Ripper Street 4

Season 4 is scheduled to begin on BBC Two in the fourth week of August.

Three years have passed since Reid left the heaving maelstrom of Whitechapel for a life of quiet contemplation by the sea with his daughter. However, he finds himself drawn back to the naphtha glare of those East London streets when he learns that Isaac Bloom, a Jewish mathematician who helped Reid on two previous Whitechapel investigations, is set to hang before the week is out.

Amazon confirmed in March that Ripper Street will come to an end with its fifth season later this year.
