The BBC has confirmed that Line of Duty will be moving to BBC1 for its fourth series which will air next year.

The hugely popular show has also had a fifth series commissioned, following the conclusion of the third series last Thursday, with the final episode pulling in a remarkable 5.6 million viewers over its 90-minute finale.

BBC's Controller of TV Channels and iPlayer Charlotte Moore said "Jed Mercurio's explosive thriller will find a new home on BBC1 for two more series and create room for new drama to flourish on BBC2."

The third series of Line of Duty has achieved the highest recorded ratings for a BBC2 drama and the fourth series, which is set to begin filming in August, will no doubt be met with a great deal of excitement!
