Line of Duty fans are in for a treat after a new action-packed trailer dropped teasing the return of the hit cop drama.
There’s guns, car crashes and cryptic clues to who might be the mysterious H anti-corruption officers have desperately been searching for throughout the popular BBC series.
Season six, which returns on Sunday 21 March, is certainly not one to miss if these latest gripping scenes of the AC-12 team in action are anything to go by.
Trio DI Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure), DI Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) and SI Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) return to our screens later this month as they continue their crackdown on corrupt officers.
And there’s also two coppers, DCI Joanne Davidson – played by Kelly MacDonald of Trainspotting fame – and DC Chloe Bishop (Shalom Brune-Franklin) – to help with enquiries.
And, as Ted Hastings reveals in the clip, the AC-12 team will be involved in “this force’s highest-profile investigation” as they try and discover whether police corruption contributed to an unsolved murder.
In one action scene Steve Arnott brandishes a pistol while in another a speeding white fan is sensationally seen flipping over and its windshield smashing.
And in another adrenalin-fuelled sequence armed police are seen charging up stairs with machine guns and smashing a door open.
There’s even a thrilling gun-fight with criminals dressed in ski masks, which undoubtedly have viewers hooked to their TV sets.
A staggering 13million viewers tuned in to watch the drama unfold during the last series.

And teased under the tag line ‘Lies Cost Lives’, SI Hastings stresses: “It will be our job to detect whether police corruption has contributed to this murder remaining unsolved.
In another angry outburst he questions: “When did we stop caring about honesty and integrity?”
The team are tasked with investigating the death of Gail Vella, with the integrity of new cop on the block Joanne Davidson questioned.
Murder victim Gail (Andi Osho) appears to be TV journalist who presented on the press briefing where Rohan Sindwhani (Ace Bhatti) is unveiled as the force’s Central Police and Crime Commissioner.

And as DCI Davidson tells DI Kate Fleming: “It’s a life cut short – and whoever did it has got away with it.”
Irish actor Adrian and fellow co-star Vicky appeared on the Graham Norton Show last Friday night to promote the return of the show.
And Adrian revealed: “18 months have passed so the landscape has completely changed.
“We are starting from a place that the audience will probably find a bit shocking at first.

“Things and people have been moved around so the first episode is going to be one of those 'head-wrecks' for the audience.”
Speculation is rife amongst fans about what’s going to happen in the new show.
One fan tweeted a PDF he titled: “Operation Easter Egg Hunt” accompanied by the caption “I found an easter egg in the trailer.”

The PDF document is a letter from the ‘Office of the Chief Constable’ which asks ‘Is it time for a leadership change? What role should Ted Hastings have in this organisation – if any at all?”
And other fans speculated about it appearing via a secret QR code after just two seconds of the trailer.
One fan of the show offered: “There’s a lot more clues if you look closely at the pdf!!”
Another added: “Ted and Steve have both come under suspicion of being involved in corruption – so now is it the turn of the wonderful Kate Fleming”
“Will this be another red herring or will this be something more?”
If you also click on the word 'next' on the PDF you get taken to a prescription for Steve Arnott for loads of painkillers – one that says (WARNING CAN CAUSE ADDICTION).
