Amazon today announces that the final series of Ripper Street will launch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the UK, with all six episodes available from 12th October.
The thrilling final series, which tells a single story across the season, sees our heroes become fugitives and forced to operate outside the law as they pursue the most insidious enemy they have encountered yet.
Series Five sees Inspector Reid (Matthew Macfadyen, The Enfield Haunting) Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg, The Immigrant) and ‘Long’ Susan Hart (MyAnna Buring, The Twilight Saga) hunting a serial killer (Jonas Armstrong, Robin Hood) with subhuman desires, but a superhuman ability to avoid apprehension.
The new adventure also sees the return of a familiar foe in Detective Inspector Jedediah Shine (Joseph Mawle, In the Heart of the Sea) who returns to Whitechapel to hunt down its newest fugitives.
Ripper Street is Written and created by Richard Warlow and produced by Tiger Aspect Drama and Lookout Point.
