Line of Duty could be back sooner than expected

We need our fix of bent coppers.

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.


The show has continually gathered steam, and its fandom seemed to reach its peak in 2019 after the series was uploaded to Netflix.

Now, creator of the show Jed Mercurio has said the sixth season of the show could drop in 2020, having only finished in May of this year.

"I would hope it's sometime in 2020, next year. But that's not something that we're able to confirm," he told Radio Times.

As for getting started on production, he said: "That's something that we have at the planning stage, so we are working towards a date. We can't confirm everything until things are in place."

Last time around, Mercurio took time off the crime drama to work on The Bodyguard, starring Richard Madden, but it doesn't seem like there are any other projects to get in the way this time.

Typically, seasons of the show have started in March, so if production hasn't begun but 2020 is the aim, we could be looking at season dropping later in the year. All we know is that we're ready for it.
