Idris Elba reveals season 5 trailer for 'Luther'

COMEBACK: Idris Elba

IDRIS ELBA has announced the return of British crime drama, Luther.

The British actor uploaded the first look of the season five trailer to his Twitter account, which he captioned “Luther is back!”

Giving little away, the 20-second clip presented the detective walking towards the camera with a bold red tagline that read, “This will hurt, Luther”.

The new season is expected to focus on a “new nightmare” which urges Luther to confront the “depths of human depravity”.

The official synopsis reads: “When the moonless shadows of London give birth to a new nightmare, DCI John Luther must once again confront the depths of human depravity.”

“As a series of monstrous killings becomes ever more audacious, Luther and new recruit DS 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.”

While Elba fans can only anticipate what’s in store for them next, he has reassured them that “we’re not reinventing the wheel. It’s classic Luther”.

The season will return to BBC1 later this year.
