Plot Synopsis

Set in Victorian London in the aftermath of Jack the Ripper's reign of terror, Inspector Edmund Reid heads up the notorious H Division, the toughest district in London's East End. Now, as imitators emerge and gangs terrorize, murder rates rise and each new murder could mark the return of The Ripper. Reid, who was one of the lead detectives on the Ripper case and is still haunted by the failure to catch London's most evil killer, and his partner, Sergeant Bennet Drake, are drawn into London's underbelly of prostitution, child gangs, and a white slavery ring. Plus, they must deal with a cholera outbreak and terrible secrets from their own histories.
RIPPER STREET returned for its second season on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on BBC America. As the century enters its final decade, recession stalks Great Britain. Its preeminent role in the world is under threat and nowhere is the bloated British Empire's problems felt more keenly than in its dark heart: the East End of London. The Metropolitan Police's H Division must battle new evils that threaten to disrupt the delicate peace struck at the end of Season 1.
On February 26, 2014, Amazon announced that it picked up RIPPER STREET for a third season. Season 3 will be exclusively available in the UK on Amazon Prime Instant Video, followed by broadcast on BBC One a few months later.
