Line Of Duty season six has captivated fans, with more of us tuning in than ever before. We’ve been following Jo Davidson’s tale as we found her OCG family connections and attempted to determine if she is corrupt or not.
Additionally, as the search for ‘H’ – a.k.a. The Fourth Man – advanced, we saw Steve Arnott’s prescription drug addiction take center stage, and Patricia Carmichael tried to shut down Ted Hasting’s AC-12.
However, people want to know whether there will be a Line Of Duty season 7 and what we may anticipate in terms of release date, cast speculations, and storylines. What we do know so far is as follows.
Line Of Duty Season 7 Release Date
Season 7 has not yet been announced, but we’re likely in for a long wait if it is.
Line of Duty previously broadcast seasons in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019, and (due to a pandemic-related production delay) 2021. The drama is often shown between March and April, while there is no regulation preventing it from airing at another time of year.
While it is still conceivable that Mercurio will write and shoot the second season in time for a 2022 broadcast date, we believe it is more probable that Line of Duty will return in spring 2023.
Martin Compston recently told ES Magazine that it would be a tragedy if he didn’t work with his Line of Duty co-stars again, but they all need a break first: “The prospect of never working with any of the men again would be terrible.
However, given all that has occurred this week, everyone needs some time away from it, including the audience. Thus, we will see.”
Line Of Duty Season 7 Plot
After the bombshell revelation that Detective Superintendent Ian Buckells (Nigel Boyce) was H/the Fourth Man working for the OCG inside the police department, it seemed that AC-12’s quest for the mystery person was finally over.
However, this does not imply the tale is complete. Buckells was not in command of all the corrupt officers since he permitted their communications and assisted in executing some actions.
Chief Constable Philip Osborne — who has been “bent” from the show’s inception — continues to work directly against AC-12, even saying in a press conference during Season 6, Episode 5 that they cause more damage than good.
Given how the last group of episodes seemed to be building toward a conclusion, eliminating Osborne would be appropriate to conclude the series.
Fans of the program are well aware that each season centers on a certain corrupt cop, who an excellent guest actor always portrays.
Lennie James, Keeley Hawes, Thandiwe Newton of “Westworld,” and Stephen Graham have all starred on the program as different cops throughout the years.
Marcus Thurwell, portrayed by James Nesbitt, was briefly introduced in Season 6 as a retired corrupt cop residing in Spain.
Although he was allegedly assassinated at the Season 6 finale, many fans believed it was a coverup because we never saw Thurwell in action. Could Thurwell be the catalyst for Osborne’s demise? The truth will have to wait till Season 7 is confirmed.
