The official synopsis for Luther 4 teases: “Luther’s back. Pitted against his most chilling adversary yet, haunted by the ghosts of his past and hell-bent on retribution, he’s drawn into a terrifyingly complex case that pushes him closer to the edge than he’s ever been.”

Idris Elba teased earlier this year that the two-part special is “explosive and definitely goes up a gear.”
