Luther Season/Series 5 is coming soon.
Speaking to Deadline, series creator Neil Cross revealed that production on the fifth season of the British crime drama begins January 2018:
I delivered the final episode of Luther series five about an hour before leaving for the airport [to head to London for the Hard Sun premiere]. We’re in prep right now and we’re doing a bit of casting and we start shooting in January. For some reason, I always seem to shoot in the depths of winter.
Could Luther extend his run into a sixth season? Cross believes the story could continue beyond Season 5 in “some iteration,” with the long-mooted movie spinoff “absolutely” possible:
The fact is that Idris and I are bound in this shared relationship with this character and every TV [season] we think it’s going to be the end, not least because Idris is a very busy and has a successful career but we always miss him when it’s over and then I start coming up with ideas and we always come back for more. For no other reason than we love doing it. Hopefully in some incarnation, the character will continue.
Luther Season 5 is slated to premiere in 2018.
Stay tuned as we monitor the cancel/renew status of
Luther Season 6 and the potential movie spinoff…
