Idris Elba is set to reprise his role as everyone’s favourite homicide detective John Luther with a new four-part 5th season of Luther.
Series creator Neil Cross will also be returning and production is set to begin early next. Cross said he and Elba decided there was a great deal of “unfinished business” for the character to tackle in a new batch of episodes:
“Because we love John and wonder what he’s up to, 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.”
Elba added “I am thrilled that we have been able to bring it all together. I look forward to putting the coat back on.”
