Line of Duty fans had expressed their excitement at finally getting to discover the unknown corrupt officer following weeks of gripping drama. Tonight’s finale ended with H being unveiled as DS Ian Buckells (played by Nigel Boyle), leaving many fans unimpressed.

Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), DS Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and DI Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) were also seen leaving AC-12 together.

Fans of the show, including Piers Morgan, 56, have expressed their thoughts about the episode on Twitter.

In view of his 7.9 million followers, he wrote: “Definately a tad underwhelming. #LineofDutyFinale.”(sic)

Agreeing with him, one of his fans commented: “That was so underwhelming, they could’ve made it so much better.”

A second added: “The worst finale there has ever been! The whole series has been messy and underwhelming!!”

“Agree, a bit of a damp squid,” a third added.

Ahead of the conclusion, Piers expressed his excitement to watch the highly anticipated final episode.

He wrote: “Can’t wait for Line of Duty.

“Just utterly superb television, brilliantly created & driven by @jed_mercurio and superbly acted, especially by @Vicky_McClure @martin_compston #AdrianDunbar.”

A seventh series of the show hasn’t been promised by show creator Jed Mercurio, however he also hasn’t ruled it out.

He previously told Radio Times Magazine: “We’re in a situation where it’s not entirely clear that there will be a seventh series.

“We would hope there could be. But we’re having to do our planning coming out of Covid, and a whole bunch of other things, around the idea that these things aren’t guaranteed at all now.”

But, fans of the show believed his post this evening suggested the sixth series could be the last.

Taking to Twitter this evening, Jed shared a picture of himself alongside cast members Martin, Vicky and Adrian.

The quartet were seen beaming for the camera appearing to be enjoying some downtime away from filming the show.

The producer commented: “Working with @Vicky_McClure @martin_compston #AdrianDunbar has been the highlight of my career.

“Thanks to the rest of the cast, our brilliant crews and the production team @worldprods @BBCOne @BBCTwo for six incredible seasons.”

Martin and Vicky were quizzed about a potential seventh series by Jonathan Ross on his show this week.

He said: “We won’t come back just for the sake of it. That’s for sure.

“We’ll come back if there’s a story to tell. But, so as well, if it ends well maybe sometimes it is best to leave it. But, so, genuinely we don’t know.”
