Martin, 35, teased fans as he took to Instagram to share the photo.
Martin, who plays DS Steve Arnott in the hit crime drama, shared an image of the first page of the script.
Starring alongside Vicky McClure as DI Kate Fleming and Adrian Dunbar as Superintendent Ted Hastings, Line Of Duty centres around the adventures of the fictional AC-12 unit within the police force – set-up to investigate police corruption.
And, as series six begins production, Martin captioned the image: “Guys… I’m scared.”
It wasn’t long before fans rushed to the social media site to register their excitement.
“You are scared??? I’ve just peed myself with excitement,” said one.
Mother of God, excited!
Mimicking Ted Hastings’ catchphrase, another wrote: “Mother of God, excited!”
Referencing creator Jed Mercurio’s liking of killing off main characters in each series, a third quivered: “I hope Jed is good to Steve this year – he’s been through the mill!
“Mind you – that’s a credit to you as he knows you can pull off anything he throws at you on screen.”
