Today was a big day in terms of announcements of shows joining the list of renewed shows of 2013 and not one getting added to the list of cancelled shows of 2013.
In this case, BBC America renewed Ripper Street for a second season that will consist of eight more episodes set to air in 2014.
BBC AMERICA’s SVP of Programming, Richard De Croce said: “Ripper Street on BBC AMERICA has just begun, with an additional six more episodes featuring great guest stars and powerful performances ahead this season. We’re looking forward to exploring more of Victorian London in season 2.”
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.”
Ripper Street got renewed even though only two episodes have aired so far, showing the faith that the cabler has in its newest bet and first original.
