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.
