Ripper Street will make its return next month after being axed from the BBC on its new home - Amazon Prime.

The Victorian crime drama will air the third series exclusively through the streaming service this November before broadcasting on BBC One in 2015 after fans petitioned for it to make a return.

Ripper Street

Matthew Macfadyen who plays lead character Detective Inspector Reid said: "[I'm] delighted and excited to be back for a third series of Ripper. Thank you to Amazon, thank you to our fans who wanted more, and thank you to our wonderful writers and producers for giving us the most thoroughly brilliant, gripping and heart-rending opening episodes."

The series will be released at 9pm every Friday from November 14 and is available to all members of Amazon Prime, who also get to enjoy an Amazon cut of all eight episodes, including exclusive scenes not going to the BBC.

A double bill kicks off the action and things come to a close with an explosive finale on Boxing Day.

Jerome Flynn who plays Detective Inspector Drake adds: "It is brilliant to be coming back ... There are many great stories and twists and turns for all the characters. The Drake we meet in episode one has certainly been on a journey since viewers last saw him."
