Line Of Duty Season Seven 'Is Happening' Telly Insider Claims

A seventh season of Line of Duty is on the cards, according to a TV insider.

The show was planned to bow out at the end of season six, after H's identity was finally revealed.

However, fans have been hopeful for a seventh season and now it seems as though they may get their wish.

Speaking to the Daily Star, an unnamed source revealed: "Another series is happening. This is the news millions of fans have been hoping for."

They added: "A lot of stuff still needs to be agreed and it is likely to take a while. Fans will probably have to wait a few years before it airs on TV."

And if creator Jed Mercurio is about to get working on a seventh season, the BBC has already revealed it would be welcomed back.

BBC drama chief Piers Wenger said: "Of course, we're all massive fans of the show - we'd like to see both of them return.

"Jed is thinking [about it] but I can't really say much more than that.

"He hasn't committed to writing either of them."

Star Martin Compston, who plays DSI Stephen Arnott, said he'd be up for reprising his role but only 'for the right reason' and not 'just for the sake of it'.

He said: "People want us to come back and that's amazing. But Jed will only come back and do more if he believes there is a story to tell.

"He won't come back just because we're getting bigger. He wouldn't do another series just for the sake of it. He writes everything for a reason."

"It means what we're doing is going well. And the fact that people want us to come back again means the world."

He went on to say that if a new season was to go ahead, viewers would have a bit of wait on their hands, explaining that it 'always takes a couple of years between series'.

But before we all get too excited, Mercurio has previously slapped down rumours of a seventh season.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast in August, he said: "If there was a way, we'd obviously look at that seriously.

"But, just being honest with you, right now we don't have a plan in place."
