Copper: The Final Two Episodes

BBC America’s first original scripted series, Copper, which delivered the channel’s highest rated series premiere ever, is building to an explosive finale that will change lives and New York City forever.  With Confederate terrorists threatening to destroy the city as they know it, unexpected traitors will be revealed and once air-tight bonds will be broken beyond repair.  The gripping drama – filled with intrigue, corruption, mystery and murder – will close its record-breaking season with Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) giving everything he has to protect his town from the terrorist attack he knows is coming. From award-winning executive producers Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson and Will Rokos, the penultimate episode of Copper, “A Day To Give Thanks” will air October 14 at 10/9c, and the season finale, “A Vast and Fiendish Plot” will air October 21, 10/9c.

The series began with Corcoran’s search for answers after returning from the Civil War to find his daughter murdered and wife missing.  Assisted by partner and friend, Detective Francis Maguire (Kevin Ryan) and Detective Andrew O’Brien (Dylan Taylor), Corcoran seeks justice for the powerless as a way of dealing with the injustice of his own loss. His friendship with two Civil War compatriots – Robert Morehouse (Kyle Schmid), the wayward son of a wealthy industrialist and African-American Doctor Matthew Freeman (Ato Essandoh), who secretly assists Corcoran with his work – takes him to the contrasting worlds of elegant Fifth Avenue and Northern Manhattan.

In the season finale, Corcoran teams up with Robert Morehouse and the coppers of the Sixth Precinct to thwart a brazen terrorist attack on New York City by Confederate soldier’s intent on watching the city burn.  With his personal life in shambles, his closest friendship in pieces and the truth finally uncovered about his daughter’s death, Corcoran must set aside his inner turmoil to save the city he vehemently protects. Meanwhile, betrayal runs deep as Morehouse learns just how entangled his father has become with his new business associates. Madam Eva Heissen (Franka Potente) and Aristocrat Elizabeth Haverford (Anastasia Griffith) find themselves in unexpected positions, while in Carmansville, Doctor Matthew Freeman makes a dangerous decision in defending his wife.

  • Dori A

    Please tell us we are going to get more Copper! I know BBC America doesn’t officially “renew” series, but this one is different. You can’t tell us how successful the show is without telling us it will continue!

  • Nanavamp

    BBC America is a shinning star next to some dull programming on the other networks. ~ I hope you will renew Copper. ~ I’m a big fan of Doctor Who, too.

    • Peter Koenig

      Agree completely. Copper is superb overall, and by far one of the best series on tv. Note to advertisers: BBC America has excellent viewer demographics – we’re bright and discerning; we pay close attention to the show; we buy lots of stuff.

  • Bob Johnson

    I love this series. I am hooked – characters, plot, look, and sound. A+ all around.

  • ProfDar

    I absolutely love this show. The only problem is not being able to understand the dialogue. The dialects, the background noise…just make it hard to discern what is being said. Certainly doesn’t keep me from watching, but may cause others to stay away.

    • Sam

      That is why my closed captioning option is turned on, we also have a hard time understanding the dialects, but I would not change a thing on Copper. Excellent show!

  • kaysim

    Yes, yes, yes!! Please, BBC America, renew Copper!

  • mylady

    Continued shows of Copper show what life was like in 1864 New York. It impressed upon me the history that we so often neglect. It was a wonderful, adult show…umm wonder if we can make it into a wild western with Irish descent??? Love the show and have not missed one nor the reruns! Please renew for another season!

  • ffroggy5

    hope Copper is renewed I love the show

  • Lisa Rey

    I can’t stand to see Season One end, but have great hope that there will be a Season Two. It would be unthinkable for the t.v. world to be denied more of this amazing, brilliant show!

  • D. Todd Miller

    I add my voice: PLEASE renew Copper for another season! I love this show!

  • vic

    Copper was just the start of my time watching BBC. Would be a shame not to see the show renewed..has made me take interest in other shows as well!

  • Eric Alan Weinstein

    BBCA, If you don’t renew the show, I’m going to round up the Dead Rabbits from all over the Five Points to give you a proper hiding you won’t soon forget!

  • Karen

    I love this show and can’t wait for the next two!

  • Henry Pridgen

    I think it as a total disgrace to the spirit of freedom to limit True English citizens the right to learning how America was truly developed .
