"Oi……I’m back!" he captioned two behind-the-scenes snaps.
Elba posted a picture of a clapperboard from the set dating back to October 27, presumably his first day back in character.
He also shared a picture of his feet while in full costume. You might not be able to see his face, but you can definitely recognise Detective Chief Inspector John Luther's uniform of choice: his grey, wool coat paired with a red tie.
While plot details for the movie haven't been revealed yet, it's safe to say that Luther could go bigger in a feature backed by the streaming giant.
"I've maintained that I'd like to see [Luther] come to a film," Elba told Digital Spy and other press in 2020, before news of a film was officially announced.
"That's what I think we're headed towards, is a film. I'm looking forward to making that happen. It is happening!"
He added: "With a film, the sky is the limit. Obviously, you can be a little bit more bold in the storylines, maybe international, a little bit sort of up the scale. But John Luther is always going to be John Luther."
Alongside Elba, Luther: The Movie also stars Lord of the Rings actor Andy Serkis as the movie's villain. Cynthia Erivo, seen in Harriet, is set to play Luther's nemesis. Is it a rival detective or another villain? Only time, and perhaps a few more pics from set, will tell.
