The BBC’s latest scripted original series is getting a sophomore engagement across the pond.
Ripper Street, which stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn and Adam Rothenberg as detectives working the same East London area that Jack the Ripper terrorized (at around the same time of his crimes), has been picked up for a second season that will begin airing in 2014.
It couldn’t have happened to a better show! I had thought it would remain a six episode miniseries bubble of perfection, so glad to hear it’s going to continue. Ripper Street is such a solid little performer every single week, and Matthew McFadyen is such good value for money- he’s always the best thing in every project he’s in. Its become my second most anticipated show to watch each week (sorry guys, nothing beats Justified!).
