This is excellent news, for once people power prevailed and the BBC listened.

More info on the next series via BBC Ents news

 

Victorian crime drama Ripper Street is to return to screens via Amazon's video on demand service.

The BBC cancelled the show in December due to poor ratings, but Amazon has now commissioned a third season for its Prime Instant Video service - formerly known as Lovefilm Instant.

The show will premiere on Amazon and screen on the BBC a few months later.

Amazon has also acquired the UK subscription streaming rights of the first two series of the show.

The BBC will continue to make a contribution to production costs of the new season, while other broadcast partners - including BBC America and the Irish Film Board - will remain on board as part of the new arrangement.

Filming on the new series - which will continue to be produced by Tiger Aspect and Lookout Point - will begin in May.

A date for its premiere on Amazon Prime has yet to be determined.

The programme's makers said the third series would go ahead as originally planned with eight episodes, the same budget and "slightly more bells and whistles" than the previous two series.

The existing principal cast - including Matthew Macfayden and Jerome Flynn - will return to the show's purpose-built set in Dublin, with some filming in the UK for the first time.

Macfayden, who plays Det Insp Edmund Reid in the drama, said he was "delighted" Ripper Street had been saved.

"We all thought that it had legs," he said. "We didn't feel like it was petering out."

The actor joked he was looking forward to wearing his bowler hat again - the defining feature of his character.

Executive producer Will Gould said the show's cancellation "shocked" him and it felt like "unfinished work".

"We had more to do, It feels right to be going back. There are stories left to tell," he added.

'Exceptional opportunity'

Series creator and writer Richard Warlow said the story would pick up four years after the drama's last outing in December, adding he would continue to work with creatives at the BBC on the project.

He said there was scope for more series of the drama, set in the sharp-edged streets of 19th Century east London.

"It feels that the potential of what I can do is broader than it was," added the writer, in reference to the new deal with Amazon.

Ben Stephenson, the BBC's controller of drama commissioning, said: "This is an exceptional opportunity to bring back Ripper Street for a third series by working with the right partners.

 

"This deal gives fans another series of the show they love at excellent value to the licence fee payer."

Similar deals of its kind are not expected to follow.

However Amazon's Tim Leslie said if audiences loved a cancelled show and wanted to bring it back, they would consider it.

The first series of Ripper Street, set in Whitechapel following the notorious killings of Jack the Ripper, attracted nearly eight million viewers when it launched in 2012.

However the second series averaged 4.8 million viewers across the eight episodes, struggling to compete against ITV's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! which attracted a series average of 11.1 million viewers.

The cancellation triggered a social media campaign to have the drama reinstated.

Responding to the show's reprieve, the Save Ripper Street team tweeted: "We #SaveRipperStreet fans may have been little more than a flea in the ear of BBC One in the greater scheme of things. But what a flea!"

Actress MyAnna Buring, who plays the role of Long Susan, said fan reaction was "incredibly moving" in response to the BBC's decision not to recommission the show.

"I don't think without that kind of response everyone would have been inspired to create a deal like this," she added.

More on series 3 from Richard Warlow, via The Radio Times:



There's no release date yet, but you dedicated fans probably won't have to wait long. In terms of writing the third series, "everything went on ice in mid-November and was taken off ice about a month ago." "We now have nine weeks left to make the show," Warlow told us, adding that filming for the series will "wrap in August."

- You can say goodbye to the 1880s – the third series of Ripper Street is jumping forwards into a new decade. "We are moving forwards four years to 1894," revealed Warlow. In case you're interested, that was the year Blackpool tower was opened, King Edward VIII was born and Coca Cola was first sold in bottles...

- Unsurprisingly, these events won't feature heavily in Ripper Street's third series. Instead we will be dealing with the aftermath of the dramatic series two finale. "We are going to see the way the lives of our central characters have been univocally changed by the events of the end of the second series," Warlow told RadioTimes.com.

- Talking of those central characters, Long Susan is going to have more of a starring role in series three. "From the very beginning I’ve wanted to take [MyAnna Buring's character] on a very long journey," Warlow told us. "She’s going to come right to the forefront of things this time round... We had this thought at the beginning of the development process. We talked about [Long Susan] and how she should be like the unofficial major of Ripper Street... We wanted to evolve and that’s now what we get to do, so that’s terrific."

- There will be new challenges facing the Ripper Street gang, too. "We are going to get involved with the railways this time around," said Warlow. And Jack is back as the show returns to the its original mystery: "In a non-kind of procedural way we are going to delve into the further, latter years of the Ripper myth."

- One storyline will revolve around the Macnaghten Memorandum, a document written by Chief Constable Melville Macnaghten in February 1984 which outlined the theory that Jack the Ripper only had five victims and also named three possible suspects. "Macnaghten put together an internal memo on who he felt the prime suspects were," said Warlow. "It’s very interesting to me that floating around our coppers was this serious projection of the various different suspects – I’m interested to see what kind of affect that will have on them."

- The move to Amazon Prime Instant Video might just see the show trying out new things. "There will be opportunities for us to do things that perhaps we might have shied away from, if it were just for a BBC 9 o’clock audience," Warlow told us.

