In 2021, Line of Duty returned to BBC One for its long-awaited sixth season.

But when is episode 7 of Line of Duty series 6 going to air on BBC One and what will the new chapter entail?
Line of Duty season 6, episode 7
There has been a huge amount of secrecy surrounding Line of Duty season 6, both on-screen and off.
As such, little has been revealed about the upcoming episode 7 with the BBC synopsis only offering a brief hint of what is yet to come:
“With time running out, AC-12 attempt to unmask ‘H’, the Fourth Man (or Woman) commanding the network of corrupt officers behind the murder of Gail Vella. But sinister and powerful forces appear intent on orchestrating a cover-up.”
When is episode 7?
- Episode 7 of Line of Duty season 6 will air in its usual slot of 9pm on Sunday, May 2nd.
Like all episodes in season 6, the hour-long instalment will premiere on BBC One and will not be available early on BBC iPlayer.
However, if fans miss the new chapter when it releases, it will be available for catch-up once it has aired.
How many episodes in total?
- Line of Duty season 6 consists of seven episodes in total.
That’s right, the upcoming episode 7 will be the final instalment in the ongoing series.
Despite facing delays thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, Line of Duty series 6 is actually the longest instalment of the show so far, with all other series featuring six episodes, apart from series 1 which consisted of just five.
Agonisingly for fans, it has not been announced if Line of Duty will return for season 7 at the time of writing so the upcoming chapter will be the last until it’s revealed otherwise.
Line of Duty season 6 concludes on BBC One and iPlayer with episode 7 on Sunday, May 2nd, 2021.
