What to expect from the Season 6 premiere of “Line of Duty”?

There is no special title for the first episode of “Line of Duty” Season 6 just like its episodes from the previous seasons. However, we have some spoilers for the premiere episode. At the end of Season 5, we came to know that ‘H’ was actually four people and not just one person. However, as of now, only three people have been exposed. So, we have our doubts that the fourth person could be Hastings which might be revealed in the upcoming episode. Even though he was exonerated in the end for the crimes that he had committed, there is a possibility that he might be the last one. So, the actual identity of ‘H’ might be resolved in the upcoming episode. BBC has released a trailer for “Line of Duty” Season 6 on their official YouTube channel.
