BBC One has shared a picture of the Line Of Duty cast back at work, not long after the news broke that series 6 had officially entered production.

In an image posted on the official BBC Instagram, Martin Compston, Vicky McClure, Adrian Dunbar and new star Kelly Macdonald (from Boardwalk Empire, The Victim and Giri/Haji) are all cosied up - looking happy to be back on set.

"Back to work for this lot at the #LineOfDuty Series 6 read-through! @line_of_duty," the Twitter page teased in the caption.

And in the comments, fans were pretty pleased to see they were one step closer to the next instalment, too.

"Buzzzzzing," one wrote.

While another added: "Great news! Looking forward to seeing you all back on the screen again. Good luck!!!"

A third chipped in: "Ahh nice one! I actually started watching from the start again on Saturday, can't wait for the new series".

This is the first time newcomer Kelly has been seen alongside the rest of the cast.

Kelly Macdonald was announced as AC-12's new adversary (

People are already eager to see what sort of trouble her character, Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson, is going to bring along with her.

While we know very little about the plot of Line Of Duty season six so far, it looks like AC-12 could have met their match with Joanne.

Her unconventional methods of investigation into an unsolved murder are set to raise some eyebrows as she makes her debut. But will they be able to get to the bottom of their toughest case yet?!

This snap of the full cast isn't the first time that the new series has been teased online.

Martin Compston, who plays the brooding DS Steve Arnott, confirmed it was around the corner just before Christmas, sharing a photo of the new season's script.

Vicky McClure, Martin Compston and Adrian Dunbar are returning to 'Line Of Duty' (

The 35-year-old actor wrote: "Guys... I'm scared," as he spilled the news.

Season 5 of the drama - which came out in March - had the nation well and truly gripped as we watched as Arnott and co attempt to get to the bottom of the identity of mysterious bent copper 'H'.

While we don't have an official air-date for the new season, we know it's currently in production, so we shouldn't have to wait too long.

Traditionally, the BBC series has aired on a two year-cycle, meaning that it would have been slated for screens around Spring 2021 - so getting our next fix a year early is super exciting.

What a treat!
