Good news for fans of BBC AMERICA’s first original scripted drama Copper: the network has just announced its renewal for a second season, which is set to come in summer 2013! The series follows Irish immigrant cop Kevin Corcoran (played by British actor Tom Weston-Jones) as he seeks justice for the downtrodden in 19th century New York.

The network’s general manager Perry Simon says: “BBC AMERICA’s first original scripted series, 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.”
