Where is Line of Duty season 6 filmed?
Filming was due to run until May 2020 but was halted when the UK went into lockdown in March 2020.
There was talk that the filming may be completely overhauled, but it was confirmed that the cast returned to Belfast to continue filming in autumn 2020.
To the delight of fans, Vicky McClure and Martin Compston had been posting footage of themselves goofing around on set.
Producers dropped an explosive trailer for the series last week packed gunfights, car crashes and a game-changing ‘H’ clue.
How many episodes are there in Line of Duty season 6?
Fans will be delighted to know that the latest season of Line of Duty will feature an extra episode.
All five previous seasons – except for series one – have consisted of six one-hour episodes on BBC One.
