BritBox has officially become the Canadian home of hit BBC series Line of Duty and will premiere the sixth season on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.
BritBox’s deal with ITV Studios also gives the streamer exclusive rights to all future seasons of Line of Duty, which is written and created by Jed Mercurio. Canadians can also catch up on the first five seasons of the series.
Premiering in 2012, Line of Duty is a “cat and mouse” thriller that is set in the fictional police anti-corruption unit AC-12 and Martin Compston as DS Steve Arnot, Vicky McClure as DC Kate Fleming, and Adrian Dunbar as Superintendent Ted Hastings. The sixth season will see Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire) join the critically acclaimed series as DCI Joanne “Jo” Davidson, whose unconventional conduct in a high-profile murder investigation raises AC-12’s suspicions, as they begin to challenge the facts of the case and question whether Davidson is doing everything in her power to find the perpetrator.
The latest season of Line of Duty broke UK ratings records as it wrapped up its seven-episode run on May 2. The rollout of the series on BritBox will be weekly, with a new episode premiering each Tuesday.
BritBox is available to Canadians for $8.99 a month or $89.99 for a year, following an introductory free trial period and can be streamed across apps on iOS and Android devices, select smart TV, as an Amazon Prime Video channel, and online at www.britbox.com/ca/.
