Earlier this week BBC made it official that there WILL be a season 5 of their hit show ‘Luther’.
Read the official statement below:
Multi-award-winning crime drama series Luther will be returning to BBC One. The new four-part series written by Neil Cross and starring Idris Elba, who has received a Golden Globe and Sag Award for his performance in the role of John Luther, will start filming early next year.
With filming set to begin early next year, fans should expect season 5 to release autumn/fall 2018 or early 2019. It will consist of 4 episodes.
Writer/creator Neil Cross is incredibly excited for the return, he said:
“It’s a question Idris and I get asked a lot. What happened to John Luther after we last saw him striding unbowed through the streets of his city, his blood red London?. It can’t be over, can it? There’s so much we don’t know. So much unfinished business. The thing is, we’ve been asking ourselves the same question. In the end, we picked up the phone to some old friends and asked if they’d like to find out what happens next. It turns out, they would. So that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to find out what happens next.”
Not seen ‘Luther’? Read the synopsis (Google): Luther is a brilliant but emotionally impulsive detective who is tormented by the dark side of humanity while hunting down murderers. Once the self-destructive detective knows the killer’s identity, it becomes a psychological duel between predator and prey.
So it’s official, Luther will be back on our screens for the first time since 2015!
