Last year, we heard that filming for the new series would begin in early 2018, and now our favourite Idris Elba has shared some exciting behind the scenes footage while they begin filming. Take a look here...

Alongside the video, Idris wrote: "It's good to be back in London, back in the coat. #Luther BBCone," oh it's so good to have you back too, Idris.

It won't just be us who feel that way, as the actor received critical acclaim for the role and has also been awarded a Critics' Choice Television Award, Golden Globe Award, NAACP Image Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award for his role in the drama.

Fans were quick to share their excitement, with one commenting: "Glad it's coming back, but can it be a full length series this time please? A couple of episodes just isn't enough! "

Another added: "Long overdue, great series! Always exciting to see a new Idris project! Mind you I saw an episode of AbFab with a very young Idris playing a Gigolo-That was funny!"

Luther continues to be one of the best shows of all time.

Remember our excitement when this trailer dropped?
