Awards, ratings and renewal for the final series.
The compelling, well-written criminal drama with a rich period setting holds a score of 8.1/10 on IMDb and a sensational 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. The critical reception has been extremely positive throughout its run, and its success has been supported by 17 award nominations and 5 victories. However, Amazon already made an announcement that the fifth series is bound to be the last for the BAFTA-nominated Ripper Street. In the current series the protagonists are investigating a serial killer case, made especially difficult by the fact that the perpetrator has an amazing ability to elude apprehension. Series two Joseph Mawie should be making a guest appearance, joining the returning cast of Matthew Macfadyen, Adam Rothenberg and MyAnna Buring. Farewell, Ripper Street, may you be resurrected once again by another streaming service (wink, Netflix)
