LUTHER fans sure are faithful. The second season premiere debuted this past Tuesday in the U.K., watched by 5.6 million viewers on BBC Two. Seems Mr. Elba is quite pleased by the show’s ratings success as evidenced on Twitter:
Season 2 picks up a year after the climactic season finale: Alice is biding her time in a pysch ward, Ripley has been demoted to uniform duty, and Luther has been banished to dusty files, solving cold cases. Luther’s only source of comfort exists in his newfound friendship with Mark North–forever bonded by their grief over the loss of Zoe. Luther grabs his chance to redeem himself and make amends to the people closest to him, when he’s called back to duty; a new threat arrives in the form of a Punch-mask wearing serial killer terrorizing the streets of London.
Recap of Episode 1 at MONSTERS AND CRITICS
LUTHER Season 2 will air on BBC America in Fall 2011.
