Idris Elba's Luther will return to BBC One for four new episodes
The multi-award winning drama will return to BBC One, with Idris Elba reprising his role as DCI John Luther.
Details of the latest series are being kept under wraps, but there's no doubt that it will be full of scary surprises.
Writer Neil Cross said: "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. 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?"
Idris Elba added: "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."
Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, also added: “Luther is one of BBC One’s most iconic dramas and we’re thrilled that Idris Elba is reprising his role as John Luther. Neil Cross’ plans for his return promise some big surprises for what will be an utterly heart stopping and unmissable fifth series.”
Luther will be shown on BBC One and will begin filming early next year.
