OK, it’s time already!!!! I’m having a Luther withdrawal!! See I am a certified fan! This is the time where I get all giddy about Luther. Fans already know, but this post is about for those who are not that “hip” about Luther, played by Idris Elba.
Early January, BBC America had announced that it will co-produce yet another series! The third installment of Luther, a Golden Globe was awarded to Idris Elba for his role.
This time it will be a four-part miniseries set to premiere as part of BBC America’s Dramaville. I don’t know the airdate yet; but as soon as I find out… I will definitely share!
Elba will display his role as the unethical, but brilliant detective and his team: Warren Brown (DS Justin Ripley), Dermot Crowley (DSU Martin Schenk) Nikki Amuka-Bird (DS Erin Gray), and Michael Smiley (Benny Silver) will be right there, partaking in the mayhem.
I remember when Luther first aired, it was stated it would not last; in fear of cancellation..dumped. Due to the fan base and the rippling story writing, it was not long it was global talk. Before you could blink an eye, talks were about would there be a 2nd installment and here we ALL are awaiting the 3rd installment impatiently. At least I am!!!
Now I am one of the people who loves a mystery, here in the States I am always watching the PBS’s for any detective series airing. I can see the John Luther character also quickly becoming one of their detective staples. This would be only well after BBC America has decided to syndicate the entire Luther series!
So don’t forget, BBC America’s new Dramaville franchise, it is said to become the home for groundbreaking British drama. So cheers to Neil Cross, a brilliant, brilliant writer. The executive producer Phillippa Giles for the upcoming 4th installment of Luther again in a four-part mini-series. Idris Elba will be co-producing the series too!
Congratulations once again on Elba’s 2011 Golden Globe award and Emmy nomination in 2011 , plus his second consecutive NAACP Image Award nomination for his John Luther performance. He has come a long way from ‘The Wire”, wishing him and his other cast members much success!
So what am I going to do while waiting for the series to begin. I going to plan a Luther fest at my house to watch Luther’s first and second series again. Then will I’ll be really ready for the 3rd series to begin! Neil Cross…..I can’t wait to find out the storylines!
