The BBC’s Luther ran for 20 episodes over five seasons. Idris Elba played the title character, a detective who rarely follows the rules.

The final episode aired in January 2019, and Luther was arrested for acting outside the law. But that was the end of his story. Netflix has revived Luther for a TV movie that will continue his journey. In summary, here is everything we know about Luther: The Fallen Sun, including plot details and release dates.

Luther: The Fallen Sun Release Date

Filmmakers also emphasize that if you are new to Luther: The Fallen Sun, you won’t need to watch the five previous seasons before that date if you start fresh with the movie.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Jamie Payne states: “The story in some ways continues – if you binge the series from season one to the film, the story is continuous. But because the film has got such a larger platform, we thought it was important that if someone was watching the movie for the first time, it had its own story.

The film has some returning cast, like  Idris Elba as John Luther and Dermot Crowley as Martin Schenk. Alongside there are some new stars like Cynthia Erivo and Andy Serkis. 

Luther: The Fallen Plot

Speaking to EW about that plot, Elba said: “He’s done so much to bend the law to catch the bad guys that he’s ended up in jail. So that’s where we start the story. He’s contemplating what he’s going to do with his life.”

Elba continues: “Luther is just so haunted – that’s his whole thing. Even when he’s a free man, he can’t help but chase it, chase the ghosts that get into his head. And I think that’s what drives him in this film. He’s just very haunted by things he’s done, things he could have done, people that have died.”
