In rather unexpected, but completely fantastic news, the BBC has announced that gritty crime drama Luther will return for a fifth season.

The critically acclaimed series will be back for a new four-part season, once again starring Idris Elba in the role for which he received a Golden Globe, SAG and Critics Choice Award. (Not to mention an enormous career boost.) Series creator and writer Neil Cross will also be back as well, and basically anything feels possible right now.

The third and final season of Broadchurch, ITV’s buzzy detective drama that’s seen rather exceptional highs and depressing lows during its brief run, will finally make its way to the US this Spring. BBC America will premiere Season 3 starting on Wednesday, June 28. So mark your calendars appropriately.

Broadchurch stars Doctor Who’s David Tennant and The Night Manager’s Olivia Colman as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy and Detective Sargeant Ellie Miller. The two partners were brought together after the murder of a young boy rocked a seaside village community. (A lot of other things happened, but if you haven’t seen the show before, it’s best to go in not knowing much.)

Good news: The countdown to a new season of Poldark is officially on!

Bad news: We’re not going to see it until October here. Which, we’re Americans who love British TV, we’re pretty used to waiting. Heck, we’re pretty good at it, at this point. (We’ve even got a long list of things you can watch in the meantime while you’re waiting for more Poldark, should you need suggestions.) But doesn’t mean it’s not rough. The only real bright side is that at least we will probably get double the amount of promotional material to look at while we wait. Like this new trailer for Season 3.

The prequel to beloved crime drama Prime Suspect is coming to America this June, and Masterpiece has released a trailer for the highly anticipated series!

Titled Prime Suspect: Tennison, the series takes place in 1973, eighteen years prior to the events of the original Prime Suspect. That series starred Dame Helen Mirren in the lead role, who won all kinds of awards for her performance, including several Emmys and BAFTAs, as well as a prestigious Peabody Award. (So, no pressure, y’all).

The footage, featuring stars Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes in their roles as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, is the first we’ve seen to date from Victoria Season 2.
