Ripper Street: Season Three Will Be Released on Blu-ray and DVD on June 23rd

Four years have passed since Reid called for Drake to end the life of Jedediah Shine. Four years that have seen the crime-fighting axis of Reid, Drake, and Jackson split and isolated from one another. Drake (Jerome Flynn, Game of Thrones) has left London for Manchester to become the policeman – and man – he felt he could no longer be in Whitechapel. He is an Inspector himself now. Jackson (Adam Rothenberg, Elementary) has reverted to the man Reid plucked out of the Tenter Street brothel, a two-penny sawbonesand a snake-oil pushing clap-doctor. And Reid has succumbed to his own shame and isolation, policing Whitechapel with a level of forensic detail and dedication that leads Chief Inspector Fred Abberline to fear for his old friend’s mental well-being.

TO BLU-RAY & DVD ON JUNE 23rd, 2015

New York – May 19, 2015 – BBC Home Entertainment announces the release of Ripper Street: Season Three on Blu-ray and DVD June 23, 2015. Inspector Edmund Reid (Matthew MacfadyenMI-5) returns to the seedy criminal underworld of London, hell-bent on taking back the blood-stained streets of Whitechapel.  Ripper Street: Season Three premiered on BBC AMERICA Wednesday, April 29th, 2015.

Meanwhile, Long Susan (MyAnna Buring, Downton Abbey) has made good on her threats to both Captain Jackson and the dying Silas Dugan – she has separated from her husband and taken command of Duggan’s criminal empire, turning it into a legitimate property empire of huge philanthropic ambition. But such aspirations are costly, as her loyal but scheming solicitor Ronald Capshaw knows only too well.
All these resentments, fears, and ambitions are soon forgotten, however, when two trains collide on the newly constructed bridge above Leman Street. It is a catastrophe which falls into Reid’s world and demands explanation. His pursuit reunites him with Drake and Jackson, and sets him on his own collision course with his past and with the secret crimes of Long Susan and Ronald Capshaw.
The third season of Ripper Street was filmed in Manchester, Loughborough, and Dublin and is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions and Lookout Point. It is co-produced by BBC AMERICA and Amazon Prime Instant Video, and distributed by BBC Worldwide.    
Matthew Macfadyen 
The fallout from his failure to catch Jack the Ripper still casts thick and protracted shadows for Detective Inspector Edmund Reid. Yet since the departure of his friend and comrade, Inspector Bennet Drake, Reid has succumbed to the kind of moral entropy he had always previously fought…and it has created a hole where his heart should be. Reid has yielded to his own shame and isolation, policing Whitechapel with a level of forensic detail and obsession that leads Chief Inspector Fred Abberline to fear for his mental well-being. Reid is a man isolated in the world, and it may only be the return of Drake that can help cast aside his dark abyss. 
Jerome Flynn
Bennet Drake has undergone a personal revolution. He has grieved the loss of his wife, Bella, and he has reinvented himself. His thuggish past entirely rejected, he has foresworn violence and dedicated himself to becoming the policeman – the man – he always wanted to be: calm, methodical, procedural; a man of peace. But this has only been made possible by distancing himself from Whitechapel, the place he was born and raised, and by leaving London for Manchester where four years of exemplary policing have seen him promoted to Detective Inspector. But now he is back and ready to tackle the dark forces of East London once again.
Adam Rothenberg
American native Homer Jackson is no longer bound by the need to evade the authorities in his homeland. Despite his newfound freedom he cannot bear to leave the Whitechapel streets that he now considers his true home. When his marriage to Long Susan collapsed, Jackson reverted to the man Reid plucked out of the Tenter Street brothel: a two-penny sawbones and a snake-oil pushing clap-doctor. Not that this situation currently riles him – he has all the time in the world to indulge his desires. But Drake and Reid require his unique skill set once again and he is unwillingly pulled back into the lures of H Division.
MyAnna Buring
Her marriage to Captain Homer Jackson may have disintegrated but, in the intervening four years, Long Susan has embraced her philanthropic work with Obsidian Estates.  But the one business from which she will no longer profit is prostitution – never again will she exploit another woman for her commercial gain. Instead Susan has learned the good she can provide to the streets of Whitechapel – the lives she can potentially change. But she is still ambitious, and it is her ruthless streak that may be her undoing...
