The stars of hit British crime drama Line Of Duty have returned to the set as U.K. government COVID-19 safety measures have been met.
Filming on the sixth series of the police procedural, which will air on the BBC in the U.K. and Acorn TV in the U.S., was halted in March as the U.K. went into lockdown amid the COVID-19 crisis.
However, in a press release on Tuesday, creator Jed Mercurio and executive producer Simon Heath announced production has now resumed after they implemented the required coronavirus safety measures.
Mercurio said: “We know ‘Line of Duty’ fans are desperate for (season six) and we hope we can get it on air as soon as possible. Thanks so much for your patience in these difficult times.”
The series follows the work of the AC-12 anti-corruption unit, with Boardwalk Empire star Kelly Macdonald joining the cast as Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson to investigate an unsolved murder case.
