Idris Elba poses in the press room with the Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television award for "Luther" at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 15, 2012 in Beverly Hills

*BBC America has committed to co-produce and air a four-episode third season of the Idris Elba-led “Luther” this year reports The Chicago Tribune.

The UK’s BBC One greenlit a third season a few months ago, the question remains when in 2012 they will actually get around to filming them, reports Dark Horizons.

Though she was a major character in the second and had a small appearance in the third, Ruth Wilson isn’t expected to return as Alice for this season. The actress is currently committed to the Disney film, “Lone Ranger.”

Earlier this month, Elba picked up a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of John Luther in the series.
