Watch! Love/Hate season five to air next month

THE much-anticipated fifth season of Love/Hate is reportedly set to air on RTÉ One next month.

Although RTÉ is not expected to confirm an air date until later this week, the Irish Daily Star is reporting that the first episode from the new season will be broadcast on Sunday, October 12.

Nidge - played by Tom Vaughan Lawlor – will once again be the focus of the show as Detective Inspector Moynihan (Brian F O'Byrne) looks to bring the kingpin down.

Watch the trailer above for a sneak peek at the new series.

As previously reported by the Irish Post, Saoirse Ronan's father, Paul Ronan, has also landed a role in the new series.

Love/Hate will head up an impressive line- up for the autumn schedule which includes The Fall and a brand new three-part drama, Charlie, starring Aiden Gillen.
