“Luther” Season 5 comes to an end on BBC America tonight, but is that it for the Idris Elba-led drama? It seems the show hasn’t been canceled or renewed yet.

“Luther” is a British show, and that means there is no set timeline for cancellation or renewal. However, Elba has been clear that he wants to return, and he mentioned that Season 5 is not intended to be the final chapter of John Luther’s story.

“This season is not the end,” he told Empire in January. “But there are some real changes that will happen.”

Elba doesn’t seem to think “Luther” Season 6 is on the way, though. Don’t worry, he’s not referring to cancellation. The actor hopes that the next time DCI John Luther appears will be on the big screen.

“I don’t think we’re going to do too many TV versions of it – the next step is to make a film,” he told Digital Spy in December. “This season has the film very much in its sights. If there is a film, then it will be somehow connected to this season.”

Whether “Luther” returns for Season 6 or a movie, fans should expect to be waiting for quite some time after Sunday night’s finale. The British series is known for taking long hiatuses with four years between Seasons 4 and 5.

In the U.S., ratings for “Luther” are stable. It averaged nearly 300,000 viewers throughout the first three of four episodes, according to TV Series Finale. The good news is that the series is more popular than ever in the U.K., where its fate will be determined. Season 5, which aired across the pond in January, pulled in 5.6 million viewers, peaking at 5.9 million, and the finale garnered 4.6 million viewers.

The “Luther” Season 5 finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. EDT on BBC America.
