Martin Compston teases epic Line of Duty comeback as he reveals 'unfinished business' for BBC thriller | The Sun

MARTIN Compston has teased that Line of Duty could be returning for another season as he revealed there's "unfinished business" for the police drama.

Fans have been begging for a new series of the hit BBC series ever since it came to its epic conclusion last year.

So lovers of the popular police programme should be thrilled to hear a seventh series could be on its way in the not-too-distant future.

That's because Line of Duty star Martin, who portrayed Steve Arnott, just revealed the show could return.

The 38-year-old sat down with his co-star Adrian Dunbar on Wednesday night's edition of The One Show.

Speaking to hosts Jermaine Jenas and Emma Willis, the Scottish actor admitted they wouldn't do a new series "for the sake of it", but he seemed to think the show could continue.

Jermaine asked Martin: "The question on everybody's lips at the minute. Is there a chance of another series of Line of Duty?"

Martin quipped he could be binned off by bosses if he spilled too much.

He joked: "There's always a chance, but if I answer it, there's a good chance I'll be killed off in the next one!"

On a more serious note, he went on: "The fact that people still want us back after six series is an amazing feeling, but it's my stock answer, but we've not done anything differently.

Turning to a nodding Adrian, he continued: "But we feel maybe there's bits of maybe unfinished business and stuff, but I mean yeah, it's been some ride, and if we go again, great."

Earlier this year, the Line of Duty cast and creator reunited for drinks – sending die-hard fans of the beloved series into a frenzy.
