Idris Elba is back as oh-so troubled detective, John Luther.
That’s right, folks. The fifth season of Luther is finally on the way, around three years since season 4’s two parts hit screens. BBC has dropped a ‘sneak peak’ look at the upcoming season, unveiling a scene with Luther being questioned by some thugs. Gangster George Cornelius (Patrick Malahide, who played the character in season 4) wants to know the whereabouts of his son, and has a few volts and a potential bullet to make sure Luther isn’t involved. But hey, you know you can’t keep our man down for long.
The fifth season will also be bringing back Alice (Ruth Wilson). “It’s not what you expect,” Wilson confirmed to The Independent in February. “[Alice is] back with a vengeance.”
And now we wait with bated breath. Luther season 5, which will hold four episodes, will be arriving soon.
