Elba will be taking on his fourth season starring as DCI John Luther in the beloved TV drama. The special is expected to be a two-part miniseries centered around the show’s title character. And a BBC America press release offered a pretty telling look into the angle the show will be taking this year. The network revealed that Luther will be “pitted against his most chilling adversary yet, haunted by the ghosts of his past and hell-bent on retribution” as he’s “drawn into a terrifyingly complex case that pushes him closer to the edge than he’s ever been.”

The special is planned to air later in 2015, with executive producer Elizabeth Kilgarriff already gushing about Elba coming back to reprise the role. “It’s very exciting to have Idris Elba back as DCI John Luther and to be in East London shooting the show’s fourth installment,” Kilgarriff said in the press release. “Neil Cross has pulled out all the stops to make this the biggest, scariest story yet and it’s a privilege to welcome such a glittering array of acting talent to our already stellar cast.”
