CONFIRMED: New series of Line of Duty will arrive in early 2021

Mother of God.

We have the news that all Line of Duty fans have been waiting impatiently for; the BBC has confirmed that Series 6 will premiere in March 2021.


It's pretty safe to say that the premiere of the new series will be one of the most anticipated TV moments of the year on these shores as fans get ready to engulf themselves in the wildly successful series following the anti-corruption police unit, AC-12.

Their number one goal? Get rid of bent coppers, no matter what it takes.

After a two-year wait between season 4 and season 5, Line of Duty fans have become accustomed to having patience with the BBC copper-crime drama.

Season 6 was originally commissioned back in 2017, but filming was disrupted earlier this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic with filming resuming in September.

Now, the BBC has confirmed the series will be making its way back to our screens before the end of march 2021.

"Returning favourites on TV in the period up to the end of March include His Dark Materials, Doctor Who, Line Of Duty and Call The Midwife, alongside Top Gear, Great British Sewing Bee, The Repair Shop, and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK," the BBC said in a statement.
