The show about the members of Anti-Corruption Unit 12 was created by Jed Mercurio, whose credits include Strike Back, Lady Chatterley's Lover and Bodyguard.

Production on the sixth season was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. It is unclear when it will resume.

Quiver Entertainment has the international distribution rights to the first five seasons. Seasons 1 through 4 are streaming on Hulu.

"I'm so pleased that we can take the upcoming season of the hugely addictive and hotly anticipated Line of Duty series to market. It's a formidable show that has grown from strength to strength and really is 'must-see' drama. We are thrilled to represent another Jed Mercurio and World Productions masterpiece on the global stage," Ruth Berry, managing director of global distribution at ITV Studios, said in a press release Tuesday.
