In news that was a surprise to me, Copper has been cancelled by BBC America. What was to be the season 2 finale on Sunday will now be the series finale.
I had high hopes for this show after it set a ratings record for BBC America but the fans just didn’t stay with the show as the seasons progressed. Season 2 saw the addition of Donal Logue and Alfre Woodard to the cast but even their addition didn’t do much to add viewers.
I was a fan of this show. I thought it was an interesting idea to have a cop show set at the very beginning of the homicide detective unit of the NYPD. The stories were interesting and fresh and the acting was very good. I think America has made a mistake letting this show go but what do I know? America loves crap like CSI so really, Copper never stood a chance.
