The talented Wunmi Mosaku, who won a 'Best Supporting Actress' BAFTA last year for her stunning work in BBC's Damilola, Our Loved Boy, will join Idris Elba in the fifth season of the Emmy-nominated crime drama, Luther.
Idris Elba will be returning as the brilliant but emotionally impulsive detective, John Luther — unarguably his best role and performance to date — while Mosaku will be playing brand new recruit, Catherine Halliday.

According to a BBC statement about the fifth season, “as a series of monstrous killings becomes ever more audacious, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday are confounded by a tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an unspeakable horror."
Mosaku has been having a pretty solid career rise over the past couple of years. In 2016, she starred in "Playtest" — one of the six episodes of Black Mirror's third season — and now she can be seen in Netflix's new acclaimed dramedy, The End of the F***ing World.
Speaking about the fifth season and Wunmi Mosaku, BBC’s drama chief, Piers Wenger said:
"It’s fantastic to have Idris Elba and the team back filming in London, and we are thrilled that the exceptional Wunmi Mosaku will be returning to BBC One to join this already stellar cast.
Neil Cross’ scripts for this fifth [season] of ‘Luther’ are explosive and fans won’t be disappointed.”
Luther's fourth season ended in 2015, with Idris Elba landing Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for his performance. While a premiere date for the fifth season has not been announced yet, filming has already begun in London.
