Ripper Street - Revived by Amazon for a 3rd Season

Thanks to nuno for the heads up.

The e-tailer's U.K. online video service will get the third season of the crime drama, which the BBC had previously cancelled, before it airs on the public broadcaster.

The e-tailer acquired U.K subscription streaming rights to the show, which stars Matthew Macfadyen and is set in the age of Jack the Ripper. The BBC had previously canceled Ripper Street amid weak ratings.

Amazon will show the third season on Amazon Prime Instant Video for members, before its airing on BBC One, the pubcaster’s flagship channel, a few months later.
