BBC America has announced, via press release, that John Luther (played by Idris Elba), the near-genius, emotionally-impulsive detective tormented by humanity's darker side, will be back on your TV screens on September 3, at 10pm/9c, as part of its Dramaville hour, airing on 4 successive nights - September 3, 4, 5 & 6.

It's not quite "binge-watching" a la Netflix; but in 4 back-to-back days, you'll get to watch the entire season (there are 4 episodes, which is typical).

Here's an official synopsis:

Idris Elba  returns in the title role of the acclaimed mini-series which won him a 2012 Golden Globe for “Best Actor” in this four-night television event in September - with two conflicting crimes to investigate and a ruthless ex-cop determined to bring him down. Luther’s life is his job, that is until love crosses his path and offers him a chance of happiness. Sienna Guillory (“Resident Evil,” “Love Actually”) joins the cast as Mary, a woman who works in a vintage clothing shop and meets Luther in a chance encounter. But is Mary ready to accept Luther’s past? And can Luther leave it behind? A self-destructive near-genius, John Luther might just be as dangerous as the depraved criminals he hunts. Luther shines a light into the hearts and minds of psychopaths and killers … and the shadowy spaces of his own soul.

The series is created by Neil Cross and executive produced by Phillippa Giles.

Now we patiently wait for first trailer, which I'm sure will surface soon.