- But fans needn't worry that the show they know and love will change beyond recognition. "Ripper Street has a very particular style and we won’t be making any compromises as far as that’s concerned going forwards," assured Warlow.

- While series three might be at the forefront of everyone's minds at the moment, that might not be all we can look forward to when it comes to Ripper Street. "We’d love to make a fourth series," Warlow told us. "Obviously there’s no commitment but [Amazon] are very enthusiastic about the future life of the show. They wouldn’t be going to all this trouble just for one series..."

If they are going to jump forward in time there might be no Albert Flight no 

However, I enjoyed Ripper Street, the first season was great and of course when Damien popped in the picture it was awesome (more than awesome, it was more interesting and exiting). But anyway, great show, gonna watch it anyway and I'm glad it's coming back. Still big shame if Albert Flight won't be in ithmm

What if they could keep him in the jail for 4 years and then free him and give him his old job back? He kind of confessed lots of stuff in the end. But it shouldn't be his end cause he is good guy! cry There were so many possibilities for that character!

Let's hope there will be more info soon about Damien.

I really hope they do write Flight into the third series, the final episode left his entire future hanging in the balance and i want to see the outcome of that. There are myriad ways that could be done... your fantastc example just one of them Jozie.

There is mention of some of the filming for series 3 taking place in England as well as Ireland, but considering the Irish investments that have been made into the show, the very least they can do is pay them back a little by bringing back one of Ireland's biggest talents! Alongside charlene McKenna (Rose) of course.

Well Charlene has to be in it, she's one of the most important character in that show! (There is no Ripper street without Rose, her love story is still open too). But I guess we have to trust writers on this, they gonna do their best I'm sure, not to disappoint us fans. They might not get all they want in that show too, if people have other projects on. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Damiens return in Ripper street:)

Well I'm glad it is getting another chance but I'm saddened by the fact that it looks like there will be no Albert Flight.

why do you say that Jane? there is no indication yet either way if Damien will be in it or not, it could go either way. Both Shine and Flight were inextricable entwined with the cliffhanger at the end of series 2 - and H-Division's hands were tied in terms of publicly making it known about Flight.... so they may want to keep him close! Or Flight may be involved in Ripper Street in a different capacity....

If the producers want to keep Damien in the show ( and they would be wise to do so, i think we showed them during series 2 that the Molonians are a dedicated and active fanbase ) then the writers have lots of options that are quite believable to bring to life for Flight's future!

I notice that you can sign on to Amazon Prime Instant with a 30-day free trial. Is it possible that Ripper Street series three might be shown within the 30 days? If so I will sign up for the free trial and then cancel it. I already have Netflix so don't really want two!

Later I can watch it on BBC.

I'm in the same position Pearl. But, I will do with Amazon for Ripper Street the same thing I do with HBO for Game of Thrones. I order it right before the show starts & cancel it the day after the finale. ;)

It just seems odd that there has been no mention of him and who knows what they'll do if they're jumping ahead.  I hope he is in it of course.  

Either way, I'm glad the show is getting another chance.  

I find Amazon Prime to be worth the $75.00/year I pay for it, Pearl (I don't know how much it is in the UK).  I order a lot from Amazon.  Free next day shipping is fantastic (it's really two-day shipping but more often than not I get my delivery the next day) and you get discounts on things and a good deal of free streaming.  We have Netflix too.  If you don't order much from Amazon though I guess it wouldn't be worth it.

Here is a video of the Ripper Street press conference where series 3 was announced!

It doesn't mean anything of course, but they used Damien / Flight footage.

This gives me hope!

When s2 finished it seemed to me that there was absolutely a place for Flight in s3.  Considering how s2 ended I can't see Shine not coming back, but the four year gap makes me perplexed!  It does seem an odd choice of clip to show at the press conference.......no Jackson?!

Unfortunately - if last year is anything to go by - it could be a very long time before we find out!

This Cultbox feature with quotes from Ripper Street writer Toby Finlay doesn't give us any  clues on whether Flight will be in series 3 or not, but it is intriguing:

“The main cast are all coming back. If you saw the end of the second series, you’ll know that pretty much every major character was in some way devastated by the events which came to culmination. All I’ll say is that the third series begins some four years after that. ”

The writer added: “[Creator Richard Warlow] and I began outlining the series back in October 2013, before we were axed. And we were very keen to push things ever forward, to embrace the serial elements of the narrative and the fact that these characters have endured too much to just reset themselves at the start of every episode or series.”

We still have no news to share on whether Flight is returning for Ripper Street 3, will let everyone know when we do!

In the meantime, more from writer Toby Finlay via Cultbox tv:

"Speaking exclusively to CultBox, Finlay commented: “As far as I know the intention is very much to have Ripper Street live on and flourish for a fourth and even fifth series, so long as people still want to watch it.”"

So there will only be two weeks of filming in London, the rest in Dublin. Casting and contracts are also mentioned in this article from the irish Herald, fingers crossed Charlene Mckenna is not the Irish talent in negotiations!
