‘Luther’ Series 5: Idris Elba Hints That New Episodes Could Be On Their Way


Idris Elba has hinted that more episodes of ‘Luther’ could be on our screens in the coming years, following the success of the two-episode season four.

Fans were delighted to see Idris back as the troubled detective for the episodes, which aired over Christmas, but understandably, it simply wasn’t a big enough fix.

Now, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Idris has revealed that talks about the future of the show have taken place.

Sounds ominous doesn’t it?

Prior to the fourth series, there was talk of a film, and back in 2013, the show’s writer, Neil Cross, stated that a prequel movie had been written.

Speaking at the Edinburgh Television Festival, he said: “I’ve written the script and we hope to get the film made next year. Idris is a brilliant leading man and we’ve hoped to turn ‘Luther’ into a movie for a long time.”

Sadly, the plans never came to fruition, but could they possibly be revisiting the project? Watch this space…
