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?

I missed out on Whitechapel the first time round and have become seriously hooked watching on ITV Encore. OMG what brilliant drama, acting and gripping story lines. It’s just BRILLIANT. Taking all that into account,why the hell have they axed it. It can’t be they ran out of ideas or even thought it had run its course. Please, please, I’m begging you. Don’t do this! Chandler, Miles, Buchan, Kent, Riley, Finley – they need closure. Oh ok; I need closure.

Where can I find re-runs?

ITV Encore or you could try Catch up on Sky if you have it. I-Player worth a try too. Good luck.

‘Whitechapel’ is no more. I was so looking forward to Series 5. Is there some sort of entity haunting the corridors of the Whitechapel police station?
An absolute tragedy to discontinue such a superb show.

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 love this show…..why can’t they cancel something else like Dr Who…seems like BBC America doesn’t care what they show..


linda hayes August 18, 2014 at 3:18 pm

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.
