Idris Elba To Return As Luther In Two-Part Miniseries

BBC America surprised everyone by announcing that Pacific Rim star Idris Elba will return to the role of DCI John Luther in an upcoming, two-part Luther special event which will air on The BBC and BBC America!

“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,” admitted creator and writer Neil Cross said. “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.”

Elba is truly a fan-favorite and has been rumored for a number of major recent roles – including that of James Bond. He’s going to be a busy dude as he will appear in  five films over the next thirteen months, including Avengers: Age of UltronThe Jungle Book and Finding Dory.

In other Luther news, Fox announced that they will remake Luther on TV for American audiences. Unfortunately Elba will not star.
