Howbeit he has been caught up several times in life or death situation. But, Steve’s AC-12 members always helped him to bring him back to the track.
Line Of Duty started almost a decade ago. Since then, Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) and DI Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) always been beside Steve to rescue him from any threatening position.

Line Of Duty Season 6: A Big Challenge Is Waiting For Steve Arnott
Recently, showrunner Jed Mercurio shared a black-and-white picture of Steve, Kate, and Ted in action. Surprisingly, the “O” for “of” looks like a bullet broke the glass and hit directly Steve’s chest. Shortly, Martin shared that picture on his Instagram teasing the fate of his character. There he also questioned: “It’s not a hidden message” and tagged BBCiplayer.
It seems that Martin’s alter-ego Steve would shot dramatically in the next season. Shortly after his post, many fans started wondering whether their beloved character could make it this time. Well, Arnott has often managed to return no matter how severe injuries he gets. But, will it turn out as the final outing for his character? Speaking on the next season, Martin praised the cast Jed has pulled together. Is that mean someone else would join Kate in this mission after Steve?
DI Kate Fleming Will Replace Steve Arnott
Last October, the creator Jed shared a picture of Vicky McClure’s DI Kate Fleming and Kelly MacDonald’s DCI Joanne Davidson pairing up. In behind the scenes image shared on Twitter, you can see Kate pacing along with Davidson. Yet Jed didn’t disclose anything. But, it looks like Kate is on an undercover mission as they both shared a tense scene.
There DI Fleming‘s eyes were wide opened while holding a walkie-talkie close to her mouth. But deeming of what Martin shared, it seems that Kate replaced Steve in his mission. So, she could know about DCI Davidson’s mission and could uncover her intention. Would that mean Steve indeed leaves us in the next season?
