Ripper Street Season 4: Watch the Trailer

Matthew MacFadyen Ripper StreetAmazon Prime has released a new trailer and some plot details for the fourth season of their acclaimed Victorian-era crime drama, Ripper Street.

Ripper Street chronicles the efforts of the members of H Division as they try to deal with crime, promote justice, and make sense of the madness that is Whitechapel. The series stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg, MyAnna Buring, and Charlene McKenna, who will all return for the fourth season.

Lucy Cohu (Broadchurch) and Derek Riddell (Happy Valley) will be reprising their roles from previous seasons. New cast members include David Threlfall (Shameless), Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter), David Warner (The Omen), and Killian Scott (Calvary.)

Here is the official synopsis for the upcoming season:

“The new season begins in the summer of 1897 with Queen Victoria celebrating her diamond jubilee. Edmund Reid (Matthew Macfadyen) has left the force which gave him his career and left the neighbourhood which shaped his life. He finds himself drawn back to Whitechapel when he discovers that his old friend Isaac Bloom (Justin Avoth) is set to hang for a brutal murder; a murder of which Reid believes him incapable.
Detective Inspector Bennet Drake (Jerome Flynn) has now risen to the level of Head of H Division, holding a position of trust and status in Whitechapel. What’s more, he’s now married to the love of his life Rose Erskine (Charlene McKenna). The last two years have treated Rose kindly but, despite her happy marriage and successful career, she can’t help but be troubled that she and Drake have so far been unable to have a child.
Adam Rothenberg returns as surgeon Captain Homer Jackson, assisting Drake in investigating the criminal goings on in Whitechapel. When we catch up with Jackson, however, his wife Long Susan Hart (MyAnna Buring) is only weeks away from being executed for her part in the deaths of the fifty five souls who perished in the Leman Street locomotive disaster of 1894.
Now a mother to two year old Conor Judge, Long Susan has spent the last two and a half years residing in the Mother and Infants Wing of Newgate Prison. Time is fast running out for Long Susan but can Jackson save her?”

Ripper Street season 4 episodes will stream on Amazon Prime every Friday starting 15 January 2016.
