Idris Elba Is Back on the Edge in New ‘Luther’ Trailer (Video)

Two-part BBC One special to air Dec. 15

Idris Elba is back to bend the law some more in a new trailer for the upcoming “Luther” two-part special.

John Luther (Elba) must return to action when a madman begins terrorizing London. Luther is the only man who can stop him, but will his violent nature and disregard of authority cost him everything?

Elba first starred as the rogue detective back in 2010, with the show running for three seasons. The new two-part special will also star “Game of Thrones” alum Rose Leslie, Laura Haddock, Darren Boyd, and John Heffernan. The special was written series creator Neil Cross and directed by Sam Miller.

“Luther” is a BBC In-House Drama Production and BBC America co-production distributed by BBC Worldwide.

Idris Elba returns as “Luther” on Dec. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America.
