Line of Duty fans, we have some good news. It's reported that the popular BBC show is planning on returning to production in late August.

Which means we're one tiny step closer to Season 6! Yass.

Production is reported to be restarting towards the end of August (

According to Deadline, the police drama is looking to resume production towards the end of August after shutting down during lockdown.

It's believed producer World Productions has "pencilled in" the week of 24th August as a potential date to restart filming - but of course, this would be subject to change at any time, depending on the pandemic.

Shot in Belfast, the show was one of the first of the BBC's major productions to be shut down in March, as a result of Covid-19.

It comes after creator Jed Mercurio said in May that returning to filming would be "very hard".

"Until wider society has the public health infrastructure of test, trace and isolate in place it's going to be very hard for anyone," he explained.

Of course, there have been many developments since May, including the test and trace programme.

And with filming set to resume, we can start looking towards Season 6. The next instalment is expected to continue to follow AC-12 as they try to discover the identity of 'H', who viewers discovered to be a corrupt quartet at the end of Season 5.

We can't wait to see our favourite AC-12 trio; Adrian Dunbar (Supt Ted Hastings), Vicky McClure (DI Kate Fleming), and Martin Compston (DS Steve Arnott) return to the fold, even if it is a longer wait than usual!

Other BBC shows that are expected to start up later in the year include Peaky Blinders and Call The Midwife. They are reported to be restarting in November and September respectively - but of course, this is also subject to change.
