LINE OF DUTY, Season 5 (Exclusive U.S. Premiere)

#1 Highest-rated UK show of 2019

"Masterpiece... Not a scene, line or beat is wasted... instantly addictive" -The Guardian on Season 5

"Binge-inducing television at its best... best British police show since Prime Suspect... Suspensefully plotted and wickedly well acted, this is British crime drama at its finest... Addictive... jaw-dropping reveals or cliffhangers" -The New York Times

Season 4 is "100% Fresh... an adrenaline-fueled thrill ride from start to finish" -Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus

Int'l Trailer

Seasons 1 - 4 Trailer (Easy binge at just six-episodes per season)

From the creator of international sensation Bodyguard, BBC One's top-rated, critically adored cop thriller LINE OF DUTY returns. In Season 5, when three police officers are shot dead during the hijack of a seized drugs transport, police anticorruption unit AC-12 move in to investigate possible police collusion. Written and created by Jed Mercurio (Bodyguard), LINE OF DUTY is a cat-and-mouse thriller that takes a probing look into modern police corruption. Each season features a new guest lead and Season 5 stars Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire's Al Capone, Save Me, Peaky Blinders) and Rochenda Sandall (Black Mirror) alongside series regulars - Martin Compston (The Great Train Robbery, Sweet Sixteen) as DS Steve Arnott, Vicky McClure (Broadchurch) as DS Kate Fleming, and 2018 BAFTA Award Nominee Adrian Dunbar (Blood) as Supt. Ted Hastings. Continuing its tradition of gripping storylines and breathtaking cliffhangers, Season 4 of the BAFTA-nominated crime drama was its most successful yet. Growing across its run, the series four finale was the series highest-rated ever with a consolidated figure of 9.9 million viewers, placing it among the top five dramas of 2017 across all UK channels. Season 5's recent premiere on BBC One had the highest ratings ever for the series. (6 EPS)
