Get More: Cancellations, News

Copper Cancelled No Season 3Copper‘s Season 2 finale, airing this Sunday, will in fact be its series finale, BBC America has announced.

“After 23 episodes, with Lincoln dead and the nation starting to heal, it seems a fitting moment to conclude this American story,” BBC America GM Perry Simon explained in a statement.

Simon added, “The opportunity to work with [executive producers] Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson, Will Rokos, Thomas Kelly and the extraordinary cast and crew on this journey is one that we are extremely proud of. Their vision to re-tell the immigrant experience through the melting pot of New York City was an original and fresh idea that melded well with the essence of BBC America’s programming.”

In Sunday’s final episode, “The Place I Called My Home,” Detective Kevin Corcoran, Robert Morehouse and Doctor Matthew Freeman — still reeling from Lincoln’s assassination — decide to join a national effort once more, spurring memories from the battlefield, bringing back faces from the past and creating opportunity for Five Points chaos to continue unabated.

TVLine’s Cable Renewal Scorecard has thusly been updated.

    • A great show on BBC

      • I really liked the first few episode then it just got so bad. I really wanted to keep liking it too.

        • Can you please tell us why you think this program “got so bad”? Not sure you are talking about the same show. Copper is amazing.

          • what because you disagree I must not be watching the same show? Why does any show become bad. Writing and direction being the cause here IMO. I love the producers and became fans of all the actors being that this was the first thing I’d seen many of them on. Well except Anastasia Griffith( Elizabeth Haverford) she was awful. As I said it had a strong start and around episode 4 it turned into crap. I was disappointed because it could have been great. I guess I’m not the only one who thought season 2 was bad seeing it’s been cancelled.

            was that a good enough explanation for you?

          • I think S Reyna was asking a legitimate question in a very polite way. Jeez Micronian, did your answer have to be so snarky? I was wondering what your reasoning was myself. I think Copper did have a slump period in the middle of the season last year, but I really enjoyed the addition of Donal Logue. To each his own.

          • Because micronian refers to the size of “its” ability to process thought and visual stimuli simultaneously. season 2 of Copper was a gem. the acting, depth the characters and the sets were all an improvement over season one . The only character I was glad to see gone was ” Anna Rielly” the evil devil child.. A creepy portrayal and over acted.. The BBC’s statement that .”.now that Lincoln is dead … fitting moment to end, etc was absurd

            I totally agree Marco!! This show is informative, action packed, very well written AND acted and I LOVE Anastasia Griffith. She played Elizabeth Haverford very well! GREAT show, it’s should have renewed for a third season. BBC America has lost it’s mind! And Micronian…chill out! It was just a question.

      • It was a great show until last nights final episode with the black doctor as a Simon La Gree character. The most disgustingly clueless episode in its brilliant albeit short run. I was embarrassed for the actor who had to bleed his soul out for that horribly condescending dialogue.

        • They don’t care if we like it or not. Whenever I get to know there is a new show on that people really like, I start to watch and just when you really like it, these fools cancel it. My 15 year old grandson just stumbled onto it recently. He’s been catching up in his computer and yesterday, I had to tell him not to bother.

    • Copper is just yet another really good show that has been cancelled. A cop show in New York in the 1800′s. What fool(s) made this decision? Anything and everything worth watching gets cancelled. Mob Doctor was another really goodshow. Like so many before me I hate all Tv stations. Going to drop all but the news and sports. I despise your cheap reality shows. I am, like far too many other people, tired of shows being cancelled brfore people even get to know they exist. People think TV is one big joke and they are so right!

    • A real to life cop show set in the mid 1800′s was excellent and this is why I don’t subscribe to network TV, download isn’t as disappointing when they pull the wool out from under you like this!

    • It is the best original tv series that addresses what happened to people when they immigrated to the US. Of course that is what our country was founded on but BBC decided to punish us and take away a great historical series. Too bad because we loved it!

    • I agree, she was wonderful. The entire cast was great and hopefully they’ll all move on to bigger things. I’m disappointed but not surprised by the cancellation. BBC America seemed to have lost interest in the series during season two…very little promotion. Now they’ll have an open hour time slot in which to air yet another episode of the ubiquitous “Top Gear!”

        Comment by Mel – September 19, 2013 03:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • No, I’m not interested either. BBC America could be showing a lot more UK television series, yet prefers to play endless reruns of Top Gear, Gordon Ramsay, and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

          • I agree that it is unfortunate that excellent programs ie Copper are cancelled. And I agree that BBC America plays waaaaay too much Top Gear, and why do we need Star Trek on their network when they should be broadcasting more of the fantastic programs from the UK.

