At a special event in London in November, the BBC announced it's new drama programs for 2015, including an "event special" of Luther to air on BBC One.

Idris Elba will reprise the role of John Luther for two hour-long episodes, but there has been no word if Ruth Wilson, who currently stars in Showtime's The Affair, will return as Alice Morgan.

Filming will being in March and will air on BBC One in late 2015.

"Ever since we said goodbye to John Luther on Southwark Bridge, there's hardly been a minute when I didn't wonder what happened next. So I decided to find out. We're putting the band back together; Luther is coming back where he belongs. Back to the BBC. Back to London. And back to work."

says Creator Neil Cross.

In some VERY unfortunate news: FOX has apparently ordered a pilot for a US remake of Luther. I'm sure it will turn out just as well as their other UK remakes!


Are you excited for a Luther mini-series?
