Is Luther on BBC America?

It will be!

Luther season 5 is 100% coming to BBC America – you just have to show a little patience!

BBC America currently only has the trailer available to watch online, although all four full episodes will be uploaded in the near future.

This could still be some time away, however, with Luther not on the BBC America TV schedule before February 1st.

Is Luther Season 5 on Netflix?


At the moment, all four previous seasons of Luther are on Netflix. However, season 5 is not.

The best method to watch Luther season 5 online is via the BBC iPlayer.

However, to access the U.K BBC iPlayer you will need a VPN tool.

1. Pick a VPN Tool

There are a wealth of VPN tools out there but we recommend the likes of Express VPN, VPN Hub, Panda, Cyber Ghost, Nord VPN, Pure VPN, Vypr VPN and

All of them will cost a little bit of dollar although some of the tools offer free 30-day trials.

There are also multiple packages depending on whether you want to hide ads or block privacy filters, etc.

2. Download and Install

Simply sign up to your chosen VPN tool – usually via one, three, six or 12-month deals – and download the tool.

3. Follow the Instructions

Each VPN tool comes with different guidelines.

However, they’re all relatively easy to follow but may vary depending on whether you have a MacBook or Windows software.

The key is remembering to select ‘U.K’ when prompted to select where you would like your new VPN to be registered – this is rerouting your VPN from the U.S.A to the U.K.

With the VPN correctly setup you should now be able to access the BBC iPlayer.
