A few days ago, the BBC broadcast the final episode of the fifth season of ‘Peaky Blinders‘, which arrived in Spain from the hand of Netflix this past Friday, October 4. Many will be wanting to know what the future holds for Tommy Shelby and the rest of the clan and now we are going to review everything that is known about season 6 of ‘Peaky Blinders’.
All the main characters of the series that are still alive are confirmed for the sixth season, so you can expect to see again Murphy, Helen McCrory (Polly), Paul Anderson (Arthur), Sophie Rundle (Ada), Finn Cole (Michael), Sam Clafin (Mosley), Natasha O’Keeffe (Lizzie), Harry Kirton (Finn), Anya Taylor-Joy (Gina) – whose presence will be much greater in the following season – and Brian Gleeson (McCavern).
Probable but not certain is the return of Tom Hardy (Alfie), Annabelle Wallis (Grace) and Kate Phillips (Linda). Also, Knight confirmed the signing of Stephen Graham, but not to give life to Al Capone, as his initially rumored.
Anthony Byrne, director of the fifth season – and who will become the first director to direct two batches of episodes by also taking care of the sixth – announced in an interview with GQ that he will get to work seriously on the new episodes this month November and that the plan is to begin filming in early 2020.
The Release Date
We will have to be patient since the BBC has not made any announcement about when we will see the sixth season of ‘Peaky Blinders’. Byrne did venture to predict that the wait could be extended until early 2021. He did it without any resounding, so we hope we can see the new chapters a little earlier.
The Future Of The Series
Steven Knight commented at the time that the series will most likely have seven seasons and maybe a movie right after. Of course, his initial plan was to close ‘Peaky Blinders’ after five seasons, so there is always the possibility that things will end up changing. For now, he has already started talking about possible spin-offs .
