Line of Duty will return to our television screens in just a few weeks time after the BBC revealed the start date for series six of the hit show.
Fans have been eagerly anticipating the next instalment of the cop drama, which will see Scots star Martin Compston return as Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott.
But the series was put on hold due to filming delays brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, fans can sink their teeth into new episodes when the series returns to BBC One from Sunday, March 21 at 9pm.
The BBC also teased viewers of what they can expect from the series, which will see Glasgow’s Kelly Macdonald appear as Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson.
It will be the longest series in the show’s history, with seven episodes scheduled to air instead of six.
The plot for the next instalment isn’t yet clear, but series five left viewers on the edge of their seats as the controversial police anti-corruption unit continued their hunt for the mysterious and dangerous ‘H’.
Filming for series six wrapped up in November last year.
Greenock -born Compston, who stars as DS Steve Arnott, praised the “discipline and determination” of those behind the scenes, as well as the scripts.
He said: “Delighted we’ve finally wrapped series 6! Tip of the cap to the production team for putting the protocols in place to provide a safe working environment and to the phenomenal crew, having the discipline and determination to work within the new parameters and get us over the line.
“It was a different way of filming to get used to but we’re lucky to get back doing a job we love.
“The scripts from Jed Mercurio superb as ever and we gave it everything we had so fingers crossed.”
Series 1-5 of the hit show is currently available on BBC iPlayer for fans and newcomers to catch up on before series six airs next month.
