Idris Elba Returns For ‘Luther’ Four-Part Limited Series To Film In Early 2018

Multi-award-winning Luther will return to BBC AMERICA with a new four-part limited-series written and created by Neil Cross, and starring Idris Elba, who has received critical acclaim and a Golden Globe®, SAG and Critics’ Choice Award for his performance as DCI John Luther. Filming will commence early next year.

Writer Neil Cross, said: “Now what? 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? It can’t be over, can it? There’s so much we don’t know. So much unfinished business.

The thing is, we’ve been asking ourselves the same question. Because we love John and wonder what he’s up to. And as for me, I’m scared of the monsters. The face at the window. The hand under the bed. The shadow at the end of the street. Who’s going to stop them, if not John Luther?

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.

Now what? Luther’s coming back. That’s what.”

Idris Elba, says: “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.”

Sarah Barnett, President of BBC AMERICA, commented: “Luther is compulsive, unnerving television. Neil Cross, Idris Elba and the team are geniuses and we all wait with bated breath to see what happens next in this blindingly brilliant show.”
