Rejoice, fans of Ripper Street. The show isn't dead!
The second series of Ripper Street is currently being shown on BBC America, but the show was cancelled after just two series on BBC One in UK, citing low ratings. 3.2 million people watched the final episode of the second series.
A backlash developed. More than 40,000 people signed a change.org petition to save the show.
Why? Well many fans thought the cancellation was a mistake.
Amazon Prime? The delivery service on Amazon? Nope. It's Lovefilm, which is being renamed Amazon Instant Video.
It's a significant moment in British television. It's the first time a cancelled British show has been resurrected by a video-on-demand company.
Of course, America has already done this. Netflix brought back Arrested Development for a fourth series last year after the show was cancelled by Fox in 2006. Amazon Prime has also been committed to developing original programming, releasing a string of original pilots on their video-on-demand service in the States just last month.
