Announcing: Idris Elba returns to his iconic role as DI John Luther for the fifth installment of Luther, created by Emmy-nominated writer Neil Cross.

Dermot Crowley (Hard Sun), Michael Smiley (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Patrick Malahide (Game of Thrones) will return for the four-parter as DSU Martin Schenk, Benny Silver and George Cornelius; and BAFTA Award-winning actress Wunmi Mosaku (Black Mirror), will join as new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday.

Idris Elba says: “It’s good to be back in London, back in the coat.”

When the moonless shadows of London give birth to a new nightmare, DCI John Luther must once again confront the depths of human depravity.

As a series of monstrous killings becomes ever more audacious, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday are confounded by a tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an unspeakable horror.

But, even as the case brings him closer than ever to the nature of true evil, a reluctant Luther must also face the ghosts of his own past. Striding back into the line of fire, he must choose who to protect… and who to sacrifice.

Whatever his next move, it will have devastating consequences for those around him — and change John Luther forever.
