A new spate of nightmarish murders brings DCI John Luther (Golden Globe, SAG & Critics’ Choice Award winner Idris Elba) to once again face the depths of human depravity on the streets of London, when the new season of Luther premieres Sunday, June 2 on BBC America.

While the monstrous and seemingly indiscriminate killings become ever more audacious and public, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday (Wunmi Mosaku) are confounded by a complex tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an untouchable corruption.
