Line of Duty star Martin Compston has hinted at what viewers can expect from the sixth series.
The BBC crime drama is expected to resume filming in the near future, as the BBC has joined ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky, STV and ITN in easing social distancing measures for crews filming TV drama.
Interest now turns to what fans can expect from the return of AC-12. Speaking to the Radio Times, Compston confirmed that there won’t be a long wait in series six before a game-changing development.
“For this year, I think we’ve filmed [episodes] one and two, and as a cast, we’ve got [the scripts for] three and four, and Jed [Mercurio] is writing five and six аnd we hаven’t seen them, аnd there’s а bombshell аt the end of four аnd I’m desperаte to find out whаt hаppens,” he teаsed.
