The latest series of Jed Mercurio's hit thriller is set a year and a half on from the events of series five, and will feature a brand new case for AC-12, focused on an enigmatic Detective Chief Inspector. This already sounds a treat.
Kelly Macdonald has been announced as the DCI in question - Joanne Davidson - who is working as a senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case.
Arguably the best news of all is that the series leads, Vicky McClure, Martin Compston and Adrian Dunbar will all be returning.
Joining Line of Duty for the first time this series are Shalom Brune-Franklin (Our Girl, Cursed), Perry Fitzpatrick (This Is England, I Am Nicola), Andi Osho (Kiri, Curfew) and Prasanna Puwanarajah (Doctor Foster, Patrick Melrose).
Line of Duty is written and created by Jed Mercurio, and made for BBC One. The new series will be directed by Daniel Nettheim (Broadchurch, Doctor Who), Gareth Bryn (Hinterland, Last Tango in Halifax), and Jennie Darnell (Bodyguard, Hetty Feather), and the producer is Ken Horn (The Moorside, Line of Duty series five).
The new series of Line of Duty will premiere on BBC One later this year. All previous series are available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
