I regret to inform you that BBC America has decided to pull the plug on its period drama Copper after only two seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series followed Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) in post-Civil War era New York City as he struggled with his own personal demons and the demons that plagued the slums of Five Points New York. The Season 2 finale on September 22 will now serve as a series finale.
Though the series added stars like Donal Logue, Billy Baldwin, and Alfre Woodard and took on a more serialized form of storytelling during Season 2, it was never the ratings success BBC America hoped it would be. Which is a shame, because Weston-Jones' face is nice to gaze at while you're trying to figure out what he's saying without closed captioning (sometimes I'm really bad with accents, so what?).
What do you think of this news? Will you miss Copper?
