BBC America has made some changes in the premieres of "Luther" and "Broadchurch." Part Two of the new four-part "Luther" miniseries will now premiere Wednesday, September 4 at 9 p.m. EST and episode 5 of "Broadchurch" will now premiere on Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST.

"Luther" is a crime drama series that stars Idris Elba as Luther, a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can't always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions.

"Broadchurch" centers on the investigation into the murder of a young boy in a British seaside town. Leading the investigation are two detectives – the strong yet compassionate local Detective Sergeant, Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman), and the by-the-book Detective Inspector Alec Hardy (David Tennant), Ellie’s newly appointed boss.

Here are the times and dates Luther:

Part 1 – Tuesday, September 3, 10 p.m. EST
Part 2 – Wednesday, September 4, 9 p.m. EST
Part 3 – Thursday, September 5, 10 p.m. EST
Part 4 – Friday, September 6, 10 p.m. EST

Here's a sneak peek of what to expect from the shows on September 4:

Luther: Part 2, 9 p.m.

Luther’s date with Mary and the promise of romance is interrupted by the news of another murder. The killer has struck again – the number of victims is escalating and fast. Faced with the repercussions of their public disagreement, Luther orders Ripley to investigate the murder of the internet tormentor (Jared Cass) on his own. Meanwhile, he throws himself into a mountain of cold case files, determined to connect the past and present in order to predict the fetishist’s next move. Can he win this battle of wits in time to prevent the next horror? Ripley must choose whether to turn a blind eye to Luther’s unorthodox policing or Go On record, while Stark’s obsession with Luther deepens and DCI Gray finds that the line between right and wrong is becoming increasingly blurred.

Broadchurch, episode 5, 10 p.m.

As Hardy and Ellie come under fire, the people of Broadchurch start to turn against each other. Will a vital new piece of evidence lead Ellie and Hardy to the killer?
