For people like myself who followed the BBC series starring Idris Elba, Luther, you would like the News that he is going to return as Luther yet again. Its a bit like something what we’ve been expecting for a some time and while it is not the announcement of a Luther movie, BBC’s announcement that a 2 part Luther mini-series is scheduled for 2015 is quite the treat.
The exact date for this 2-part special is unknown at this time however it will all be reviewed quite soon and the most important thing at this point is that Luther is heading back to the big screen. Hopefully Alice will accompany him for this one as well.
Here’s how the BBC announced Luther’s return to the big screen.
Golden Globe®-winning and Emmy-nominated (and one of People’s Sexiest Man issue cover stars!) Idris Elba makes a welcome return to BBC AMERICA in 2015 to reprise his role of DCI John Luther, the murder detective whose brilliant mind can’t always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions.
When asked about the much-anticipated return of the hugely popular show, creator and writer Neil Cross said: “Ever since we said goodbye to John Luther on Southwark Bridge, there’s hardly been a minute when I didn’t wonder what happened next. So I decided to find out. We’re putting the band back together; Luther is coming back where he belongs. Back to the BBC. Back to London. And back to work.”
Luther will return as a two-part event special and will film in and around London in March and will premiere later next year on BBC AMERICA.
