Line of Duty season 6 start time, channel
Line of Duty season 6 is due to start on Sunday (March 21) at 9 p.m. GMT / 5 p.m. ET. It will be available on BBC1 or BBC iPlayer.
Are you ready to watch Line of Duty season 6? We hope so, because it returns to our screens on Sunday after what seems like an eternity. Season 5 finished back in May 2019, bowing out with (spoiler alert!) an almighty final episode in which the nasty Gill Biggelow was revealed to be not just nasty but also thoroughly corrupt, Steve Arnott was revealed to be a deadly shot and Superintendent Ted Hastings was revealed to not be the mysterious ‘H’.
Unless he still is. It’s not entirely clear. Either way, it was exciting stuff, as all five seasons of this British police thriller about anti-corruption unit AC-12 have been so far. And the good news is that season 6 is nearly with us.
It’s not yet clear whether the entire season will arrive on iPlayer all at once, or whether episodes will be added weekly.
What we do know is that there will be seven episodes this season, one more than in previous runs. We also know that the excellent Kelly Macdonald — star of the likes of Trainspotting, Boardwalk Empire and No Country for Old Men — will be joining the cast. And we know that the series’ main stars Vicky McClure (DI Kate Fleming), Adrian Dunbar (supt. Hastings) and Martin Compston (DS Arnott) will all return.
Check out the trailer below for a taster of what’s in store, and scroll down to find out everything you need to know to watch Line of Duty season 6 online.

How to watch Line of Duty season 6 in the US
Line of Duty fans in the U.S may need to check out a service such as ExpressVPN to watch season 6 of the show, as we can’t find it on any streaming services other than BBC iPlayer. Previous seasons have made their way to the U.S, though, so it’s quite possible that someone will pick up the rights to it in future.
For now, seasons 1-5 are available to watch on both Hulu and Amazon Video.
Hulu plans start at just $5.99 per month and you get access to a ton of great shows and movies, library content from FX and next-day airings of current TV shows. Hulu also offers originals including Palm Springs and Fyre Fraud.View Deal
