BBC America has announced that it will co-produce the third installment of Luther, the crime drama that recently won a Golden Globe for star Idris Elba. The four-part miniseries is set to premiere later this year as part of BBC America’s Dramaville.

 

Not only will Elba reprise his titular role as the brilliant but brooding detective, he’ll also be joined by his police team, which includes Warren Brown (DS Justin Ripley), Dermot Crowley (DSU Martin Schenk) Nikki Amuka-Bird (DS Erin Gray), and Michael Smiley (Benny Silver).

 

Perry Simon, General Manager of Channels for BBC Worldwide America, says, “His iconic role as John Luther has quickly become one of the most powerful detective characters television audiences have ever seen. Luther has been integral in establishing our new Dramaville franchise, the home for groundbreaking British drama. We’re excited to work once again with the incredibly talented writer Neil Cross and executive producer Phillippa Giles on this new ambitious four-part mini-series.”

 

In addition to his Golden Globe win last week and Emmy nomination in 2011, Elba recently received a second consecutive NAACP Image Award nomination for his performance. He won the award last year.
