Great news for all Luther fans across the globe. Idris Elba will make a return to our screens for another instalment of the show, BBC America announced Monday.
Season 5, which will begin production early next year, has yet to release a premiere date.
Luther follows the trials and tribulations of DCI John Luther. It is written and created by Neil Cross.
In a statement he ensured fans the new series will surprise people:
Now what? It’s a question Idris and I get asked a lot. What happened to John Luther after we last saw I’m 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. Because we love John and wonder what he’s up to. And as for me, I’m scared of the monsters. The face at the window. The hand under the bed. The shadow at the end of the street. Who’s going to stop them, if not John Luther?
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. Now what? Luther’s coming back. That’s what.
Idris Elba said:
Neil, the BBC and I have been talking about a further season and I am thrilled that we have been able to bring it all together. I look forward to putting the coat back on.
This is gonna be sick.
