Peaky Blinders Season 6 will soon be in the works, and fans will surely get to see more of Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy) and the rest of the cast.
Peaky Blinders Season 6 now officially gets the green light and Paul Anderson, who plays as Arthur Shelby, has some update about it. The series creator and writer, Steven Knight, also revealed his plans for the show’s future beyond the upcoming season.
The future of the show beyond Season 6
In an interview with Knight, via Devdiscourse, he revealed he wanted to keep the show’s story going until the beginning of World War II.
“I’m planning to keep the story going until the first air raid siren of the Second World War,” he said. “Then it will be a true story of a family between the wars.”
This event would feature two seasons of the show – Seasons 6 and 7.
“I’m pretty close to completing Season 6 in terms of scripts, and then we’ll shoot that,” Knight continued. “And then I will embark on Season 7.”
If the show’s energy would continue to grow and the show’s reception is still positive, Knight would make a decision from here.
“We’ll think about how the story can continue in other forms,” he explained.
Season 5 cliffhanger
Peaky Blinders Season 6 will continue where the previous season left off. To recall, Season 5 ended with a major cliffhanger, showing Tommy pointing a gun to his head.
“It picks up directly. So, the very first image you will see will be back in that field,” series director Anthony Bryne revealed. “Tommy with a gun to his head, then, we will move on from there, we resolve that amazing moment – it’s great.”
Season 6 production update
Meanwhile, Anderson gave a major production update for Peaky Blinders Season 6.
“Season 6 #comingsoon,” he shared on Instagram with a photo of his character’s caricature. “Thanking you all for the wait; it will be worth it.”
The sixth season was supposed to begin filming earlier this year but was later delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Sets were built, costumes were made. Cameras and lenses tested. Locations were booked,” Byrne said, per Digital Spy. “All the prep was done. It’s a real shame not to be able to make it for you [right now].”
As the show was teased to begin filming soon, Byrne revealed Peaky Blinders Season 6 could come in late 2021 or early 2022.
