Amazon UK has renewed the historical drama Ripper Street for fourth and fifth seasons. Season four is expected to stream in the UK later this year and season five will stream sometime next year. Filming will begin soon.
The episodes will be shown on BBC America here in the states but it’s unclear exactly when.
Executive producer Saul Venit of Lookout Point, said, “Keeping this series going for 37 episodes over five series is a hugely exciting achievement and is testament to the extraordinary creative results, as well as to the visionary teams at BBC Worldwide and Amazon as our core commercial partners.”
As you may recall, Amazon rescued Ripper Street and renewed it for a third season after the BBC cancelled the series. The third season of the series is currently airing in the United States. The eight episodes will finish airing on June 17th.
