One of our favorite crime dramas is coming back for another season. According to a Variety  interview with show creator Neil Cross, BBC’s breakout hit, “Luther,” will be back for a third heart-pounding season.

The show stars Idris Elba as a police detective who will do just about anything to catch some of London’s worst criminals. Elba’s portrayal of John Luther leaves viewers riveted as they watch him straddle the line of what is and is not legal to catch his prey.

“Luther” is not only action-packed, but it’s also extremely well-written and well-acted. It’s been a hit on both sides of the pond and series creator Neil Cross says it might be coming to the big screen.

Variety reports:

Fans of “Luther” will be happy to know that work on the third series has already begun, though Cross hints that it will probably be its last. “Idris (Elba) is a busy man.”

Signs look good, however, that it won’t be the last time audiences see the character. “There’s a strong possibility there will be a ‘Luther’ movie in the near future,” says Cross

Although I’m sad that this may be the third and final season of “Luther,” lets keep our fingers cross that Cross and Elba can bring this fabulous show to the big screen.

    You’re in luck, Trini. They have it on Netflix- at least the first season on there. I’ve been meaning to watch it, but I’m still hooked on “Mad Men”, LOL!

  • Mr. Man

    On Netflix now? Ok I’ll check it out now that my family and I just finished all seasons of Lincoln Heights, (one of the absolute best African American family shows this side of 2000)…

  • Trini

    What?!! When did this happen? I checked not too long ago and didnt see it! I’ll be on that asap. Thanks for the heads up!


    I breezed thru Mad Men in no time flat. Love that show.

  • Perverted Alchemist

    Netflix just added the series about a month ago, around the same time they added “The Walking Dead” and “The Cleveland Show”. I might just go and watch “Luther” right now being that everyone’s been talking about that show.

  • Jai

    Yes, I would definitely see the film but I’d like to see a few more seasons first.

  • Cali

    YESSSSSSSSS! Loved seasons 1 & 2, looking forward to all the rest!

  • B

    No, it’s not bad: I also want Alice and Luther to work out. I’m sort of addicted to Alice’s character – and Idris and that actress have amazing chemistry.

    He’s the Irish (semi-rookie) cop/sidekick in the show. I find him adorable. But I have a soft-spot for Irish accents.
