Amazon has announced that the third season of “Ripper Street” will premiere on its Prime Instant Video service in mid-November, with the eight-episode season later airing in the U.K. and on BBC America in the U.S. in 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Amazon and the BBC previously teamed to bring back the show, from producers Tiger Aspect Productions and Lookout Point, after the BBC canceled it citing weak ratings,” the story reports. “Legions of ‘Ripper Street’ fans had petitioned for its return. The series is co-produced in the U.S. by BBC America.”
The third season’s first and second episodes will be released to Amazon’s streaming customers on Nov. 14 at 9 p.m., with the next six episodes released weekly on Fridays. The season finale will be released Dec. 26.
Season three is set in 1894, four years after the second season ended.
