Amazon Prime has confirmed that the upcoming fifth season of Ripper Street will be the last.

The Victorian crime drama, starring Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and MyAnna Buring, began on BBC One but was axed in 2013 after two series. Amazon Prime then stepped in to pick up the series for its streaming service recommissioning it for a further three series, the fifth of which is currently filming in Dublin.

Ripper Street follows the police officers of Whitechapel’s H-Division and their struggle to maintain law and order after the Jack The Ripper murders.

Ripper Street Season 5 will air on Amazon Prime Video later this year.