            Comment by Sara – October 6, 2013 01:55 PM PDT  
        • I love Top Gear. I have zero interest in cars period, but I love the hosts and their interaction. It’s what makes me watch along w/ the celebrity guest portion. It’s been around in some form for over 30 years, so sorry, I don’t think it’s going anywhere. Maybe the problem is that the channel still doesn’t have much of a viewer following? I watched Copper and tried to get into Ripper Street but I had such a hard time understanding the accents I had to stop :/

          • Thanks for your comment Meredith. I am surprised at it’s longevity. Just goes to show there is something for everyone. As much as I love Copper, I will agree with you about Ripper Street. It did not do anything for me.

  • I watched them all so far in a fairly short amount of time. From a binge-watching perspective, It seems to me the story has gone downhill in season 2, I hate to say. Not Dexter downhill (that’s tough to beat), just a direction that was making the show seem a lot smaller and simpler than it could have been. The world of Copper seems now to take place in an area the size of Sesame Street. Everyone gets everywhere they need to go in a few seconds, except when it serves the story that they don’t. Characters become bad guys then good guys again without consequence. I was hoping this season would be more centered on the Lincoln assassination, told from the Five Points perspective. At the beginning they even introduced John Wilkes Booth. I thought maybe Corcoran would get a tip about the upcoming play and we’d see what progress was made over the season and how Wilkes ultimately outsmarted them. Instead, we get a plotline about an evil police chief (or whatever he was) trying to turn five points into an aquaduct. I like these actors, though – hope to see them in better BBC material.

    • Don’t know much about New York City, do you? Five Points is an area maybe 8 blocks by 5 blocks. Not big at all. And the Tameny Hall corruption was the story of the time.

    • I Agree R.O.B.
      The actors continue to shine on Copper but the writing was weak this season.
      They’re just phoning it in on Dexter , it’s really bad.

    • For me, Ripper Street is almost as much a favorite as Copper, but Copper is the one I have the deepest attachment to. Broadchurch I am watching, but if it stopped in the middle of the current season it wouldn’t bother me; I just don’t have an emotional or intellectual investment in the characters or the solution to the murder. And Orphan Black? I just couldn’t get past the first two episodes. It wasn’t that interesting.

  • By erasing yourself through the public wifi network (although you’re actually connected),
    you are able to prevent a packet sniffer from seeing you as being a potential target.
    In addition to sightseeing, you’ll find unlimited entertainment opportunities for
    your discerning travelers, ensuring probably the most worthwhile holiday experience ever.
    If you remain at airport hotels you then can accomplish that quickly
    at all since they are located very close to the hotel.

  • What on earth?!!! I can’t believe this!!! Copper was by far the best series on BBC America, with a totally unique voice not remotely replicated elsewhere. And it was definitely in my top five series on all networks of the last five years. This show will indeed be mourned, and BBC America will go from definitely appointment viewing to maybe-I’ll-get-around-to-it-if-I’m-bored.

  • I went to the BBC America site and there was no mention of a cancellation. Why wouldn’t they put something on their site if this was true? This is the only show on BBC America that I watch so if they cancel this show they’ve lost at least two viewers in my household alone and I’m sure that’s true of a lot of people. Surely they won’t risk losing such a large number of viewers. Please, please, tell me it’s not true. Why do networks cancel such high quality programs and leave crap on for decades…reality TV SUCKS! I’m soooooo disappointed.

  • This is the best show on tv and the best in a very long time. I can’t believe they cancelled Copper. Makes absolutely no sense. Just like FireFly. Browncoats are still PO’d to this day they cancelled that show. They cancel Copper but Jersey Shore ran for 6 years, are you kidding me? The Simpsons is still on TV after god know how many years and they cancel Copper? What is wrong with these people? Along with a large number of Copper twitter followers I mailed 3 letters myself asking to renew Copper. I have never sent a letter to any network in my life. That how good this show is. I guess the fans and the people actually wanting to watch the show don’t matter? It’s not ratings. Copper is blowing the rating out of the water.

    “it seems a fitting moment to conclude this American story” Are you kidding me? Sure it might be a “fitting” ending if you started the series a lot further back, before the draft wars in Five Points, during the gang problems, The Old Brewery….there is so much they should have been able to add to Copper allowing us to grow with these characters and this amazing cast. You have just started giving us the best thing ever on tv then just take it away!?

