This Sunday night brings us the season 6 finale of Line Of Duty.

The BBC police drama has kept us on the edge of our seats throughout lock-down and all eyes will be on AC-12 this weekend as we hope to finally unmask the final H.

Originally penned to be a six-part season, the BBC added an extra episode and we’re glad they did. So far we’ve had plot twists, murders, and more famous one-liners from Spt. Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar).

The trailer for the final episode was released this week and leaves us with so many questions, with many fans of the show speculating AC-12’s Kate Fleming could be the 4th H.

In last weeks episode, Kate (Vicky McClure) was arrested with DCI Jo Davidson (Kelly MacDonald), but was later released with Jo taking the rap for the shooting of bent copper PC Ryan Pilkington (Gregory Piper). Viewers also have questions as to what happened in the car park following the shooting and are wondering why Kate fled the scene. But remember, this is Line of Duty, and we can be sure of a few more twists before episode 7 ends on Sunday.

Will There Be A Season 7?

Whatever the outcome this weekend, fans will be hoping there will be a seventh season of the show. Since debuting in 2012, Line Of Duty has become a massive success for the BBC, with last week’s episode attracting a UK audience of over 11 million. Speaking to Radio Times, Line Of Duty creator, Jed Mercurio, says he “hopes there could be another series”, but added that filming difficulties due to Covid-19 may affect planning.

For now, it’s all eyes on BBC1 this Sunday night at 9 for the season six finale of Line Of Duty.
