The two-episode fourth season aired on December 17, 2015, and now after a long drought, the fifth season is back for a four-episode run. It did better than ever in UK, but what kind of Nielsen ratings will it get in the US? If the BBC decides to make another installment for UK, will Luther be cancelled or renewed for season six on BBC America? Stay tuned.
A BBC America police drama, Luther season five stars Idris Elba, Ruth Wilson, Dermot Crowley, Michael Smiley, Patrick Malahide, Wunmi Mosaku, Enzo Cilenti, and Hermione Norris. In the fifth season, DCI John Luther (Elba) tackles another string of disturbing murders. He and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday (Mosaku) must unravel clues and separate fact from fiction to root out corruption. With the victims piling up and criminal George Cornelius (Malahide) turning up the heat, Luther must not only stop this killer but save himself, too.
