The smash hit BBC show was thought to end with the sixth series but after a disappointing finale to many fans, bosses are now reportedly planning for a new run of episodes.

However fans shouldn’t get too eager as it is claimed it will take a long time.
The Daily Star Sunday claims top secret meetings have been held to make the decision.
A source told the publication: “Another series is happening. This is the news millions of fans have been hoping for.
“A lot of stuff still needs to be agreed and it is likely to take a while. Fans will probably have to wait a few years before it airs on TV.”
The show was a ratings smash for the BBC with more than 15 million watching the finale.
Will Line of Duty return for a new series?
Showrunner Jed Mercurio told BBC Breakfast earlier this year: “Well I think if Line of Duty fans propel Sleeper to the top of the bestseller charts, I think that will say that there’s a desire for more of my work, so that might motivate me.”
He then claimed: “Currently there are no plans, to answer that question seriously.”
However he added: “We’re all so thrilled by the response to season six, it did so well.
“It’s fantastic to be part of something like that, an absolute once-in-a-lifetime experience that the cast and I really loved being part of.
“If there was a way, we’d obviously look at that seriously but just being honest with you right now, we don’t have a plan in place.”
Do you think Line of Duty should return?
