..Ripper Street Series 4 and 5.
The period crime drama ‘ Ripper Street’ will be back on the streaming service for a further 2 seasons, after Amazon Prime announced its renewal.

Seasons 1 and 2 of the show both originally aired on the BBC, but when the show was subsequently cancelled Amazon Prime Instant came in and saved it.  Ripper Street in its 3rd season went onto be Amazons most watched show last year and has also now signed a deal with both the BBC and BBC worldwide for them to air the series after the streaming service.

Ripper Street is set in the East End of London in 1889 and follows H Division, the police precinct from hell which is charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of Whitechapel.

Ripper Street writer and creator Richard Warlow said: “It is a great privilege to be asked to continue this journey through Victorian Whitechapel.  I had always hoped that Ripper Street would live to follow the world of ‘H’ Division right through to the end of the Victorian age itself; so with many great thanks to Amazon, and all those viewers who have taken Ripper Street to their hearts, it’s a delight to have now been given that very opportunity.”

Vice President of Amazon Instant Video EU  Jay Marine, added “We’re excited to add to our premium original TV line-up with the production of a further two series of this hit show exclusively for our UK Prime customers. With two Golden Globes under our belt already this year for Amazon Original Series Transparent, we want to cement our position as the home for the best TV in the business.”

Ripper Street series 4 should air later this year, with series 5 set to be released in 2016.  The BBC will air Ripper Street season 3 later this year.
