Idris Elba has hinted that he might make another series of Luther.
The British actor starred as DCI John Luther in the detective series from 2010 until it ended with a two-part fourth series in 2015.
But he has now suggested during a Twitter Q&A that the award-winning BBC One programme could return for a fifth series.
A fan asked the actor: "@idriselba what's the chance of a new series of Luther?"
And Elba, 43, replied: "Big chance. Watch this space."
He added a sunglasses emoji.
There had been speculation that the crime drama will return, and earlier this year Elba admitted there had "been some thought" about the possibility of more episodes.
A film version of the series is also thought to be in the pipeline.
