When Will Luther Season 5 Be on Netflix?

Why You Shouldn't Expect to See Luther Season 5 on Netflix Anytime Soon

BBC's favorite crime drama has returned for a fifth season, but it looks like Netflix subscribers will have to find another way to catch Detective Chief Inspector John Luther (Idris Elba) get up to his old tricks. All four previous seasons of the series — along with several other popular BBC shows – have been removed from Netflix's streaming site, which makes it highly unlikely the fifth will be available to stream anytime soon.

But this season is definitely not one fans will want to miss. A killer is on the loose, and Luther is called in to dive into the "deepest depths of human depravity" to put a stop to this new nightmare. This time around, Luther teams up with DS Catherine Halliday (RIP Justin), who asks if this is "normal." Girl. Luther does creepy psycho killers like no one else, and it looks like this season is no exception. And since Luther would never miss a chance to really shake the table, the final moments of the action-packed trailer reveal a surprise return in the form of Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson). Her appearance is brief, bloody, and ominous as all hell, especially considering she's supposed to be dead.

The good news (if you have cable) is that the fifth season premiered on BBC America on June 2 and will continue to air the four episodes consecutively. For those without cable, a new streaming home hasn't been announced for Luther yet, but stay tuned for more information when it does!
