BBC America's 'Copper' cancelled
The upcoming season 2 finale of BBC America’s Copper will be the series’ swan song.
The period crime drama, which was BBC America’s first original scripted series, starred Tom Weston-Jones as Kevin Cocoran, a detective who works in New York City’s notorious Five Points neighborhood during the 19th century.
“Copper has been a fascinating and exciting experience for everyone involved,” says BBC America General Manager Perry Simon. “The opportunity to work with 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. After 23 episodes, with Lincoln dead and the nation starting to heal, it seems a fitting moment to conclude this American story.”
It also starred Franka Potente (American Horror Story: Asylum), Kyle Schmid (Being Human) and in the recent season added Donal Logue (currently on Sons of Anarchy) and Alfre Woodard.
It’s season 2 finale airs Sept. 22 at 10 p.m.
