All seasons of that series gained a lot of fan following.

Expected Release Date
On September 14, 2021, Netflix, on its official Twitter handle, announced the Luther movie. Netflix, along with BBC, will produce the film this time. According to some sources on the internet, the movie will start its production works in November 2021, but no official announcement has been made about it till now. No official release date has been announced till now, but we might get to see it somewhere in 2022 or 2023. Netflix often brings its series during Christmas, so it might be possible that we see this movie during Christmas.
Luther movie is expected to begin from where it left in Luther series season 5. As some cast members have been revealed and they remained to be same. If this is the case, then the movie will bring an answer to the question that arose to the viewers during Luther season 5. In season 5 endings, we saw the police arrested Luther, and his future was at risk. That made viewers think he was the culprit, the consequences, and the actual reason behind his arrest.
Elba said that he doesn’t know about the future events, will John Luther make any decision in jail or not. But it is best to bring in a movie and reveal about it. One more question that arose was will Alice Morgan be saved or not. She had once returned from a death bed, and this time, there are very few chances of her returning.
Here we are only predicting the plot since no official announcement has been made for the plot so far. We may see the movie continue from the Luther series season 5. Even there are some chances that the movie will bring in some other stories with the same characters, background theme, and setting. And bring in many new twists and turns to the movie.
The expected cast members we can see in Luther’s movie are DCI John Luther, played by Idris Elba, who will be the main character as revealed by Netflix. Detective role by Cynthia Erivo, criminal villain role by Andy Serkis, Dermot Crowley role by Martin Schenk, Paul Mc Gann role by Mark North. We might see some other cast members also returning and some new members joining in for the movie.
