The creator of the fiction starring Cillian Murphy, Steven Knight, has revealed details about the project. The sixth season will premiere sometime in 2022.
Peaky Blinders, the successful fiction of the BBC starring Cillian Murphy, will premiere its sixth season early in 2022. But the life of Thomas Shelby it won’t end there. As its creator Steven Knight has advanced, Peaky Blinders will end the story about the Birmingham gang with a film whose shooting will begin in 2023.
“By order of the Peaky Blinders.” The true story of the Birmingham gang
According Variety, the film will follow the sixth installment of the series and will be written by Knight himself. “I’m going to start writing the film, which will be set and shot in Birmingham”, the creator has told in a panel during the London Film Festival. “And that will probably be the end of Peaky Blinders as we know it “. That “probably” indicates that not everything is settled with respect to the ending of the fiction, but also that the end is already something that is being contemplated.
Knight, on the other hand, does not rule out that new “series related” to the fictional universe will be made in the future. The creator has stressed that he prefers not to use the term ‘spin-offs’ to refer to these future projects. He has also advanced that he could “pass the baton” to someone else to supervise those fictions without him being part of the team.
As for the sixth season of Peaky Blinders, Knight has confirmed that it has already been shot. What is unknown is whether Helen McCrory, the one in charge of giving life to the aunt polly, recorded some scenes in the new installment. The actress, also known for playing Narcissa Malfioy in the film saga Harry Potter, passed away on April 16.
The fifth season of the series did not end too well for Thomas Shelby and his people. The leader of the Peaky Blinders, now into politics, created a plan to assassinate Oswald Mosley. The latter, played by Sam Claflin, was a British military and politician who founded the far-right party British Union of Fascists. A tip-off from Shelby’s strategy spoiled his plan with lethal and fatal consequences. How will you recover after being defeated?
