Mother of God! Is Line of Duty really coming back for a three-part special?
Rumours of a return to AC-12 are flying around the internet. But how likely is it that we will once again find ourselves on the hunt for bent coppers?
There are so many great reasons for Line of Duty to make a comeback. No one liked the ending. The show’s stars seem to have the appetite for it. There’s room in the finale’s talk of how AC-12 has “never been weaker” for a glorious phoenix-from-the-flames-style return. And, it’s worth saying again, no one liked the ending.
But will it get more episodes? The internet has been aflame with rumour today after a story in the Sun quoted the highly reliable sounding source of “a TV insider”, claiming: “There was a very strong feeling, particularly among fans, that there was unfinished business with Line of Duty. Viewers weren’t satisfied with the ending of series six and were crying out for a more sensational conclusion – now Jed can deliver that.”
