The acclaimed, multi-award nominated show Luther is gearing up for a massive comeback this upcoming spring. The fate of Luther’s continuation had been in limbo for a few years due to BBC not releasing the show’s renewal status and Idris Elba announcing that he wasn’t returning for a sixth season. Despite the grey area, passionate fans have kept hope that the complicated but devoted detective would return to the screen in some fashion, especially since the idea of a movie adaptation has been floating around for some time. After a long-awaited return (and a few teasers from Elba), the Luther cinematic universe continues with a film adaptation, Luther: The Fallen Sun, premiering March 2023 on Netflix. In an EW exclusive, Elba and the film’s director Jamie Payne divulged more information about the plot for the upcoming feature.
