Idris Elba drops big hint about the future of Luther


Idris Elba has hinted that he might make another series of Luther.

The British actor starred as DCI John Luther in the detective series from 2010 until it ended with a two-part fourth series in 2015.

But he has now suggested during a Twitter Q&A that the award-winning BBC One programme could return for a fifth run.

A fan asked the actor: "@idriselba what's the chance of a new series of Luther?"

And the 43-year-old replied:

There has previously been speculation that the crime drama will return and earlier this year Idris admitted there had "been some thought" about the possibility of more episodes.

A film version of the series is also thought to be in the pipeline.
