After halting production six months ago due to coronavirus, filming has resumed on Line of Duty today (September 1).

Showrunner Jed Mercurio shared several photos from the set on Twitter, including one showing stars Martin Compston (DS Steve Arnott) and Adrian Dunbar (Superintendent Ted Hastings) back in action at police anti-corruption unit AC-12.

Vicky McClure, who co-stars as DI Kate Fleming, also shared a photo of her and Compston on set.

In a BBC press statement, Mercurio said: “We know Line of Duty fans are desperate for series six and we hope we can get it on air as soon as possible. Thanks so much for your patience in these difficult times.”

McClure added: “Been sitting on these incredible scripts for some time now, so I’m really looking forward to getting back to it and seeing the Line Of Duty family.”

The upcoming season sees AC-12 investigate the alleged misconduct of a new character, DCI Joanne Davidson (Kelly Macdonald), the senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case.

The BBC reassured fans today that “the Line of Duty production team will adhere to comprehensive protocols to ensure that the new series is produced in a safe and responsible manner” during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Seasons one to three of Line of Duty are available to watch on AMC, while season four featuring Thandie Newton is available on AMC Premiere. We recently rounded up 10 reasons why it deserves to become your new favorite crime series.
