Line of Duty season 6 gets larger-than-expected episode order

Line of DutyWe know that Line of Duty season 6 is going to be premiering at some point this year — now, we’ve got more insight that makes things all the more exciting.

Today, BBC One confirmed that there is going to be an extra episode added to the show’s already-established order of six. Basically, we’re going to get now seven episodes of the crime drama — and odds are, these will all be jam-packed. One of the things that Line of Duty has done a really good job at over the years is working in order to ensure that each season is twisted, thought-provoking, and topical in their own way. It’s a show about corruption, whether it be AC-12 looking outward or at times being forced to look within themselves. Because of the whole “who is H?” mystery, we’ve seen just about every big twist and turn possible.

What also makes this news so particularly enjoyable is how the series chose to announce it, with a funny little scene inspired by the show. Just in watching the brief exchange below, you are reminded fully of what makes this show so special and also why we are so excited in order to see what the future holds.

Filming for Line of Duty season 6 wrapped last year with a number of different health and safety protocols in place. Here is some of what showrunner Jed Mercurio had to say at the time:

Thanks so much to our brilliant cast and crew who applied rigorous Covid safety measures to deliver Line of Duty six to our wonderful fans. We’re all immensely grateful to World Productions and the BBC for the unswerving support they’ve given us in a time of unprecedented challenges to UK television production.

Hopefully, a more formal premiere date will be announced soon.
