The new series of Tiger Aspect and Lookout Point’s period crime drama ‘Ripper Street’ will return on Amazon Prime Instant Video on 14 November.

Launching with a double bill, it has also been announced that the new episodes will be scheduled more like traditional TV in a regular weekly slot rather than the Netflix model of making a series available all at the same time. The new episodes will debut every Friday at 9pm with the series finale set for Boxing Day. The new series will consist of eight episodes.

Amazon invested in the third series of ‘Ripper Street’ after it was cancelled by the BBC. It marks Amazon’s first step into commissioning original drama series from the UK production sector. Amazon Prime Video will also offer subscribers exclusive scenes that will not be made available to the BBC, and the first two series of the show are also available to watch via Amazon.

The third outing will pick up four years later in 1894 and follow the story of the McNaughton memorandum, a Scotland Yard list of Jack The Ripper suspects.

Ripper Street creator and writer Richard Warlow (‘Waking the Dead’, ‘Mistresses’) said the series would be the most ambitious yet and that he had been handed complete control of the content and episode length.

Amazon head of content acquisitions Chris Bird added: “From what we’ve seen from the scripts and first edit it’s clear that this series has raised the bar, we’re confident that ‘Ripper Street’ fans will be thrilled with what they see.”

The BBC has put some money into the new series, which will play on BBC1 a few months after it is available on Amazon. It is being co-produced by BBC America and distributed globally by BBC Worldwide.

The series stars Matthew Macfadyen (‘Spooks’, ‘Robin Hood’), Jerome Flynn (‘Game of Thrones’), Adam Rothenberg (‘Alcatraz’), MyAnna Buring (‘The Descent’, ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’). All three seasons were filmed in Dublin, and the series was co-produced by Element Pictures and received funding from the Irish Film Board.

The first and second series of ‘Ripper Street’ employed over 5,000 Irish cast members, extras and crew, providing approximately 170,000 Irish work hours per series.
