Ripper Street Cancelled

TVLine Items: Ripper Street Ends, Retta Joins ABC's Hail Mary Pilot and More

Ripper Street is getting detoured again — and this time it’s permanent.

Amazon Prime confirmed Monday that the Victorian crime mystery will end after its upcoming fifth season.

To recap, the streaming service saved Ripper Street — which centers on a group of detectives trying to maintain law and order in a place once terrorized by Jack the Ripper — after it was axed by the BBC in 2013, following its second season.

Production on Season 5 is currently underway in Dublin, for a debut later this year.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Parks and Recreation‘s Retta will co-star on Hail Mary, ABC’s comedy pilot about small-town mayor Mary Wolf (Happy Endings’ Casey Wilson) who fakes a miracle when her life threatens to implode. Per THR, Retta will play Ruthie, Mary’s friend.

* E! has renewed its reality series Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry — in which the titular 20-year-old clairvoyant gives readings to celebrities — for a second season.

* Fox announced Monday that the second annual American Country Countdown Awards will air live on Sunday, May 1, at 8/7c.

* Jessica Camacho, who currently plays Sophie Foster on Sleepy Hollow, has been cast in Harley and the Davidsons, Discovery’s upcoming miniseries about the Harley-Davidson motorcycle company. She will play Reya, a strong and fearless member of an early biker club.

    Bummer about Ripper Street, but I am glad to have gotten 3 more series than we would have had if Amazon hadn’t stepped in.
