It’s been a long three years without our favorite brooding London detective, but the BBC just dropped its first trailer for the highly anticipated return of its award-winning detective series, Luther. Our hero, DCI John Luther (Idris Elba), seems as on edge and broody as ever, and that can only be good news for diehard fans.
(Some spoilers for first four seasons below.)
Luther has earned critical raves and built up a solid following since it first debuted on BBC One in 2010, and it has been one of the top-rated shows on BBC America, along with Doctor Who and Top Gear. Much of that is due to Elba’s powerhouse performance in the title role—easily his best work since he played Stringer Bell on The Wire.
