Peaky Blinders has become one of the most well-known shows worldwide. The show boasts excellent performances from an amazing and charismatic ensemble cast, stylish cinematography, good screenplay, and direction. The series has also earned acclaim for focusing on the part of England and English history seldom explored on television. Cillian Murphy’s character, Thomas Shelby, is now a renowned character and also an audience favorite.
The show is a British period crime drama and has been created by Steven Knight. Place in Birmingham, England, the series follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family in the direct aftermath of the First World War. The literary family is loosely based on a real 19th-century urban youth group of the exact same name, who was busy from town by the 1890s into the early twentieth century.
The series first surfaced in 2013 and has enjoyed an unbeaten run of five seasons. The great news for all the lovers is that the series has officially been renewed for a sixth season.
Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Finn Cole, and Sophie Rundle are coming together with Natasha O’Keeffe, Harry Kirton, Packy Lee, Jordan Bolger, Charlie Murphy, Emmett J Scanlan, and Annabelle Wallis.
The fifth season finale ended on a gloomy and dark cliffhanger as Tommy’s PTSD worsened, and he held a gun to his head, seemingly prepared to pull the trigger. Throughout the fifth season, Tommy had several hallucinations of his deceased wife, Grace, that attempts to convince her to take his own life. The end was very ambiguous for viewers. The sixth time is expected to take off from this very scene where the fifth season finished.
The filming for the sixth time was scheduled to begin in March 2020 and wrap up in July. But the COVID-19 pandemic compelled the creation to be postponed. There is an official statement on when production will resume. Maybe we may not even know when shooting will continue, and they might finish filming secretly without any notification.
There is, unfortunately, no official launch date given the current scenario. The series is expected to launch in late 2021 or ancient 2022.
