The famous TV detective has a new home on Netflix. Instead of a new series, he will come back in 2023 with a movie called The Fallen Sun. In 2019, the fifth season of Luther aired on BBC One. When it was over, Idris Elba’s grey-coated cop was arrested for murder.
His long-time psychopathic enemy Alice, played by Ruth Wilson, was last seen falling off a high building. The Fallen Sun will pick up after the events of season 5, but Elba and writer Neil Cross haven’t said much about the long-awaited movie.
Here’s what we know so far about Luther Season 6.

Anticipating the Plot of Luther Season 6
The movie will be a “epic continuation of the award-winning television saga,” according to Netflix. They have verified that while disgraced detective John Luther is imprisoned, another serial killer will terrorise London.
Luther chooses to escape prison to complete the mission and apprehend a cyber-psychopath who has been teasing him because he is haunted by his past mistakes.
Elba said in a 2022 interview with Sirius XM:
“I just finished filming about three weeks ago, it was a grim shoot. Oh my gosh.”
“I’m reading the script and then, ‘He does what? Wow, this is incredible!’ And then I’m actually doing it. I find myself freezing in some dark cave or something, but no spoilers.”
“If you watch the last season, it picks up after that. But for new audiences that haven’t seen it, I think the film is a whole story.”
“Even if you don’t know Luther, who he is, or anything about him, the film attempts to be whole for a new audience.”
