BBC America cancels Copper, puts NYC's 1860s-era Five Points district in peril once again

Copper won’t live to see another bleak day in New York’s Five Points. The 1860s cop drama has been cancelled by BBC America after two seasons, airing its final episode Sept. 22. The show debuted on August 2012 and did relatively well, with the network at one point calling Copper its highest-rated drama to date. Unfortunately, the show floundered in its second season and failed to find a solid base, much like an Irish cop might after drinking several pints of whiskey.

According to Variety, the second season finale will, for all intents and purposes, leave the series in a good place, and won’t leave too many angry viewers wondering what happened to the titular copper Kevin “Corky” Corcoran, rich dude Robert Morehouse, rich gal Elizabeth Haverford, or terrifying orphan Annie Reilly.
