Well, this is a nice way to end the week and kick off the weekend: BBC America has released a first look photo of Idris Elba returning as DCI John Luther in the crime drama Luther.

In the photo Luther has his hands full, helping someone off with his jacket. Actually, at second glance, he might not so much be assisting the unseen gentleman as using what appears to be a headlock as a police tactic.

We’re not clear on who is underneath that jacket, but we are curious.

We do know the two-part Luther special will also star Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy), Darren Boyd (Fortitude), John Heffernan (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell) and Patrick Malahide (Indian Summers).

Michael Smiley and Dermot Crowley will be returning to reprise their roles as Benny Silver and DSU Martin Schenk, respectively.

The air date has not been confirmed, but is “coming soon.”

The special has been written by Luther creator Neil Cross (MI-5) and directed by Sam Miller (No Good Deed).

Are you ready for some Luther?
