Line of Duty may have come to an end more than a year ago, but that doesn't mean fans aren't eagerly awaiting to see if there will be another instalment of the corrupt police drama.

Stars Vicky McClure and Martin Compston have sparked fresh rumours that the BBC hit series might come back for a fresh season.
Speaking to Good Morning Britain, the acting pair teased fans that a new series might be coming soon.
Presenters Kate Garraway and Ben Sheppard quizzed the pair after a picture of them having drinks with fellow actor Adrian Dunbar and writer Jed Mercurio caught the attention of fans.
Martin and Vicky spoke ahead of going head-to-head in Soccer Aid, which takes place on Sunday (12 June).
At the beginning of the Good Morning Britain interview, Martin was also quizzed on whether the acting team and writer Jed would ever carry out their promise to get matching AC-12 tattoos. Martin replied: "Well, we did say if we ever got 12 million then we'd get AC-12...I think if we ever did another series then it's something that we'd all do together then."
When eager Kate asked if a new series was coming, Vicky was quick to shut down rumours: "Nothing planned, we just went out for a nice meal."
She added: "I'm telling the truth. Nothing planned, nothing set in stone. Like Martin said, we always have a long break in between series so this isn't unusual for us."
Martin added: "We're just chuffed that people still want us to come back. We've done 10 years now and the fact that people still want to see the show is amazing. If there's still a story then I'm sure Jed will bring us back."
As the presenters of Good Morning Britain continued to probe, they asked if Martin and Vicky would team up again with Adrian if writer Jed could be persuaded to write a new series. "We'd all go back, of course we would", said Vicky. "We adore working with each other, Jed's writing is phenomenal.
"We've been working together for over 10 years now, the last series was incredible with the response that we got but it was really tough to shoot within covid. It would be lovely to go back and end not on that kind of way."
Martin added: "For a sociable night out, that’s no reason to recommission a series, but it’s such a sociable job in terms of the team and all of us hanging out. I think we were the first work back on covid and we couldn’t see each other, hang out at night, we couldn’t do anything – that wouldn’t be a good way to end it so – it’s not how to recommission a job!"
Could this mean AC-12 will reunite to have a final goodbye? Here's hoping!
