oh no! I was going to start watching this show. I’ll watch it anyway but, ugh… Damn it :(
Alas, it’s true. :( I suggest you give it a try anyway: the first season in particular is amazing! It’s very unlikely that the show will get to resolve some plotlines (there are two episodes left, and, from the words of one of the actors, the news of cancellation was shocking, so I’m assuming that they believed that the show would have been renewed, and they perhaps didn’t think to shoot a conclusive ending); if that doesn’t bother you, go ahead! There are some initiatives going on on the web right now to try to save the show: I don’t know if they will lead us anywhere, but I believe an effort is worth for Ripper Street! ;)
This week the cast and crew learned that Ripper Street was not renewed for a third series because of low ratings. There are only 2 more shows before the end. You can read more about it here.
If you disagree with BBC’s decision to axe the show, I suggest to you let BBC know by doing the following:
You can contact Feedback on Radio 4 to complain about axing of #RipperStreet by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 03 333 444 544
You can ring the BBC on 03700 100 222* press 1 and leave complaint about axing of #RipperStreet. (*charged as 01/02 no.)
And you can sign a petition and follow @SaveRipperSt
Additionally, BBC America was slated to launch the second series on December 1 in the US. However, the launch has been pushed back quietly to some unknown date in 2014.
