BBC Give ‘Ripper Street’ A Second Series
The BBC has given their new series ‘Ripper Street’ a second series.
Ripper Street is a crime procedural set in Whitechapel a matter of months after the Ripper murders. The series stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn and Adam Rothenberg and is written by Richard Warlow.
“Quality and ambition run through Ripper Street, from Richard Warlow’s original scripts, the incredible cast and the captivating direction,” said the BBC’s controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson.
“All combine to create a period series with a modern and gripping edge that will return for a second series in 2014.”
Ripper Street launched with 7.89m viewers on December 30, with the first episode drawing nearly 90 complaints due to its graphic content.
The series has recently started up on BBC America.
Ripper Street’s first series continues this Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
