Exciting news, BBC America issued a press release today with details of upcoming broadcasts,

including the premiere date of Ripper Street series 2

 

 

BBC America Press Release

Ripper Street – Second Season Premieres Sunday, December 1, 10:00pm ET/PT

BBC AMERICA’s Victorian London crime series returns with stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and Myanna Buring  as Inspector Reid, Sergeant Drake, Captain Jackson and madam Long Susan. The new season moves the action forward to 1890. As the century enters its final decade, the streets teeter on the brink of moral collapse, and nowhere is the declining British Empire’s problems felt more keenly than in its dark heart: the East End of London. Ripper Street is produced for BBC ONE by Tiger Aspect Productions, Lookout Point and BBC AMERICA.

we will obviously need to await official confirmation for a uk date but:

 

 

with the following qualification from Tiger Aspect:

 

 @DMolonyForum But that is not a guarantee and final confirmation will come from BBC!

Yay! Earlier than i expected...so fingers crossed any time from maybe end of September (by the time they've finished editing and doing their magic) to Christmas time, before December 1st (which is a Sunday, so theoretically you could list every Sunday from the theoretical end of September til December 1st)

series 1 premiered Feb 24 in the uk, March 9 on BBC America so we were 2 weeks ahead.

Thought it started TXing before that Domino?? End of December wasn't it?

I'd be surprised if the Beeb would start the second series that close to Christmas; they don't generally like splitting shows across that period. More likely to either start early and finish the week before Christmas or start on the weekend after...

My bad, you're right Kat I was muddling up my premieres with my end of the series! the final episode of series 1 aired on 24th Feb in uk, the first episode on December 30 December 2012, and it premiered on 19th Jan 2013 on BBC America. still a 2 week gap.

So if it goes the same way, we only have five months to wait! It will go by in a flash - but mustn't wish my life away. Even for Damien.

Surely the promo about him joining the cast must start soon - September perhaps?

Mid-November would work if it's a 6 episode series as it would bring the finale up to Dec 22nd. And if they run it directly after the Strictly results show then they could garner some extra viewers.

Doesn't give them much editing time for the final block though...

Agree Kat - and won't it be on at the same time as Downton Abbey?  Not a good move for the audience ratings. It's also going to be 8 weeks long.

I'd love to see Damien & Ripper Street this Autumn, but it all seems rather rushed. It's so unusual to push a big series forward. They're usually put back to give it more publicity.

Is it 8? Oops.

Then it would have to be transmitting from 3rd November and that seems very early for something that doesn't finish filming before the end of August, but they could be quick turnaround kind of people!

I agree with Laura that it would seem rushed to get it in this Autumn, so maybe the Americans will get it first.

I was on Google trying to find more info and found this link. Ripper Street is a co-production with BBC America so mabe they were given the choice to show it first.

Ripper Street is a co-production between BBC America, BBC and Tiger Aspect productions.

we have a topic on Official pages here

anyway, until we hear anything to the contrary to what Tiger Aspect tweeted me yesterday, I am still squeeeing!

Crazy Theory #1:

Damien is the next Doctor, to regenerate at the Christmas special - They want to air Ripper Street so people will fall in love with him (yes boggles the mind there are some who haven't already) before the big #12 reveal.

 

Crazy Theory #2:

Damien is not the next Doctor.  BBC's been inundated with cries for Damien as the next Doctor and to appease the rabid fans that will surely be crestfallen when #12 is not Damien, they've decided to air Ripper Street early.  Give the fans DaMo telly time so that there isn't a full scale war when another Doctor is revealed. 

 

wink As you were...

Exactly! That is why I said that it might be early so that RS could be all done and dusted before DW starts - even the Xmas edition.

 

I know he won't be a star of RS but he might be of DW or something else in the pipeline which we don't know about.

I like both of these theories whimsy!

theory #3 Damien was offered the role of the twelfth Doctor, but he turned it down because he has been head hunted by several film directors, and has signed on for a major leading film role which begins shooting right after Ripper Street! action

theory #4 same as theory #1 but with added Being Human Christmas special

theory #5 same as #4 but with added 'Hal's Horrible Histories' spin off drama for BBC One written by Toby Whithouse

theory #6 same as #5 but with added leading role in Toby Whithouse's upcoming 'The Game' which begins filming very soon after finishing Ripper Street!

theory #7 all of the above plus squeezing in a lead role at the Royal Court Theatre's new season in Autumn.

BBCA posted the link to their press site on twitter yesterday, strongly suggesting there is no mistake in the date, the BBC America premiere is 1 December!

Crazy theory #1 is what I have been thinking. If he is the Doctor, they wouldn't want him to be revealed as the Doctor and then go almost straight into the Ripper Street series. the GBP would get very confused!

Well, not meaning to rain on anyone's parade but airing Ripper Street 'early' won't be anything to do with Damien's star status. He won't be the star this time around, there's Matthew MacFadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg, MyAnna Buring and Charlene McKenna in this too. More than likely it will air earlier than series one because series one was more successful than they ever dreamed of and perhaps they want to capitalise on it. But still, Damien on a BBC1 hit drama with viewing figures several times over those of Being Human is excellent for him. It will get him noticed (noticed more!)

We don't know the duration of Damien's role in S2. Is he a new regular, a new recurring, is his storyline just for this series and if it's the latter and he's offered Twelve, if he wants it and the Who bods want him, he could slot in just nicely. I don't think it would be weird at all. It's not unknown for actors to be all over the place and in everything for a short period of time, this is down to television programme scheduling and out of the control of the actors. If Damien were to get Twelve, we'd see a glimpse of him at Christmas (depending on when in the ep Twelve would be introduced, Eleven was intro'd right at the end of Tennant's farewell ep) and episode one of Twelve proper won't be transmitted til next summer at the earliest, so plenty of time. :)

We were just having fun Lisa! As you know I'm usually very reluctant to speculate unrealistically

Ruby - have to beg to differ....in my mind at least, Damien will always be the star of whatever he is in, whatever his role!!!!

Does anyone know what tv bods call autumn? (I only ask because, despite having their long hols in the summer, schools have summer,spring and autumn terms, and no winter term).  When do they think autumn ends?

Oh yes....and woohoo.  It's great to actually have some more news.  And how brilliant is it that you are chatting with tiger aspect,  domino?!
