BBC’s LUTHER to return in 2015

BBC America has announced that Idris Elba’s troubled, but brilliant DCI John Luther will be returning in late 2015.

LUTHER’s return will consist of 2 sixty minute episodes, with filming taking place in March.

Golden Globe®-winner Idris Elba stars in the two-part event from award-winning creator Neil Cross

The highly acclaimed London set crime mini-series is written and created by award-winning and Emmy-nominated writer Neil Cross. Luther is made by BBC Drama Production, co-produced with BBC AMERICA.

When asked about the much anticipated return of the hugely popular show, Cross said: “Ever since we said goodbye to John Luther on Southwark Bridge, there’s hardly been a minute when I didn’t wonder what happened next. So I decided to find out. We’re putting the band back together; Luther is coming back where he belongs. Back to the BBC. Back to London. And back to work.”

I am a huge fan of Elba’s Luther and squeal when Alice appears, but each series has, in my opinion, been weaker than the last. Series three was one that I won’t ever revisit. It was great seeing Alice return, but the writing was quite weak. I hope Cross steps up his game and gives fans something special.
