‘Luther’ will return for two-part special in 2015

BBC One has confirmed that Luther will be back next year for two new 60-minute episodes.

Idris Elba will return as murder detective DCI John Luther in the special story, written by the crime drama’s creator, Neil Cross.

Cross commented: “Ever since we said goodbye to John Luther on Southwark Bridge, there’s hardly been a minute when I didn’t wonder what happened next. So I decided to find out.”

He added: “We’re putting the band back together; Luther is coming back where he belongs. Back to the BBC. Back to London. And back to work.”

Filming will begin in and around London in March 2015.
