Luther Season 3 Sneak Peek: 'Your Conscience Has Killed More People Than I Have'

Bad guys, beware: John Luther is back in action.

This preview of Luther‘s long-awaited third season — which bows on BBC America Tuesday, September 3 at 10/9c — promises an intense batch of episodes starring the equally intense detective.

Explosions? Yes. Sirens? Yes. Tears? Yes. New love interest played by Resident Evil‘s Sienna Guillory? Yes. Luther dangling some guy over the side of a building? Yes (and gulp!). Alice? Heck yes.

  • I love it, but cmon, 3rd season? No, this is the 3rd installment of the 1st season. What is up with these 4 episode chunks? Cmon guys, put a real season together, this show is terrific, stop treating it like a mini series.

    • Rumor is that it’s just that hard to get the cast together to do a full season. That’s why Idris has been pushing hard for a Luther movie (which I hope happens, BTW)….

  • Anxiously awaiting this new mini-season of Luther. Imo, Luther stands with Orphan Black and Doctor Who as the top three shows on BBCA. The harder question for me is: What is the order of the top 3 ?

  • Idris & Ruth’s chemistry is off the charts! ONLY 6 episodes and a movie left. Boo!

  • We’ve never made series (seasons) longer than about 13 episodes, unlike the US where 22 can be considered the norm.

    I suppose that sometimes, less is more.

  • LOVE this show!!! I can not wait for its return. I do wish the seasons were longer!!!

  • i LOVE this series…and the idea of alice the sociopath as somewhat of a guardian angel was really an amazing idea…while i wish the seasons were a bit longer….i’ll suffer, since they really bring it…and if longer means they cant, then it is what it is.

    while i am a very red-blooded american, i will always humbly bow to the brits when it comes to entertainment…raising my china to them!
