aspect, the show’s producer, and LOVEFiLM to fund future episodes, similar to Netflix’s funding of episodes of Arrested Development.
On 26 February 2014, it was confirmed that Amazon Prime Instant Video (formerly known as LOVEFiLM) will revive the show, with filming to begin in May 2014.
David Dawson appears as Fred Best in 18 episodes.
