Line of Duty restored to Netflix

Acclaimed UK police series Line of Duty has recently returned to Netflix, after being pulled off the streaming platform in April.

Seasons 1- 4 are now available. Stan also has Seasons 1 – 5.

The shuffle comes as a result of the collapse of Kew Media Group and its distribution arm Kew Media Distributors.

Deadline reports Netflix has gone direct to World Productions and cut a deal to return the series.

ITV Studios will handle global sales for the upcoming sixth season, which would likely see it debut with BBC First (to be confirmed). Production was halted during COVID-19 shutdown.

Creator Jed Mercurio recently said, “I want to get back as soon as we can, but that’s got to be when it’s safe.

“To be honest with you there’s a lot we can do within the industry, but until wider society has the public health infrastructure of test, trace and isolate in place it’s going to be very hard for anyone… I just don’t think, unless wider society has got the process right, we’ll be able to work in isolation.”
