Line Of Duty Will End With 90-Minute Bumper Finale On 5th May
Line of Duty fans are in for a treat after the BBC confirmed that season five will end with a bumper 90-minute finale.
Fans of the hit police thriller are getting an upgrade from the usual hour-long run time for the nail-biting finale, due to air on Sunday 5th May, The Sun reports.
The show, starring Adrian Dunbar, Vicky McClure and Martin Compston, has been the watercooler topic of April, with the first episode of series five drawing in 7.1 million viewers across the nation - and that's not even including those catching up on BBC iPlayer.
So it's no wonder fans seem to be excited for the extra long episode:
Yay can't wait even though I don't want this series to end #LineOfDuty

The opening episode of the series was nail-biting, seeing the head the Balaclava Men revealed as undercover police officer John Corbett (Stephen Graham) and fan fave Maneet Bindra (Maya Sondhi) killed off (RIP), which set the tone for the series.
The feature-length finale will hopefully conclude some of our burning questions, mainly: who is 'H'?
Just this week, Line of Duty fans thought they spotted a clue as to the identity of the mysterious corrupt copper
During episode three of series five, viewers were shown an email chain between undercover gang boss John Corbett, leader of the Balaclava Men, and 'H'.
But while the crooked cop's identity wasn't revealed by his email address, fans believe a the typo 'defiantly' within the exchange could be a huge clue in helping them work out who 'H' really is.
One person guessed: "I thought 'definately' in the email trail was a clue. Hastings is so obviously educated it couldn't be him."
Somebody else echoed: "I knew Hastings wouldn't spell it 'definately'."
Creator Jed Mercurio was also responsible for hit 2018 series The Bodyguard, which also included a bumper 90-minute long finale, drawing in a massive 10.4 million viewers.
We're sure Line of Duty will hit similar numbers if not more - will you be watching?
