“After 23 episodes, with Lincoln dead and the nation starting to heal, it seems a fitting moment to conclude this American story,” BBC America GM Perry Simon explained in a statement.
Simon added, “The opportunity to work with [executive producers] Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson, Will Rokos, Thomas Kelly and the extraordinary cast and crew on this journey is one that we are extremely proud of. Their vision to re-tell the immigrant experience through the melting pot of New York City was an original and fresh idea that melded well with the essence of BBC America’s programming.”
In Sunday’s final episode, “The Place I Called My Home,” Detective Kevin Corcoran, Robert Morehouse and Doctor Matthew Freeman — still reeling from Lincoln’s assassination — decide to join a national effort once more, spurring memories from the battlefield, bringing back faces from the past and creating opportunity for Five Points chaos to continue unabated.
