All six episodes of series five in Richard Warlow's Victorian-set crime drama Ripper Street will arrive on Amazon Video in the UK on the 12th of October.

Series five, announced earlier this year as the show's final run, began filming in Dublin this March. The speedy turnaround means that fans watching via the streaming service will be treated to two series in a single year.

Amazon rescued the detective drama after its cancellation by the BBC in 2013, giving Warlow the chance to expand the story of Edmund Reid and co. with three further series. 


According to the Amazon press bumf, the show's six final episodes "make up one single story. Our heroes become fugitives, forced to operate outside the law as they pursue the most insidious enemy they have encountered yet." Said enemy is "a serial killer with subhuman desires, but a superhuman ability to avoid apprehension", played by Robin Hood's Jonas Armstrong.

The new episodes will welcome the return of Matthew Macfadyen, Adam Rothenberg, MyAnna Buring, with series two's Joseph Mawle making a return appearance as Detective Inspector Jedidiah Shine. 

Series four is currently nearing the end of its run on BBC Two.  [Den of Geek]

    1. Here's the synopsis of Ripper Street (via IMDB): Jack the Ripper was a serial killer who butchered a number of women in and around the Whitechapel District of London in 1888. This drama begins about six months after the final murder, with now-peaceful East London hoping that the reign of terror is over. Among the hopeful are members of H Division, the police precinct tasked with keeping order in the district, including Detective Inspector Edmund Reid, a forward-thinking detective haunted by a past mistake that ended in tragedy. While trying to keep order in the chaotic streets of Whitechapel, Reid is soon drawn into the seedy criminal underworld of Victorian London, where each new murder elicits fear that the Ripper may be back.
