Created by three-time Emmy Award-winner Tom Fontana, Academy Award-nominee Will Rokos, and executive produced by Barry Levinson, BBC AMERICA's highest-rated original drama series returns for a second season. Veteran actor Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy, Max Payne) joins the COPPER cast this season as a General who has recently returned from the battlefields of the Civil War to his station in Five Points.
The political boss of the Sixth Ward is reasserting himself as one of the most influential and powerful men in the city's political machine. Meanwhile, Detective Kevin Corcoran struggles to keep the untamed, post-war city in line while dealing with the horrible truth about what happened to his wife and child - and his best friend's betrayal. As he attempts to rebuild his life, those around him strive to find their place in the American saga - be it for good or evil.
