BBC releases Luther teaser; Ruth Wilson confirms return

Idris Elba fans sang from the rooftops when a fifth series of Luther was announced last year.

With four new episodes coming, the plot goes something like this:

As a series of monstrous killings becomes ever more audacious, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday are confounded by a tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an unspeakable horror.

But even as the case brings him closer than ever to the nature of true evil, a reluctant Luther must also face the ghosts of his own past. Striding back into the line of fire, he must choose who to protect… and who to sacrifice.

Whatever his next move, it will have devastating consequences for those around him – and will change John Luther forever.

Now the BBC has released a new teaser:

Elsewhere, actress Ruth Wilson, who plays nemesis/BFF Alice Morgan, confirmed that the character will be back.

She told the Independent:

“She is in it,” she told us, adding: “It’s not what you expect. She’s definitely back for a bit. [Alice is] back with a vengeance.”

With a new teaser out there, we tend to think Luther will be back sooner than we thought it might.
