Victorian crime drama ‘Ripper Street’ will end after its’ fifth season, Amazon Prime has confirmed.

The show is currently shooting its’ fifth and final season at its’ new studio at the Kilternan Hotel and Country Club in South Dublin - where the fourth season was also shot - replacing the traditional production hub in Clancy Barracks where the first three seasons were based.

‘Ripper Street’ is a co-production between Ireland’s Element Pictures and the UK’s Tiger Aspect Productions and Lookout Point with funding from BBC, BBC Worldwide and the Irish Film Board.

Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg, MyAnna Buring and Irish actress Charlene McKenna are all reprising their roles for the new season, as well as Killian Scott who has been playing Augustus Dove since the fourth season.

The show has had a rocky production road after being cancelled by the BBC after two seasons, only to be picked up by Amazon Prime for a third season which aired late last year to critical acclaim. Two more seasons were subsequently ordered by the streaming site after the drama attracted larger viewing audiences than some of the biggest U.S. series on the service including ‘The Walking Dead’.

The first and second series of ‘Ripper Street’, which was all filmed in Ireland, employed over 5,000 Irish cast members, extras and crew. Extras Agency MovieExtras.ie are on board for season four and five of the show. Visual effects will once again take place at Screen Scene VFX, who have won a Royal Television Society Craft & Design Award for their work on the show.
