Will Ted Hasting’s leave AC-12 for good?
The trailer for Line of Duty season six has landed and fans cannot believe their eyes.
The trailer was not only gripping and full of suspense, there were several explosive Easter Eggs in the trailer.
One of them related to Ted Hastings, the head of anti-corruption unit AC-12.

Just two seconds into the trailer, there is a magazine cover featuring murder victim Gail Vella (Andi Osho).
At the bottom of the magazine, there is a QR code which if you scan on your phone, takes you to a letter from Philip Osborne, Chief Constable (Owen Teale).
The letter addressed to DCC Andrea Wise (Elizabeth Rider) regarding the work of AC-12.
The letter reads: “I think it is high time we had a much closer look at AC-12.
At the end of season five, Ted Hasting’s was still being considered as one of the main suspects in solving the identity of ‘H’.
Line of Duty fans will remember ‘H’ was a clue to solve the identity of the corrupt officer.
He also found himself under investigation after Gill Biggeloe (Polly Walker) attempted to frame Ted as one of the corrupt officers.
In the end, he as found guilty of discreditable conduct for unauthorised undercover operations and is given a final written warning.
For now, it seems like Hastings is still in the role but this could be called into questions depending on the events of season six.
Fans have been sharing their own theories online after the trailer for series six dropped.
One fan tweeted: “Back to the letter. Philip Osborne (who signed it) is the one that Steve Arnott stood up to in series one when they bashed down the wrong door (59 instead of 56). Are we going full circle?”
A second fan added: “Cannot wait! Nothing better happen to Ted though!”
A third fan commented: “Chief constable Osbourne. How did THAT happen? He shot up the ranks. Had my suspicions of him since S1.”
