Where is Line of Duty season 6 filmed?
The hit series has been filmed on location in Northern Ireland since the second series, moving from Birmingham to Belfast, writes The Location Guide.
The website adds: “Previous series using city spots including the BT Tower, Invest NI, Telegraph Building, Fitzrovia Mansions, Odyssey Pavilion, Belfast City Hall, First Trust Bank – Custom House Square – and East Belfast Yacht Club.”
There was talk that the filming may be completely overhauled, but it was confirmed that the cast returned to Belfast to continue filming in autumn 2020.
To the delight of fans, Vicky McClure and Martin Compston had been posting footage of themselves goofing around on set.
Producers dropped an explosive trailer for the series, which was packed gunfights, car crashes and a game-changing ‘H’ clue.
