The wait is finally over – Line of Duty is back on our screens. The crime drama has released its season six finale trailer on April 26th. It’s been quite the series of Line of Duty, with every single episode seeming to ramp up the tension a further few notches.
Line of Duty’s sixth season, consisting of seven episodes, premiered on BBC One on March 21, 2021. AC-12, headed by Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) and DI Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), investigates DCI Joanne Davidson (Kelly Macdonald) and her staff, which includes former AC-12 officer DI Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure)
We know ACC Derek Hilton was the second part of H, and legal counsel Gill Biggeloe was the third, so we would expect AC-12 to be on the lookout for the fourth and final dishonest official in series 6.
Despite being framed by Biggeloe in series 5, Hastings remains a clear possibility, and AC-3’s DCS Patricia Carmichael, who was questioning him, seems to be suspect. Meanwhile, OCG member Ryan’s admission to the police academy would almost certainly be followed by his appointment as the force’s newest crooked cop. Martin Compston hinted that plots will be more explored – and perhaps come to a climax – in series 6 when speaking to journalists including BT.com to advertise the fifth series.
What Can We Expect From The Finale?
We’ve made it to the end of the lane — and a chance to hear more about H, too — in season 6 episode 7. Is the name of the mystery character actually going to be revealed? Based on some of the knowledge we currently have, it seems to be a possibility.
To find out what happens in the Finale of the Season do tune into BBC One on Sunday 9 pm – 10 pm.
