Luther Season 4 First Look: Idris Elba's Anti-Hero Helps Hide a Suspect?

Don’t expect a sudden shift to by-the-book detective work when Luther returns to BBC America for Season 4.

In the following first-look photo, Idris Elba’s titular detective appears to be playing fairly rough with a possible suspect — or perhaps it’s an uncooperative witness? — gently guiding forcibly dragging him out of a building with his fancy suit jacket pulled over his head.

BBC America also offers a tease about the two-part miniseries continuation of the Emmy-nominated, London-set crime drama: “Luther’s back. Pitted against his most chilling adversary yet, haunted by the ghosts of his past and hell-bent on retribution, he’s drawn into a terrifyingly complex case that pushes him closer to the edge than he’s ever been.”

Written and created by Neil Cross and directed by Sam Miller (No Good Deed) the Luther special will also star Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy), Darren Boyd (Fortitude, Spy), John Heffernan (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell) and Patrick Malahide (Game of Thrones), with Michael Smiley and Dermot Crowley returning as Benny Silver and DSU Martin Schenk respectively.
