Peaky Blinders Season 6’s filming has almost wrapped and ever since there has been an influx of information about it. In the past week, we have been blessed with more pictures than we ever got in a whole year. And it is safe to say that the entire fandom is thriving! However, the sad news is that Steven Knight has confirmed that the 6th season will also be the last to ever come. So, that is a bummer! Nothing to fret about because considering the solid fan base of the show we are sure that in the future the show runners will definitely produce a spin off. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves and stick to the Peaky Blinders Season 6.
Steven Knight in an interview said:
“We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”
The crime period piece which first debuted in 2013 revolves around the notorious Shelby family which were at their peak back in the 1800s and 1900s. The exceptional cinematography and the brilliant British accent plays a major role in its rise to fame. And over the course of 5 seasons, the show has portrayed some major historical events but they did not always get a positive response!
Fast forward to the 6th season below you’ll find everything related to the 6th season even the leaks and rumors. So, let’s dive right into it!
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Release Date
The 5th season of the show took approximately 13 months for the entire production phase. It aired first on BBC One with a new episode dropping every week and it later premiered on Netflix. The 6th installment will also keep up with the same pattern.
However there is no specific release date for the upcoming season so far. And COVID-19 is to blame here. The filming for the 6th season was supposed to begin in mid 2020 but due to the pandemic the original schedule had to be abandoned. The show runners began the filming in early 2021 and they wrapped everything up by the end of May. So, the 6th installment will release somewhere in early or mid 2022 and it will consequently premiere on Netflix once all the episodes have aired on BBC One.
As Peaky Blinders Season 6 is the concluding chapter expect a lot of cameo appearances from those actors which departed the show in earlier seasons. Who are they? It is unknown so far! The main characters will definitely come back for the last season. The following list contains the confirmed cast members of the upcoming installment:
- Cillian Murphy as Thomas “Tommy” Shelby
- Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby Jr.
- Ned Dennehy as Charlie Strong
- Benjamin Zephaniah as Jeremiah ‘Jimmy’ Jesus
- Sam Claflin as Sir Oswald Mosley
- Harry Kirton as Finn Shelby
- Natasha O’Keeffe as Lizzie Shelby
Other important cast members include; Packy Lee (Johnny Dogs), Tom Hardy (Alfred “Alfie” Solomons), Finn Cole (Michael Gray), Kate Phillips (Linda Shelby), Daryl McCormack (Isiah Jesus), and Anya Taylor-Joy (Gina Gray)! Nothing promising can be said about other supporting characters.
As far as dead characters are concerned they might return in flashback scenes but it is not confirmed yet. The trend of adding new characters to every season will also be followed in the 6th iteration. Some new cast members are; Conrad Khan, James Frecheville, Amber Anderson, and Stephen Graham. Their character details are not disclosed yet.
The 6th season will resume the story from where the 5th installment ended. According to Anthony the opening shot will be Tommy holding a gun to his head:
“It picks up directly. So, the very first image you will see will be back in that field… Tommy, with a gun to his head. Then, we will move on from there, we resolve that amazing moment… It’s great.”
Tommy’s plan to kill Oswald failed because someone snitched. Who leaked the plan? This is still unknown so the 6th season will definitely cover this bit. Gina’s entire family will be introduced in the upcoming season and they will play important roles in the story line.
By the end of the 5th season the political situation was very alarming and World War 2 might finally happen in Peaky Blinders Season 6. We will get to know more about the story line of the 6th season once the show runners disclose the much awaited plot synopsis!
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Trailer
There is no confirmed release date for the upcoming season naturally there is no trailer for it either. But don’t be disappointed because who knows maybe it might be just a few weeks away from us!
Fans were left heartbroken after the show runners confirmed the 6th season to be the last of the franchise. However, we still have hope left because pressure from fans can change the decisions. So, don’t lose hope!
