In the final season, writer Richard Warlow shows how, as the Victorian age comes to a close, the police officers of H Division attempt to maintain law and order on the streets of Whitechapel. Joseph Mawle (In the Heart of the Sea) rejoins the series as the feared Detective Inspector Jedediah Shine, intent on a mission of revenge after last being seen in the series two finale when Inspector Reid (Matthew Macfadyen, The Enfield Haunting) plotted with Drake (Jerome Flynn, Game of Thrones) to take Shine’s life.
Amazon stepped in to save Ripper Street in early 2014, following outcry from fans when the show was cancelled by the BBC after two seasons, with the original Tiger Aspect production team being commissioned by Amazon to create a brand new series, which launched exclusively for Prime members in the UK in November 2014.
At the same time, series one and two were made available for unlimited streaming for Prime members. When Ripper Street series three launched on Prime Video, it was streamed more than any other TV show on the service and was the most popular British drama among subscribers. Series four launched exclusively for Prime Members in the UK in January 2016.
Amazon Prime members in the UK have access to all seasons of Ripper Street.
