Copper will live to fight more 19th century crimes in 2013.
BBC America has announced a Season 2 renewal for the Tom Weston-Jones-anchored drama. The first original series from this network, Copper premiere to just under two million viewers and has remained steady since.
Said Perry Simon, General Manager, Channels, BBC Worldwide America, in making the announcement:
"Copper has proven to be a perfect fit for the channel. Our viewers have made it our highest-rated series premiere ever and highest-rated drama series ever. Production led by Tom Fontana, Will Rokos, Barry Levinson and Christina Wayne, along with the cast from both sides of the pond, truly captured the boiling pot that was New York City in 1864. We can't wait to get started on the second season."
It will be comprised of 13 episodes and debut in the spring of next year.
