Idris Elba Returns In New Series Of 'Luther'

Hold on to your hats, your favourite TV detective is BACK!


Despite earlier reports that we had seen the last of the popular BBC series 'Luther', fans of the hit show will be pleased to hear that Idris Elba will be flinging on his scruffy trench coat once more to play John Luther for a FIFTH series!


One of the show's writer's Neil Cross confirmed the news to Digital Spy, saying, “it can't be over, can it? There's so much we don't know. So much unfinished business.”


The last series aired in Christmas 2015 leaving fans in suspense with it's intricate storylines and rumours of a possible movie in the works. The BBC are rewarding us 'Luther' fans with FOUR episodes this season, instead of the usual three. Aren't they generous.


Speaking on the return of the new series 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.”


Filming will commence early next year.


Idris said, "I look forward to putting the coat back on."


Neither can we Elba!
