Helping pave the way for the “resurrection” was a deal with Amazon, which acquired subscription streaming rights to the BBCA coproduction for the UK.

  • Oh dear, the way you write your article, it’s as if BBC America renewed it only days after it aired… when the show was cancelled by BBC late last year, and it’s only *now* that it was saved by Amazon Prime Instant Video UK. It’s almost a miracle for us fans and you just make it seems so… common.

  • Is this going to be an American production now? I thought I read somewhere that BBC canceled it?

    • Still a BBCA/Tiger Aspect Productions/Lookout Point production.

    • Agreed! I too, wish we would get some more Copper, especially since it ended with massive cliffhangers.

  • I had no idea it was cancelled to begin with, which is a shame because I think the show has steadily gotten better since the pilot. Glad someone came to their senses to give this show a third season.

    • I didn’t realize it either. I knew that Copper was cancelled, and I think I was just getting the two mixed up.

  • My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year
    and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic
    things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  • I’m just a viewer but fan of BBC productions. They have never disappointed me. In my humble opinion the acting is outstanding. The costuming and sets beyond splendid. To me, they are excellent at their craft. Each show is almost like a motion picture. It’s always a downer for me when a show is cancelled. Loved “Copper”, and will miss them. Fortunately, the others are hanging on ……An American fan
