Copper was renewed for a second season of 13 episodes on October 17, 2012. Season 2 premiered on June 23, 2013 and ended on September 22, 2013.


Season 2 returns on the brink of Lincoln’s assassination – with shifts in politics and society altering the landscape for Irish immigrants and African-Americans. Detective Kevin Corcoran is struggling to tame the wartime metropolis while wrestling with personal demons, including the betrayal of his wife and best friend. When Tammany Hall’s outspoken General Brendan Donovan returns from the Civil War to restore law and order in the Sixth Ward, loyalties will be bought and sold both uptown and in the slums of the Five Points as Corcoran, and those around him, fight to find their places in an unforgiving city.
