DCI John Luther could be back on the case.

During a recent Twitter Q&A, Luther star Idris Elba, who last appeared as the eponymous Luther during a two episode special that aired in December of 2015, revealed that there was a “big chance” there will be more episodes of the BBC One drama and that we should continue to monitor his Twitter account.

“Big chance. Watch this space,” Elba wrote in response to a fan who wanted to know if there was a possibility of getting a fifth season of Luther.

This isn’t the first time Elba has hinted that more episodes of the crime drama could be on the way.

When Elba was asked about the possibility of additional episodes of the series during a September 2014 Reddit AMA  (before the fourth season of Luther), the actor revealed plans for a potential Luther movie.

“We are in talks at the moment to figure out a way to bring more Luther back to the TV, but the focus is to try and make a film from it,” Elba said.

Whether it’s the small screen or the silver screen, the good news is that more Luther appears to be on the way.
