Line Of Duty bosses drop pics of Kelly Macdonald as season 6 wraps

Bosses have teased first-look images of Kelly Macdonald in Line of Duty as filming for series six has wrapped up.

The sixth instalment of the hit cop drama, which resumed filming at the end of August, has finally finished production in Northern Ireland.

The new series will see Trainspotting actress, Kelly take on the role of Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson – the senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case whose unconventional conduct attracts the attention of AC-12.

Speaking about the latest series, showrunner Jed Mercurio began: ‘Thanks so much to our brilliant cast and crew who applied rigorous CoVID safety measures to deliver Line of Duty 6 to our wonderful fans.

‘We’re all immensely grateful to World Productions and the BBC for the unswerving support they’ve given us in a time of unprecedented challenges to UK television production.’


Simon Heath, executive producer for World Productions added: ‘Huge praise has to go to Jed, Kelly, Vicky, Martin, Adrian and the brilliant Line of Duty cast and crew who completed filming on Series six yesterday.

‘After five months of lockdown and three more of shooting under the most trying of circumstances. The audience is in for a treat next year.’

The BBC had initially revealed series six would be on the way next year and, while the exact release date remains a mystery, at least we’ve got something to work with.

Line of Duty fans are also still eagerly awaiting to find out who ‘H’ is, and Jed hasn’t stopped teasing us with what’s to come, as he keeps sharing behind-the-scenes snaps of the gang filming.

Last month, he posted a ‘cryptic plot clue’ which featured an unidentifiable character stood outside a fruit warehouse – named Arnotts – wearing a hazmat suit.

The writer also delighted fans by sharing images of the cast enjoying themselves in-between takes.

Series 1-5 of Line of Duty is available to stream in the UK exclusively on BBC iPlayer.
