Line of Duty has completed shooting its sixth season after being halted for five months due to coronavirus.

Writer-creator Jed Mercurio shared the good news on social media, tweeting: "That's a wrap! Our last day of filming completed a few hours ago. 82 days of shooting with the CoViD shutdown in between, but we made it, thanks to our brilliant cast and crew. And thanks to our loyal fans for your exceptional patience."

The latest season of the hit British police procedural started shooting earlier this year but was paused in March as the coronavirus pandemic took hold. The shoot resumed in September with the BBC confirming that "comprehensive protocols" had been put in place "to ensure that the new series is produced in a safe and responsible manner."

Longtime Line of Duty stars Vicky McClure (DI Kate Fleming), Martin Compston (DS Steve Arnott), and Adrian Dunbar (Superintendent Ted Hastings) are joined in the new season by new cast member Kelly Macdonald, who is playing DCI Joanne Davidson, the senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case.

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.
