The Our Girl actor will join AC-12 as DC Chloe Bishop.
The news follows the announcement that the upcoming sixth series of Line of Duty has been extended to run for seven episodes instead of six, and was revealed today via an AC-12 Memorandum to Staff...
I am writing to inform you that DC Chloe Bishop (Shalom Brune-Franklin) will be joining AC-12 to assist in their important work on a tricky upcoming case. This action will be effective immediately.
AC-12’s highest priority will always be capturing bent coppers. With that in mind, we have requested and been granted an extension of an extra episode for our next series, making it our longest yet.
This extension ensures we can properly and thoroughly investigate organised criminal activity when we return soon to BBC One and BBC iPlayer for our sixth outing.
In the meantime, to see AC-12 sucking diesel, footage from DI Denton’s case will be repeated on BBC One weekly from Saturday 6th February at 9pm.

The new series will feature a brand new case for AC-12, this time investigating Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson, played by Kelly Macdonald, the senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case whose unconventional conduct attracts the attention of AC-12.
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.
