Luther to return
idris elba to reprise his role as the reckless detective for a fifth series
it’s been two-and-a-half years since we last saw detective John luther, but idris elba is to don the character’s tweed overcoat once more because Bbc1’s award-winning gritty crime drama Luther is returning for a four-part series.
‘i’m thrilled that we’ve been able to bring it all together,’ says idris. ‘i look forward to putting the coat back on.’
the new fifth series will begin filming early next year. ‘what happened to John luther after we last saw him striding unbowed through the streets of london? there’s so much unfinished business,’ teases the drama’s creator and writer neil cross.
