With the new Luther Season 5 trailer hitting the internet, the first question that comes to any fan’s mind is, when is the fifth season of Luther coming to Netflix? Well, don’t worry, that is what we are going to be talking about in today’s post. The fourth season of Luther series premiered on December 15, 2015, that was nearly 3 years ago. Luther Season 5 filming has already begun, and we have a rough guess on the release date and that might just be true, we also have details on the cast.
Luther Season 5
Idris Elba will be joined by Dermot Crowley (DSU Martin Schenk), Michael Smiley (Benny Silver), and Patrick Malahide for the Luther Season 5. There will also be the addition of Wunmi Mosaku and she will be returning to play the role of DS Catherine Halliday. She is replacing DS Emma Lane (Rose Leslie), who is not expected to return. Also, Alice will be making a comeback, and it seems that it won’t be a minor role.
The fourth season of Luther, which was released on December 15, 2015, was pretty short, and it consisted of a total of two episodes. Luther Season 3 had a total of four episodes and it took them roughly eight months to film that, and if we take that into the account for Season 5, which is already in the production. We might be getting Luther Season 5 by the end of 2018, most likely in November or December.
Luther Season 5 Episodes
The first season of Luther had six episodes, while season 4 had 2 episodes due to lack of cast availability and time. However, we have confirmed episode count for Luther Season 5, next season will have a total of four episodes.
