Line of Duty's Adrian Dunbar hints a seventh series could happen after cast reunion | The Sun
A SEVENTH season of Line of Duty could well be on the way, says Adrian Dunbar.
The actor, who plays Superintendent Ted Hastings, has hinted at another series.
The hit drama series wrapped on our screen last May, much to the despair of fans.
But there could yet still be another season of the police drama, according to Adrian, as he thinks writer Jed Mercurio has it in him to continue the story.
The 63-year-old said: “I think there will be something else, and he is a showrunner in the American sense, in that he’s across everything and we only have one writer – it’s him.
“So that’s quite good. You don’t have to do the work on Jed’s scripts when they come in.”
The show was aired on BBC, and similar to the success of Peaky Blinders, it aired once a week, meaning viewers had to wait for the next episode, instead of binge-watching.
And Adrian said this drew the audience in, but he was glad they liked his character.
He said: “We did something that people probably thought wasn’t going to happen again, which was people watching a programme live because of the twists and turns.

“And I thought ‘God this is serious the way people get involved in stuff.’
"So therefore I count myself lucky that most of the people I know like the character of Ted Hastings, love the series, so therefore when I am approached by the public, it’s usually with a big smile and ‘oh my God it’s you, can we have a photograph and so forth.’
“Having said that, I’ve just been to Majorca and I purposely booked myself into a place where there’s only Germans.”
