BBC has released an explosive Line of Duty season 6 trailer that’s sure to get your heart pumping. Helmed by the talented Jed Mercurio – AKA the man behind the network’s other hit crime drama, Bodyguard starring Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes – the long-awaited instalment promises a whole heap of tricky situations and moral ambiguity for the coppers at AC-12.
Line of Duty season 6 will follow the anti-corruption unit’s highest-profile investigation yet, with the crucial objective to determine whether a murder case was deliberately tampered with.
“It will be our job to detect whether police corruption has contributed to this murder remaining unsolved,” Superintendent Ted Hastings (portrayed by Adrian Dunbar) can be heard telling AC-12.
“The whole line of inquiry has been deliberately suppressed to protect organised crime.”
Additionally, it appears as though the ever-intriguing hunt for ‘H’ has received its fair share of screen time. As alluded to by Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (portrayed by Martin Compston), the popular fan theory regarding whether they should really be looking for a man or woman may have some validity. But only time will tell…
Joining some of the other usual suspects already mentioned, Vicky McClure is set to make a return as Detective Inspector Kate Fleming, alongside Shalom Brune-Franklin as a new recruit to the AC-12 team, Detective Constable Chloe Bishop.
Trainspotting star Kelly Macdonald will also make her debut as a guest lead, taking on the role of Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson – the senior investigating officer of the unsolved murder case in question which has attracted the attention of the anti-corruption authorities due to suspicious conduct.
BBC’s Line of Duty season 6 will premiere on March 21st – watch the feature-length trailer above.
