Although the official story of the upcoming sixth season is yet to be revealed, the show is expected to continue from the finale of season 5, and fans will be glad to hear that season 6 will be a lot better than any of the previous seasons. In an interview, Compston assured that he had checked on the scripts, and they look a ‘lot better’ than that of the previous ones, and the upcoming season is expected to shed light on the mysterious ‘H.’ Contrary to popular beliefs, ‘H’ turned out to be four persons, and three of them have been revealed, so that leaves just one, and fans hopes to get that information in Line of Duty Season 6.

Compston also revealed that season 6 onwards, the direction would most likely follow the roots and be more ‘subtle’ just like the first three seasons on BBC 1. The productions of the upcoming season 6 were stopped because of the rise in health concerns due to Covid-19, and according to Martin Compston’s latest update, they would be back at some point to complete the pending work, and he assured the fans that it would be ‘bigger and better.’ He added that they would resume when it becomes completely safe out there, while Jed Mercurio earlier revealed that they might have to re-shoot everything if any changes occur, so expect season 6 to come late.
