About the series

Luther is a British psychological crime drama television series airing on BBC One since May 4, 2010. The series is created and written by Neil Cross and produced by BBC Drama Productions. The current fourth series consisted of two episodes that aired on December 15 and December 22, 2015.

Detective Chief Inspector Luther (Idris Elba) is a troubled genius detective working on the most complicated cases. He is deeply dedicated to his work, which is a double-sided coin, as he`s able to delve into the depths of the criminal minds, figure out the motivations behind the crimes and untangle the darkest and most complex knots but suffers deeply from his unwanted identification with the criminal. Throughout the first series he is assisted by Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson), a murderer who wasn`t arrested for lack of evidence.

Reviews, awards and renewal prognosis

Luther is a captivating drama series universally acclaimed by both critics and viewers, with an excellent 8.6 rating on IMDb. Idris Elba has been nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film for each of Luther`s series, and the 69th Golden Globe Awards finally brought him the well-deserved victory. The series as a whole was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award eight times. In a number of interviews Luther`s creators did not rule out a possibility of more series to come, and also expressed an interest in adapting Luther in a film format. BBC is also said to be interested in the project, so there almost certainly will be more Luther to come, the only questions are – when and which format.
