Luther: Idris Elba to return for a fifth series

Luther: Idris Elba to return for a fifth series

Luther admirers can be extremely happy with that fact that incomparable Idris Elba is back to the work. The fifth season of the British TV series soon will be ready to watch.

The prayers of Elba’s fans have been answered, their idol Idris with his the husky voice is returning to work under the Season 5. The detective drama is going on, don’t miss the release day.

Frankly speaking, the fifth season as under question rather long time, the crime drama was last on screens in December 2015, although Elba reprised the role for a Sport Relief sketch last March.

Idris Elba will once again don his tweed coat for the four-part season, which has been described as “utterly heart-stopping and unmissable”. Filming will begin on the new series early next year. After the fourth series, there had been hopes it would live on as a big screen version, but a film never materialised.

Here is the trailer, enjoy!

Co-creator and writer Neil Cross said:

“It’s a question Idris and I get asked a lot. What happened to John Luther after we last saw him striding unbowed through the streets of his city, his blood red London?”

Elba cleared the situation very fast and in professional manner. The husky-voiced actor just 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.”

During the pause, Idris Elba was working on another project, the actor played ex-champion in drama ‘100 streets’ with a very sad final.
