Luther season four wrapped up in early 2016 and we waited patiently for a year and a half for news of a possible season five.

That came last Summer when the BBC confirmed that Idris Elba would once again don the grey coat for four new episodes. 

And yesterday, we got our first peak at Elba back in action on set wrapping day one of filming. Two guesses what he's wearing... 

The BBC released an official synopsis of the upcoming series to get us excited, 

"When the moonless shadows of London give birth to a new nightmare, DCI John Luther must once again confront the depths of human depravity. As a series of monstrous killings becomes ever more audacious, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday are confounded by a tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an unspeakable horror.

"But even as the case brings him closer than ever to the nature of true evil, a reluctant Luther must also face the ghosts of his own past. Striding back into the line of fire, he must choose who to protect… and who to sacrifice. Whatever his next move, it will have devastating consequences for those around him — and change John Luther forever."

We've no release date yet but Luther will definitely return to BBC One before the end of the year. 

Time to binge the old seasons on Netflix until he's back!
