The Peaky Blinders series will still be finished after the sixth season, despite some earlier announcements.
The creator of the Peaky Blinders series, Stephen Knight, explained that “the story will continue, but in a different form”.
As Knight said, the main “culprit” for that is the pandemic, in which a lot has changed, so the production concluded that six seasons is enough.
In the sixth season of the series, which follows Tommy Shelby and his family, Anthony Byrne will return as a director, and Nick Goding will produce. Tommy Bulfin, the executive producer for the BBC, said he was “very excited” that filming had begun and promised a truly extraordinary season and… a farewell that will delight fans”. He added that he was “very grateful to everyone for their hard work to make it happen.”
It is not yet known what “different form” it could be when it comes to the sequel, so there is a suspicion of either a spinoff or a feature to make Peaky Blinders movie.
