'Luther' Renewed For Season 5


BBC America announced this week that Luther will be returning for a fifth season. Four new episodes of the British crime drama have been ordered, with production set to kick off in early 2018.
The critically-acclaimed series follows John Luther, a Detective Chief Inspector for the Serious and Serial Crime Unit. His dedicated and obsessive nature leaves him unable to prevent himself from being consumed by the darkness of the crimes he deals with on a daily basis.
While no premiere date for Season 5 has been announced, a return sometime next year appears likely. The upcoming episodes will be the first new season of Luther in over two years.
