"Luther" (BBC America TV show) is a crime drama starring Emmy nominee Idris Elba as Detective Chief Inspector John Luther, the super-intuitive detective struggling to cope with his own demons.

Season 2

Season 2 is comprised of four parts and features two new distinctive thrilling crime stories, from creator and acclaimed suspense novelist Neil Cross.

Following the brutal murder of his wife, John Luther is devastated, but still standing. With his old unit gone, he returns to policing at the newly created Serious and Serial Unit, headed by former police complaints officer Martin Schenk (Dermot Crowley, "Babel," "Bleak House"). He quickly gathers together his team, rescuing his old partner Detective Justin Ripley (Warren Brown, "Occupation," "Shameless") from uniform. It's not long before they're dealing with their first case. A masked man wanders the streets of London, carrying out ritualistic murders in historic locations, working his way up to one final masterpiece. At the same time Luther's trying to rescue Jenny, an old acquaintance's daughter from the seedy world of prostitution. But his mission to give Jenny a new start in life comes with a high price and he's caught between breaking the rules and the mobsters that rule the world of prostitution in London.

Season 3

The near-genius detective is back under intense pressure with two conflicting crimes to investigate and a ruthless ex-cop determined to bring him down. But love also crosses the detective's path in this new chapter when he meets Mary Day (Sienna Guillory, "Resident Evil," "Love Actually"). While Luther is offered a chance at happiness, he must also face some of the darkest crimes of his career.

Passionate, committed and just on the right side of ruthless, John Luther is back stalking the streets of London searching for the evil that lurks in the city. The new four-part miniseries opens with a crime that centers on a twisted fetishist targeting young women in the capital. The killer has struck once already and Luther is convinced he's going to kill again. But with London's best detective ordered to investigate another case (the murder of an internet tormentor) the chances of catching the lethal fetishist before he strikes again are shrinking. Luther's life is made doubly complicated when it emerges that his worst enemies are his own colleagues, and they're willing to break every rule in the book to bring him down ... including targeting his right-hand man, Detective Sergeant Ripley. Cracks splinter the foundations of Luther and Ripley's alliance. Will Ripley turn a blind eye to Luther's antics or will he go on record? Then, after years of grief, a chance encounter means that this lonely detective might just be on the verge of finding love. But the return of Alice Morgan could change Luther's path completely. Although they've stood on opposite sides of the law - the two have always shared an undeniable connection, and a powerful one at that. Now, Alice is back for the detective she can't seem to let go of. Will Mary Day be able to accept Luther's past, can Luther leave it behind, and will Alice let him?

The "Luther" cast includes Idris Elba ("Thor," "The Wire," "Takers") as John Luther, Ruth Wilson ("Small Island," "The Prisoner") as Alice Morgan, Dermot Crowley ("Babel," "Bleak House") as Martin Schenk, Warren Brown ("Occupation," "Shameless") as Justin Ripley, Nikki Amuka-Bird ("Survivors," "Small Island") as Erin Gray, Paul McGann ("Withnail and I," "True Dare Kiss") as Mark North, Pam Ferris ("Harry Potter," "Matilda") as Baba, and Kierston Wareing ("The Shadow Line," "Fish Tank") as Caroline Jones.

The "Luther" TV show is a BBC and BBC America co-production distributed by BBC Worldwide. The series is created and written by Neil Cross ("MI-5," "The Fixer"). Idris Elba is associate producer, and Phillippa Giles (Emma, Jane Eyre) is executive producer.
