The crime drama will return with four more episodes.
June 13, 2017
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.

" I never seen this show, and now that I know that all they could muster was a two episode season for it's fans after a year of suspense, I never will see it!"
Yes- I copied and pasted PLOP's statement dated 6/15/2017 because of two reasons - I'm lazy and I could not better match PLOP's sentiments - Thank you MR. Plop... :-)

Idris is such a busy guy. That's why we only received 2 episodes last series. He is in that sweet spot in his career right now where opportunities are landing in his lap and he is a very adventurous spirit. Now that he has taken on film roles and some tv series and his boxing training etc. He has more time to commit to Luther. He definitely is one of those people who remembers his roots and what got him where he is. I am excited for this.

Thrilled to see it, but Ditto to Pope! Perhaps they should just call it a mini-series - especially the last season with only 2 episodes. Still, I'll take it any way I can get so I'm happy to see 4 new episodes.
