Idris Elba Is Back for Season 5 of Luther

Idris Elba as ‘Luther’ is Back for Season 5

After three years, Luther is back. With a newly released trailer, Idris Elba returns to his iconic role as Detective John Luther on BBC’s favorite crime drama.

Luther is back to his old antics. A killer is on the loose, and Luther is called in to put a stop to it.

According to Deadline, the synopsis for season 5 goes like this:

When the moonless shadows of London give birth to a nightmare, DCI John Luther is once more called to immerse himself in the deepest depth of human depravity. While the monstrous and seemingly indiscriminate killings become more audacious and public, Luther and new recruit DS Catherine Halliday are confounded by a complex tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an untouchable corruption. But even as the case brings him closer than ever to the true face of evil, a reluctant Luther forced to confront the unburied demons of his own recent past. Striding back into the line of fire, he must choose who to protect and who to sacrifice. His next move will have devastating consequences for those around him — and change him forever.

Elba has earned Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie in 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2016.
