Amazon Prime has confirmed that Ripper Street will end after its upcoming fifth season.

The Victorian crime drama was cancelled by the BBC after its second season but was picked up by Amazon Prime for a third and recommissioned for two more following impressive viewing figures on the streaming site.

The first three seasons of the Victorian crime drama were shot at Clancy Barracks and the final two at the Kilternan Hotel and Country Club in Dublin with many Irish cast members and crew involved in the production.

The series stars Irish actress Charlene McKenna and Love/Hate star Killian Scott as well as Matthew Macfadyan, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and MyAnna Buring.

In response to the news McKenna tweeted, "We all knew it was coming... Always leave the party on a high!!!".

The final season will see the return of Joseph Mawle as Detective Inspector Jedediah Shine, who is out for revenge after Inspector Reid (Macfadyen) and Drake (Flynn) plotted to have him killed at the end of the second season.
