"Ripper Street" is a crime drama series on BBC America created by Richard Warlow, set in and around Whitechapel in London's East End in 1889, during the aftermath of the Jack the Ripper murders. The action centers on the notorious H Division, which is charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of East London.

Haunted by the failure to catch London's most evil killer, Inspector Edmund Reid (Matthew Macfadyen) now heads up the notorious H Division, the toughest district in London's East End. Charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of Whitechapel, Inspector Reid is soon drawn deep into the seedy criminal underworld of Victorian London — where fear always lurks that each new murder could mark the return of The Ripper.

Season 2

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.

Season 5

Last season introduced a new serial killer plaguing the streets of Whitechapel. Convinced that the murderer's cannibalistic crimes were being covered up by another party, DI Reid and DI Drake's investigation pointed to a trail of corruption that led them right to the heart of Scotland Yard — specifically Assistant Commissioner Augustus Dove and his bestial brother Nathaniel Dove. During an attempt to bring down the Dove brothers, DI Drake lost his life to serial killer Nathanial, forcing DI Reid, CPT Jackson and 'Long' Susan on the on the run. Now, finding themselves on the other side of the law, revealing the truth about the unlawful siblings is not an easy task.

With a barbarous killer on the loose and a corrupt lawman leading the police force, DI Reid is unquestionably facing his toughest and most dangerous challenge yet. An epic battle on the meanest streets imaginable has just begun ... Will DI Reid finally be able to restore peace and justice in Whitechapel?

The "Ripper Street" cast includes Matthew Macfadyen ("MI-5," "Pride and Prejudice"), Jerome Flynn ("Game of Thrones"), Adam Rothenberg ("Alcatraz"), Myanna Buring ("The Twilight Saga," "White Heat") and David Dawson ("Luther," "Secret Diary of a Call Girl").
