Idris Elba is set to reprise his titular role on British procedural Luther with the BBC announcing a season 5 renewal.
Luther will be back for a four episode season with production set to start early next year.
“Because we love John and wonder what he’s up to,” Cross said. “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.”
Said Elba: “I am thrilled that we have been able to bring it all together. I look forward to putting the coat back on.”
Luther premiered back in 2010 with the last instalment back in December 2015 gaining Elba an Golden Globe Award for Lead Actor in a miniseries or movie.
