‘Luther’ creator rules out Series 4: ‘The show’s finished’

Luther writer Neil Cross has revealed that the crime drama will not return to TV screens.

Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival about the possibility of a fourth series on BBC One, Cross commented: “There is none. The show’s finished. Idris [Elba], as he should be, he’s gone on to be a big movie star.”

However, he confirmed previous rumours of a big-screen outing: “I think there will be a Luther movie – that’s the plan.”

Series 3 concluded last month on BBC One and Cross’s new NBC pirate adventure series Crossbones begins filming next month, starring John Malkovich as Blackbeard.
