luther-cancelled-renewed-bbc-one-season-threeSometimes good and bad news come from beyond the pond for our list of renewed shows on 2011 and all the cancelled shows on 2011,and in this case, the overseas news are good, since BBC One has renewed Luther for a third season, even though season two is yet to air in the US. So, while numbers for Luther have been great, there is still to be factored in whatever may come via US airings.

After posting 30% gains in the ratings from season one to season two, and reaching 5.5 million viewers in the UK, it´s been a clear cut decision waiting to get official that Luther was renewed for season three. Who wouldn´t renew that kind of success!

The only problem is that Luther season two consists of only four episodes, and that probably means Luther´s season three is also short, and therefore, the waiting between September 28th (premiere date) to season finale date will be much shorter than the waiting for the following season, slated to air in 2012 in the UK, and second half 2012 in the US. (That´s a whole lotta waiting!)

What do you think? Are you happy Luther got renewed for season three? Let me know in the comments section.
