Idris Elba hints at 'Luther' return

London: Actor Idris Elba has revealed that plans are afoot for 'Luther' to return to television.

Neil Cross - creator of the BBC crime drama - claimed last year that 'Luther' would not return to television, though plans for a film spin-off were said to be in development, reportedly.

However, Elba, who plays John Luther, said there will be more television outings for the character.

"I have ambitions to take it into a film and make it a slightly bigger world, but I think television is beckoning so we're going to do some more," he said.

Elba also confirmed plans to have Ruth Wilson return as Alice if 'Luther' returns to the small screen. "If we come back, Alice will come back," he said.

The most recent episode of 'Luther' aired July 23, 2013 on BBC One, bringing the show's third series to a close.
