Line of Duty has long been renewed for Series 4 (expected to air in 2017), but what about Series 5 and the overall endgame?
Speaking to Digital Spy, writer Jed Mercurio confirmed his intention to continue Line of Duty into a fifth chapter, noting that he has no desire to end the police drama any time soon:
I hope so. I certainly hope so. I really love being part of it and it’s great to be involved in a series that gets such a fantastic response from [casual] viewers and fans alike, so I’m certainly not inclined to stop doing Line of Duty – but in the end, it’s not my decision, it’s down to whether the BBC commissions further series.
Stay tuned as we monitor the status of Line of Duty Series 5…
