About Luther Season 5
Golden Globe® winner Idris Elba (Hobbs & Shaw) returns to his iconic role as DCI John Luther – a self-destructive near-genius detective on the edge of law enforcement – once again starring opposite Ruth Wilson (The Affair) who reprises her role as the beautiful, extraordinarily intelligent and dangerous Alice Morgan.
In the all-new season, a fresh spate of nightmarish murders brings DCI John Luther to once again face the depths of human depravity on the streets of London. While the monstrous and seemingly indiscriminate killings become ever more audacious and public, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday (Wunmi Mosaku) are confounded by a complex tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an untouchable corruption. As the body count rises, and gangster George Cornelius (Patrick Malahide) applies his own pressure, can Luther catch a killer and save his own neck?
Luther is produced by BBC Studios and co-produced with BBC AMERICA. Executive producers are Idris Elba for Green Door Pictures, Neil Cross, Marcus Wilson and Hilary Salmon for BBC Studios and Elizabeth Kilgarriff for the BBC, producer is Derek Ritchie and director is Jamie Payne.
