The first and second series of Ripper Street employed 5,000 Irish cast, extras and crew and contributed EUR20m in total to the Irish economy.
When the show was canceled by the BBC, an online petition to save it attracted over 40,000 signatures.
The first three seasons were filmed entirely in Dublin, Ireland.
DI Edmund Reid is based on the real life DI Reid who was in charge of investigating two of Jack the Rippers suspected victims. His real life boss was also Frederick Abberline as per the show.
In December 2013, the BBC announced that it was canceling the show after two seasons, citing low viewing figures in the United Kingdom as the reason for its cancellation. Tiger Aspect, the show's producer, began negotiations with LOVEFilm - since folded into Amazon Instant Video - about funding a third season. A deal was reached, and the third season began filming in May 2014, before beginning streaming on Amazon UK Prime Instant Video on 14 November 2014. However, the third season was not added to Amazon Instant Video in the United States, but aired instead on BBC America in early 2015 and in the UK in July 2015.
The division of the Metropolitan Police setting for this program, H division, was and still is a real division of east London that is today known at HT division. It covers the area of London governed as the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Leman Street has since relocated and closed its doors to the public, the divisional headquarters now being at Bethnal Green Police Station in Victoria Park Square.
