Line of Duty creator gives update on season 6
Jed Mercurio has said he wants to make sure filming is completed by Christmas.
Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio has given an update on the filming of its sixth season.
The BBC decided to shut down production on the upcoming seasons of both Line of Duty and gangster drama Peaky Blinders back in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The cast of the acclaimed police procedural took part in a virtual live Q&A last night after the first series began airing again on BBC One.
When asked about when filming would resume, Mercurio didn’t reveal a specific date but did state that he’d like to have everything done by Christmas.
We do [know the date]," he said to the Radio Times.
"There are a few things to figure out, but we're working towards a day... I know a date has been talked about in the press, but as usual they got it wrong."
“We'd love to be on air next year, so we really have to make sure we complete our filming before Christmas.”
Line of Duty follows the officers of AC-12, DS Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), DI Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Superintendent Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), as they attempt to unravel a far-reaching web of corruption within the force.
It was announced earlier in the year that Kelly Macdonald will play this series guest lead DCI Joanne Davidson, the senior officer working on a high-profile murder case whose conduct raises AC-12’s suspicions.
You can stream all five seasons of Line of Duty on Netflix now.
