The reason this concluded is such a load of crap. Writes claimed they had no more story to tell, however, they end the series on a cliff hanger that completely opened a whole new door to explore for an entire new season. Seems like they just got bored with having to write for it. Turds.
This was a breath of fresh air compared to all the modern cop shows and I loved New York 1864, it was a brilliant setting and the show was fascinating for the use of the old school tactics of breaking down murder cases and whatnot.
With and intense, yet relatively steady storyline, intricate characters and beautifully dark cinematography- this was one of my favorite shows. I was disappointed by how many questions were left unanswered by the abrupt conclusion to the show and that is what docked the full 5 star rating from me. However the show itself is worth every pistol-wielding, opium-guzzling minute and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys action-packed period dramas.
