Whitechapel: BBC Series Cancelled After Four Seasons

Whitechapel TV show canceledIt sounds like the Whitechapel TV show won’t be back for a fifth season. Lead actor Rupert Penry-Jones, who plays DI Joseph Chandler, broke the news via his Twitter account: “Sorry to be the bearer of bad news everyone but ITV don’t want any more Whitechapel. That’s all folks x.”

A detective drama, Whitechapel airs on BBC America here in the states but the cable channel has yet to announce when or if they will air the fourth season of six episodes. That batch finished airing in the UK on October 9th.

What do you think? Have you watched the Whitechapel TV series? Should BBC America run the final season?

Loved Whitechapel. Sorry to see it go. Tired of watching dumbed-down shows. One of the few show I watched on BBC. A real shame.

I have been wondering if and when it was coming back, first they were on the fence, then it was a go….then nothing…Ahh BBCA you screwed the avid watchers again…Copper now White Chapel….I am sure there are others I missing….Soon you won’t need a net work….No one will watch your “new shows”….knowing they will be cancelled in a blink…

Hope BBC America televises the rest of the series. Really like Whitechapel and LOVE Rupert Penry-Jones. I could just watch him read the phone book — he’d make it interesting. ( I know…phone books aren’t seen much these days.) Rupert is a great actor. Wish he’d be cast in a series in the US.
