Watching the trailer for Luther‘s newest
series season, you’d never know that Idris Elba is having the biggest summer of his career, starring in Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. Indeed, he’s slipped right back into the skin of the best, most unstable detective in Britain. (How do someone’s shoulders convey so much emotion?)
Though the show has been awash with buzz since premiering in 2010, it’s actually been off the air since 2011. What’s happened since? New killer(s) on the loose, of course. Luther, still unraveling, of course. And Ruth Wilson’s Alice — she’s back, y’all, and she’s waving at us.
Check it out below:
Luther will air in the U.S. as a four-night mini series Sept. 3-6 at 10 p.m. on BBC America.
