BBC America Orders 2nd Season of COPPER

Earlier today, BBC America announced they are bringing back COPPER, the channel’s first original drama.

Perry Simon, General Manager, Channels, BBC Worldwide America said: “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.”

Season two will consist of thirteen episodes, three more than season one. The season one finale is this Sunday at 10 pm EST.
