Each season of Line Of Duty focuses on a guest actor.
And Macdonald will follow in the footsteps of Stephen Graham, Thandie Newton and Keeley Hawes.
The show's reoccurring stars Martin Compston, Adrian Dunbar, Vicky McClure and writer creator Jed Mercurio met with Macdonald for a dinner last week.
Mercurio tweeted a photo of the four, 'nervously awaiting' the arrival of their secret guest, 'stars'.

Yes, Mercurio did write, 'stars' - plural!
So maybe there are more secrets to be revealed?
Line Of Duty season 6 will begin filming early next year.
Season 1 of the show aired in June with all other seasons airing in February or March so maybe we can expect another spring release date...
Kelly Macdonald has appeared in a number of movies and TV shows.
She's perhaps best know for her role in Trainspotting and has worked on Nanny McPhee, No Country For Old Men and Homes & Watson.
She's had roles in lots of TV shows including Boardwlk Empire, The Victim, and Giri/Haji.
Mercurio described Macdonald's Line Of Duty character as, 'AC-12’s most enigmatic adversary yet.'
