Together with independent health and safety consultants, in full consultation with industry partners, and in accordance with all current government guidelines on Covid-19, the Line of Duty production team will adhere to comprehensive protocols to ensure that the new series is produced in a safe and responsible manner.
As previously announced, the next instalment of the hit police thriller will feature a brand new case for AC-12, this time investigating DCI Joanne Davidson, played by Kelly Macdonald, the senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case.
Series regulars Martin Compston, Adrian Dunbar and Vicky McClure will all return, alongside Line of Duty newcomers Shalom Brune-Franklin, Perry Fitzpatrick, Andi Osho and Prasanna Puwanarajah.
Speaking about the return to filming, Martin Compston who plays DS Steve Arnott said “It’s been a long few months and it will be a different way of working from when we stopped, but I’m delighted to be back on the case with the Line of Duty team!”
Vicky McClure who plays DI Kate Fleming of course said “Been sitting on these incredible scripts for some time now, so I’m really looking forward to getting back to it and seeing the Line of Duty family.”
Any Adrian Dunbar who plays Supt. Ted Hastings said “Even with the imposition of Covid restrictions I can't hide my excitement at getting the team back together. So many people wondering…what happens next?”
And finally, Line of Duty's showrunner Jed Mercurio added "We know Line of Duty fans are desperate for Series 6 and we hope we can get it on air as soon as possible. Thanks so much for your patience in these difficult times."
The first five series of Line of Duty are available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
