Luther was officially picked up for a third series by BBC One in January - BBC America will co-produce the new episodes, which will once again see Elba appear alongside Warren Brown (Justin Ripley), Dermot Crowley (Schenk), Nikki Amuka-Bird (Erin Gray) and Michael Smiley (Benny Silver).

Series creator Neil Cross has expressed his desire to produce both a Luther movie and a spinoff show featuring the character of Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson) once the third series has aired.

Paul McGann - who played Mark North in the first two series of Luther - also voiced his desire to return to the drama in an interview with Digital Spy.

"I thought we'd lost Idris [Elba] to super-stardom!" McGann said earlier this year. "I know he won a Golden Globe... so I was thinking, 'We'll never get him back'. But no, I'd like to make more Luther - that was fun."
