'Copper': Watch the first three minutes of the season 2 premiere here! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

When BBC America’s Copper wrapped up its first season last October, we left Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) in a pretty dark place. The Civil War-era New York police detective had just suffered betrayals from his wife and his best friend, and the last scene of the finale had Corcoran turning to drugs to deal with his despair.

Copper‘s sophomore season picks up four months later, a jump that new showrunner Thomas Kelly decided to take “to get a fresh start but not move ahead too far out so we wouldn’t have any drastic changes to explain.” The struggles Copper‘s characters faced at the end of season 1 are still present in their lives, but they’re also moving on — season 2 has a theme of reconstruction, both for individual characters and for America, as the Civil War comes to an end.

Below is an exclusive clip from the first few minutes of Copper‘s season 2 premiere, which starts off with a rare serene moment outside the city, but fair warning: It gets bloody and violent pretty quickly.

'Copper' earns its badge, gets second season

BBC America has renewed Copper, its freshman drama about a 19th-century New York City policeman. “Copper has proven to be a perfect fit for the channel,” said Perry Simon, BBC Worldwide America’s general manager of channels. “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.
