'Line Of Duty' Boss Jed Mercurio Teases Season 6 Return Next Year
Missing a gritty crime drama from your life? Well, if so, good news, because Line Of Duty could be back as soon as next year, according to the show's boss.
While there is still no official date for when we'll be seeing Ted Hastings, DI Kate Fleming and DS Steve Arnott back on our screens again, writer Jed Mercurio has revealed he's hoping the sixth season will return "sometime in 2020".
Psst...We have exciting news to share about the future of Pretty 52
Speaking to RadioTimes.com, he said: 'I would hope it's sometime in 2020, next year. But that's not something we're able to confirm.'
Keep it vague, yeah, Jed?!
Previously, Line Of Duty has always returned in March.
But it could be a little later this time around, as Jed - who also wrote The Bodyguard - went on to explain that the show was still very much in the "planning stage" at the moment.

"That's something that we have at the planning stage, so we are working towards a date. We can't confirm everything until things are in place," he added.
The finale of season five aired back in May, and fans were left with an excruciating two year gap between that and season four.
As the last series finished, fans were left with one major talking point - the identity of 'H'.
(So if you haven't finished watching that, I'd look away now).
While, throughout the series fans were looking for one mysterious individual, it later transpired that 'H' wasn't an initial at all, but actually a clue.
It transpired that there were actually four corrupt coppers who were up to no good: Dot and ACC Derek Hilton - who are now dead - and Gill Bigelow, who is in witness protection.
However, we're still none the wiser who the fourth individual is, leaving an interesting cliffhanger for them to pick up in the sixth season.
We can't wait!
