Idris Elba is to return to our screens as the enigmatic detective 'Luther' this summer, the BBC have confirmed.
Whetting fans' hungry appetites for the Golden Globe-winning cop drama, the broadcaster posted a picture of a concerned-looking Elba atop a London building.
Case notes fly around him in the wind in the dark and stormy picture below:
By the looks of the photo below, murderer-turned-friend of Luther, Alice Morgan (played by Ruth Wilson), will also return for the new series, which follows on from the 2011 run.
Back in November, BBC One released a promo video for the new series which promised that the new series will be "worth the wait" and "there will be four perfectly dark, chillingly-formed episodes".
Since the popularity of Luther, Elba has been tipped to play the first black James Bond. He recently said of the rumour: "It would be an indication of change."
The British actor will star as former South African leader Nelson Mandela in the biopic, 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom' next.
