Ripper Street could return to television, despite apparently being axed last week.
BBC One previously announced that the period thriller would not be returning for a third series, citing dwindling audience numbers.
However, the corporation is now in the early stages of a deal with LoveFilm to revive the series, The Guardian reports.
The deal would be for a third series and an option to order a fourth, with LoveFilm premiering the new episodes online and BBC One airing them shortly afterwards.
The BBC has confirmed to Digital Spy that while a deal is yet to be finalised, it is considering bringing back Ripper Street.
"The BBC is looking at partnerships that could enable Ripper Street to return but at better value to licence fee payers,” a spokesperson confirmed.

but it has been cancelled as far as I know, we don’t get a third series. Unless BBC change their mind :(
and it’s completely fine :) it’s usually dead quiet in this blog
No, I’ve only just read it now and finally I’m excited because they kinda made the whole preview look like a sequel to episode 6, but turns out it’s so not.
I’m really interested in how it works out too, because if - like it says there - Jackson’s brother is the irritating one, that means he’s even worse than Jackson and that’s something. :P
and uhhhh, the cancellation news are so bad, i still haven’t fully accepted them :(
