The BBC has announced that the sixth series of the RTS award-winning period drama, Peaky Blinders, has returned to production.
It has also been confirmed that the series will be the drama’s last, although creator and writer, Steven Knight, has hinted at a spin-off: “While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”
The story of Tommy Shelby and his notorious family’s rise to power in post-First World War Birmingham has grown to become an international phenomenon since it first aired in 2013.
Series five set up the next with two bold cliffhangers, with Tommy seemingly poised to pull the trigger on himself and the foiling of the assassination plan on Oswald Mosley.
Creator and writer, Steven Knight, says: “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher.
“We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it.”
