Idris Elba Is Back With A Surprise In A New Trailer For Luther Season 5

Posted by at 11:59 am on November 29, 2018

BBC One has released the trailer and release date for upcoming episodes of Luther. This latest season looks to roust John Luther out of isolation one more time, this go-around complete with what appears to be the return of Ruth Wilson in the role of Luther’s deadly sometimes-helper Alice. In addition to Elba and Wilson, fellow series vets Dermot Crowley and Michael Smiley are also returning for this round of episodes.

Series creator Neil Cross, who’s written all previous 16 episodes of Luther, was also behind Hard Sun, which premiered on Hulu earlier this year. Regardless of how this impending season wraps up, Cross said in an interview earlier this year that a feature film ending to the Luther story still has a shot.

At the very least, this trailer delivers on everything Luther fans have come to expect: moody, smoky-voiced pop songs (this time, a brooding cover of Britney Spears’ Toxic) and putting its title character through every kind of danger imaginable. This season, he’s about to get punched more than a few times.

Watch the full trailer (including further proof that forests are dangerous places that never fare well for Neil Cross characters) below. Luther Season 5 is expected to premiere next year on BBC One. The series’ first four seasons are currently available to stream on Netflix.
