'Line Of Duty' Has Started Filming For Series Six

'Line Of Duty' Has Started Filming For Series Six

Excellent news for Line of Duty fans: filming for series six is officially re-underway.

The BBC confirmed the good news on Twitter, with a behind-the-scenes shot of Martin Compston (who plays DS Steve Arnott) filming a scene inside a police interrogation room.

"Great news! Filming is back underway for series six of @BBCOne's #LineOfDuty," the broadcaster wrote.

According to a press release from the channel, the show will be filmed with the help of "independent health and safety consultants, in full consultation with industry partners" and in accordance with the government's Covid-19 guidelines.

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 the pandemic outbreak.

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

"We know Line of Duty fans are desperate for series six and we hope we can get it on air as soon as possible," he said in the announcement. "Thanks so much for your patience in these difficult times."

In June, Line of Duty star Rochenda Sandall (Lisa McQueen) explained Mercucio's "super awareness" for the pandemic and how it has affected his stance on firing up production again.

Before he became a writer, Jed worked as a hospital physician, at which time he responded to an advert in the British Medical Journal to provide medical advice for the BBC's medical drama Cardiac Arrest.

From there, with hardly any writing experience, Jed went on to script the show for two years with his writing causing controversy for its realist depiction of hospital life.

"Jed worked in a medical position beforehand so he's got a super awareness of [the pandemic] I imagine," continued Rochenda.

"He has got a wider knowledge than most, so I don't think it will start until it is absolutely okay to do so, which means fans might have to wait another year."

Martin Compston added of the crew's return: "It's been a long few months and it will be a different way of working from when we stopped, but I'm delighted to be back on the case with the Line of Duty team!"

We're so excited to see the police drama back in production.
