First Footage From “Luther” Season 5

First Footage From Luther Season 5

Many have been waiting to see anything from the upcoming fifth season of The BBC’s “Luther” which was announced over a year ago and has long been on the cards to debut sometime this year.

To date, there’s been no promo materials of any kind, nor any word of a specific release date. That finally changed today in an odd way with The BBC releasing a single two-minute clip on social media (hence the bad aspect ratio) from the upcoming episodes.

Idris Elba reprises his iconic role for the new episodes which will once again be a full season of four episodes (not two like the fourth season). Also returning are showrunner Neil Cross and Ruth Wilson will be back as Alice despite talk of the character’s apparent death last season.
