BBC America Cancels Copper

By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (September 21, 2013) - BBC America has cancelled the crime drama, Copper, after two seasons, writes Deadline.com.

The show, which features a New York detective solving murders in the Civil War era, captured decent ratings in season one, but decline sharply in season two. Sunday's season two finale will now be a series finale.

Copper garnered good reviews, particularly for its writing. The production team included such highly-respected TV veterans as Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson who teamed earlier for NBC's Homicide.

Deadline.com notes that Copper's season season seemed to lose momentum in part to the critical buzz for another BBC America drama, Orphan Black, the sci-fi series involving a mysterious woman and clones.

Copper's cast included Tom Weston-Jones as detective Kevin Corcoran, Donal Logue as a corrupt politician and Alfre Woodward as a former slave.
