'Luther' Series 3, Starring Idris Elba, To Begin Filming Next Month (VIDEO)

'Luther' and its star Idris Elba will return to TV with four new episodes, the BBC has confirmed.

Series three of the Emmy-nominated police drama will begin filming next month, and the broadcaster has made it official with a new video (above).

They promise that it will be "worth the wait" and "there will be four perfectly dark, chillingly-formed episodes."


The video also asks the question fans want answering - will villain and Luther's best sparring partner Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson), who's reportedly getting her own spinoff series, return? "Only Alice knows," is the answer.
