Season six of Line of Duty has been confirmed for 2020.

It comes as the BBC released its trailer for shows coming up this year - you can watch above - which included a shot of Vicky McClure's Kate Fleming looking over her shoulder, pensively.

As well as Line of Duty, the teaser also shows brief clips from Killing Eve and a new adaptation of Malorie Blackman's teen novel Noughts + Crosses.

This comes just a couple of weeks after Martin Compston teased fans with a sneak peek of the script for season six, and while it's not giving much away, it's certainly succeeded in getting us all excited for the next instalment.

Sharing a photo of the script for the first episode, Compston wrote on social media: "Guys... I'm scared."

He also shared a second photo on his Instagram Stories, joking: "Don't look directly at it."

A date has yet to be confirmed for the gripping cop drama, but it as well as the familiar faces of Compston and McClure, it will also see Trainspotting actor Kelly Macdonald star as guest lead for the new series.

She'll be playing Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson, the 'senior investigating officer of an unsolved murder, whose unconventional conduct raises suspicions at AC-12'.

Line of Duty writer and showrunner Jed Mercurio said: "We're honoured that Kelly Macdonald will join Martin, Vicky and Adrian in series six of Line Of Duty. DCI Joanne Davidson will prove the most enigmatic adversary AC-12 have ever faced."

The end of the last series divided opinion among fans, who had believed they would finally uncover the true identity of criminal mastermind 'H'.

But it turned out that he/she didn't actually exist, at least, not as we had thought. Rather than an initial, 'H' was just a clue to the real people behind it all.

DS Steve Arnott makes the incredible discovery when he spots something strange in Dot's dying declaration, which no one had seen before.

The eagle-eyed detective sees Dot tap his finger and thumb together four times - 'H' in Morse code - which, rather than pointing to a single person, is trying to tell them there are in fact four caddies - Dot, Hilton, Gill Biggeloe and, as we find out at the very end, Ryan Pilkington, the youngest member of the the OCG.

But with the way this show goes, who knows, maybe that was just a red herring.

The good thing is that it doesn't seem will have too long to wait to find out.
