Copper: Cancelled, No Third Season for BBC America Series

Copper canceled by BBC AmericaIt’s the end of the road for Copper on BBC America. The cable channel has announced that the show has been cancelled after two seasons. The cancellation comes following the show’s modest ratings.

In a statement, BBC America GM Perry Simon said, “The opportunity to work with Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson, Will Rokos, Thomas Kelly and the extraordinary cast and crew on this journey is one that we are extremely proud of.”

He continued, “Their vision to retell the immigrant experience through the melting pot of New York City was an original and fresh idea that melded well with the essence of BBC America’s programming. After 23 episodes, with Lincoln dead and the nation starting to heal, it seems a fitting moment to conclude this American story.”

The de facto series finale will air this Sunday. It’s called “The Place I Called My Home.”

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear there won’t be a third season of Copper? How would you have ended the series?

I am devistated to find out that there Will
Not be a third season! This show had it all
Right down to the sets. Why and who could
Cut this series off at the crucial time in the
Series??? I canna imagine the fool who
Would do such a shameful deed!

seriously, this was one of the best BBC shows, in recent years. First season was truly remarkable, second hit a little bit mild ( but historically the death of Lincoln had to be portrayed). Third season I was anticipating great things now nothing, tear hits the floor. Detective Corgan had rapidly become one of my top 5 T.V. characters. Netflix if BBC follows through, please pick up the series the Fifth Ward hangs in the balance!!!

I would have kept the show going. I thought it was great. I was looking forward to another season. I stubbled upon the series on Netflix one day and could’nt top watching. Now I’m sad because it’s canceled.