    I am still in shock and really mad actually. I wonder if it would make a difference if the fans bombarded the BBC America with mail asking for them to reconsider? I would send 5 letters a day if that’s what it took. This is a sad day.

  • “The cancellation comes following the show’s modest ratings.” Do they even take into consideration that because of the late hour on a Sunday night, not everyone watches it when it actually airs? Some of us DVR it or watch it “On Demand” or online? This show is pure GOLD! It was like crack…I couldn’t get enough! I would spend all week anxiously awaiting the next episode! What in the hell are they thinking?? This is like asking me if I want to read your book and then ripping out the last three chapters before you hand it to me. They keep sucking me in and then ripping the rug out from under me. THIS was the show that brought me back to that channel (against my better judgement)…..and they did it to me yet again. You screwed me for the last time BBC America…NEVER again!!! I’m ALL DONE!

  • I haven’t been this bummed for the loss of a unique show since HBO canceled Deadwood. I know Deadwood bit the dust because David Milch was moving on to “Cincinnati” but still. Someone in an earlier post mentioned DVR viewing of “Copper.” That would include my household. I’d say well over 90% of our Copper viewing was done via TiVo.

    This film talks about reality of difference race and how they managed to survive even in time of war, segregation and hunger.

  • Plus there is so much competition for shows on Sunday nights that I spend the next several days catching up on what I recorded or what is available on demand. Maybe if they scheduled Top Gear against Dexter, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, True Blood, at falling Skies and the Good Wife they’d see what type of ratings it would get then. Why the hell did BBCA go into the production of stateside vehicles anyway if they weren’t committed. At last Orphan Black is co produced with Canada so there’s less risk for the obviously risk averse BBCA. Can you imagine if El Jazeera America had such an attitude. They’d look like Current and not the big news gathering operation they are trying to put together.

  • Are any of us surprised tha BBC America has made another blunder with the programming ? These are the same people who pulled Eastenders due to back veiwership. They started EE on Friday afternoon Sr a time that most Americans are at work and should all 4 episodes one after the other all on one afternoon. Then the moved it to all 4 episodes on a Saturday afternoon at the peak of college football season. Most people has to record EE on Friday and Saturday so since it wasn’t viewed live BBC A cancelled. Totally worthless group in BBC A. Idiots. So now with Copper not having a true ending they cancel. Is anyone really surprised by the ignorance of BBC A??

The lame people at BBC America made a very poor decision, and will not follow any more of their programming, unless they change their minds and bring back Copper for season 3. Reality shows on the other networks suck.

  • PLEASE PLEASE RENEW COPPER! I never watched BBC before stumbling on Copper. Just got hooked and was looking for other shows on the network. I’ll stop watching it all together if they don’t bring Copper back. Sick of great shows being cancelled!

    • Same exact thing for me and I completely agree. If they don’t bring Copper back, I am done!

  • I am FURIOUS right now finding out that Copper has been cancelled. I have been telling all my friends and family to watch it!!! This is just so irritating, with all the crap on TV why is it that shows that are actually good keep getting cancelled?? This has ruined my day. I just need to stop watching TV all together.

  • Here we go again, another great series cancelled. I guess they needed the time to show more reruns of Kitchen Nightmares and ST:TNG. Only show left to watch on BBCA is Orphan Black, which will probably be axed after its second season, too.

  • Extremely disappointed and shocked at the cancellation of Copper. What a truly adult viewing experience. Shame on you BBC. Won’t be watching anymore programming on your network!

  • I really liked this show and grew to love the characters. I am stunned that it was cancelled with so many unanswered questions in the plot.

  • They ended it with a horrific cliffhanger, because even the writers didn’t know there wasn’t going to be a season 3. BBC committed an injustice on its viewers.

    If you really want to save Copper, join our campaign to do so. Visit

    We have a letter writing campaign, email campaign and there is a petition. We are wrting Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson, Cineflix and anyone associated with Copper to let them know they have the fans support in either bringing back show on another network or a movie.

    Our goal is to find another network to take on Copper or to help Tom Fontana see his movie made to wrap up what was to be Season 3.

    So please, anyone who is interested, join the cause today before it is too late.

  • I can’t believe they cancelled Copper after 2 seasons! Why? What happened? My husband and I loved that show. We looked forward to watching it every week. I thought it was more about the start of the NYC police department not about recovering from the Civil War. Bring it back for another season please!!!!
