Line of Duty's Adrian Dunbar hints H mystery has NOT been solved and teases huge season 7 twist

LINE of Duty's Adrian Dunbar has hinted that H mystery has NOT been solved and teased a HUGE season seven twist.

The final episode of gripping crime drama saw Ian Buckells unmasked as the mysterious 'H'.

This proved be a very divisive decision among fans, as many thought a character like Osbourne would be unveiled as the final man at the top of the OCG.

Speaking at the BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday, the Superintendent Ted Hastings actor told comedian Tom Allen there "might be a way to go" with the twist.

Adrian also revealed that he was one of the five people who knew that Ian Buckells was the fourth member of 'H'.

The actor said: "Absolutely we knew who H was.

"There may be a way to go with all that. We don’t know yet, do we? There are rumours. Who knows?”

Creator Jed Mercurio is yet to confirm if there will be another series, despite series six breaking records as the most watched of a drama in the 21st Century.

BBC One viewers were left with mixed feeling at the concluding episode, with some suggesting that there was someone higher than Buckells pulling the strings.

For many viewers, the news came as a shock as many expected the finger to be pointed towards dodgy Chief Constable Philip Osborne.

Some haven't been able to accept the end to the mystery, and have even gone as far to continue to accuse actor Owen Teale after the show.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Owen, who depicted Osborne in the drama, admitted people are still coming up to him to say they "know" he is H.

"I'm now defending myself in the shops, with people saying 'I know you're H', and I go, 'No, no, no, wait a minute, we all know who H is now'," he said.

"They go, 'No, no, no, no, I don't believe that for a second. There's no way he would have had the power to do that. But your character was the original'.

"They remember it, right from the beginning. He was the guy who actually messed with Steve Arnott, he bullied him and that's why he jumped into AC 12 and jumped out of firearms."

Fans were disappointed when it was announced that it hadn't been confirmed that more episodes of the crime drama were in the pipeline.

BBC Chief Content Officer Charlotte Moore said the broadcaster would "have a conversation with the team" about the future of the series.

In an interview with Radio Times, series creator Jed Mercurio says it’s “not entirely clear” if there will be a series 7 of the show.

“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.”

All seasons of Line of Duty are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
