Idris Elba confirms Ruth Wilson's Alice will return to Luther – and says series 5 is "not the end"

Idris Elba has confirmed that Ruth Wilson’s Alice will return to Luther.

He’s also clearly stated that series five is “not the end”, which is great news for fans who are always left wondering if ‘Loofah’ will be back.

Speaking to Empire about Wilson’s character, Idris said that “the dynamic between them has grown to be one of the best character chess games we’ve seen on television”.

He continued: “Luther is in awe of her. She is exquisite as a criminal: intelligent beyond belief.”

Idris also confirmed of the upcoming fifth series: “This season is not the end. But there are some real changes that will happen.”

Earlier this month, Luther decided to give us a very early Christmas present by dropping a first-look at season five.

Speaking about season 5 a few months ago, Elba teased: “All I can say is we know how long the fanbase wait for the show, and we’re never taking that lightly.

“So as much as we have to keep one eye on how do we not do what we’ve done before, at the same time saying to the audience, ‘This is Luther‘, so you recognise the traits.

“That’s the tough part. Because after five seasons, you kind of go, ‘Oh where do we go now?’ and for me I’m very excited about the season, it feels very similar to what we’ve seen but it takes a few turns. Luther is still the character we love to hate.”

As we gear up for series 5, star Ruth Wilson has also been teasing a potential spin-off for her character Alice Morgan, revealing there have been talks.
