Steven Knight created Peaky Blinders, a British crime drama television series. It is set in Birmingham, England, and recounts the exploits of the Peaky Blinders criminal group in the immediate aftermath of WWI. The fictitious gang is based on a real-life urban youth gang with the same name that operated in the city from the 1880s through the 1910s.

The Final Scene of Peaky Blinders Has Been Revealed
The truth about Tommy Shelby’s health condition was disclosed in the Peaky Blinders finale, allowing him to avoid death once more.
Sir Oswald Mosley and Lady Diana Mitford conspired to falsify his tuberculoma diagnosis, which turned out to be true (Sam Claflin and Amber Anderson).
Tommy in his trailer park moved the gun away from himself after seeing his late daughter Ruby and deciding not to pull the trigger.
He then comes upon a burnt photograph of Mosley’s wedding, which includes his doctor (Aneurin Barnard). Tommy didn’t have a terminal illness, and the whole thing was a fascist ruse.
In the last minutes of the episode, Tommy confronted Dr Holford, but he chose to spare his life and rode away on his horse, much like he did in the first season. He arrived on a black horse and rode away on a white one, symbolising his transformation into a new man.
Tommy appeared to appoint Duke his new heir elsewhere in the climax, establishing him as a significant component in any Peaky Blinders film. At a goodbye supper for the Shelby clan in the woods, we noticed him whispering to Duke.
He delegated authority to Arthur, Linda, and Charles, but Duke – sporting a sharp Peaky haircut – appears to be the gang’s next in line.
In the Sixth and Final Season of Peaky Blinders, Who Dies?
Bloodshed and gunshots were unsurprisingly present in the final episode of Peaky Blinders, although there were fewer deaths than many might have predicted.
In this episode, there were three notable fatalities. To begin with, ‘Black Cat’ Billy Grade (Emmett J Scanlan) was assassinated for betraying the Shelbys.
Isiah (Daryl McCormack) killed Billy when he and Finn Shelby were attacked at Tommy’s house clearance. Finn was spared, but for his role in the betrayal, he has been expelled from the family.
Arthur (Paul Anderson) exacted vengeance on Laura ‘Captain Swing’ Mckee (Charlene McKenna) for the assassination of Aunt Polly (Helen McCrory) by drawing her soldiers into a trap and killing them with mustard gas. Arthur exclaimed, “Rest in peace, Poll,” as he exacted sweet vengeance.
Michael Gray (Finn Cole), who had finally seen Tommy again in the finale, made his exit as well. Michael tried to blow up Tommy’s car with a bomb, but Johnny Dogs swapped the explosive at the last minute. Tommy shoots Michael in the eye, fulfilling Aunt Polly’s prophecy of a conflict and one of them dying.
What Is the Plot of The New Peaky Blinders Movie?
Steven Knight, the show’s creator, has kept little information about the film under wraps, presumably to avoid ruining the show’s ending.
However, Knight acknowledged in an interview with the Radio Times that the film’s intention was to take the Peaky Blinders gang into World War II.
“I know what’s going to happen in those stories, and it’s about an undiscovered story from WWII in which the Peakys will play a part.”
