The drama features Elba as Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. The series also stars Ruth Wilson, Dermot Crowley, and Michael Smiley.
After airing a two-episode fourth season in December, Elba says there may be more episodes in the future before a film adaptation is produced:
Without saying too much, I think TV audiences deserve a little bit more before we step onto the big silver screen. When and how and what that will feel like, we’re not sure yet. My instinct is it’ll be TV, but film is just definitely waiting in the wings.”
Little else has been revealed about the fifth season. Hopefully, it won’t take another three years!
What do you think? Are you a fan of Luther? What do you hope happens in the fifth season?
