Line of Duty season 6 start time, channel

Line of Duty season 6 episode 1 is available on BBC iPlayer now. Episode 2 will air on BBC1 and BBC iPlayer at 9 p.m. GMT / 5 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 28.

It's time to watch Line of Duty season 6! So get ready because we're hopefully going to get a lot of answers. When Season 5 finished back in May 2019, we saw the nasty Gill Biggelow revealed to be 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 has now started.

Line of Duty season 6 Episode 1 aired on BBC1 and BBC iPlayer on Sunday, March 21 and episode 2 will arrive this Sunday (March 28) at 9 p.m. GMT / 5 p.m. ET.

We already know 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 — has joined the cast. And we know that the series' main stars Vicky McClure (DI Kate Fleming), Adrian Dunbar (supt. Hastings) and Martin Compston (DS Arnott) have all returned, too.

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
