    Guys, we have great news for you: Luther is back.

    The BBC has teased us with a short trailer featuring some ominous scenes from series four of the top show, and lead actor Idris Elba voiceover asking: ‘Do you ever have that dream when you’re falling? Did you ever wake up in it?’

    Series four of Luther will be a two-part special set to air on

    BBC One in December with Idris starring alongside Rose Leslie, Patrick Malahide, Darren Boyd, Laura Haddock and John


    The BBC described the return as: ‘Luther’s back. Pitted against

    his most chilling adversary yet, haunted by the ghosts of his past and

    hell-bent on retribution, he’s drawn into a terrifyingly complex case

    It sounds good to us.

    The tease ended with the hashtag #LuthersBack – and we imagine Twitter will be going wild for the return of Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. We certainly are.

    Watch the trailer below…
