Announced by BBC, award winning Nigerian-born, British actress, Wunmi Mosaku will be joining Idris Elba in the fifth season of the Emmy-nominated crime drama, Luther.
Mosaku will be playing brand new recruit, Catherine Halliday, while Idris Elba will be returning as John Luther.
BBC describes the fifth season, “as a series of monstrous killings becomes ever more audacious, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday are confounded by a tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an unspeakable horror.”
Speaking about the fifth season and Wunmi Mosaku, BBC’s drama chief, Piers Wenger said,
“It’s fantastic to have Idris Elba and the team back filming in London, and we are thrilled that the exceptional Wunmi Mosaku will be returning to BBC One to join this already stellar cast. Neil Cross’ scripts for this fifth [season] of ‘Luther’ are explosive and fans won’t be disappointed.”
Luther (4×60’) has been commissioned by Piers Wenger and Charlotte Moore for BBC One, and is produced by BBC Studios, the BBC’s commercial production arm and co-produced with BBC America.
