Season 6 of Peaky Blinders is in the works, but it will be the show’s final season. According to its creator Steven Knight, the “narrative will continue in another way.”
Season five of Peaky Blinders saw highs (welcome back Alfie Solomons), lows (RIP Aberama Gold), and everything in between.
So there you have it: all you need to know about Season 6 of Peaky Blinders.
Peaky Blinders is a Steven Knight-created historical crime drama television series set in the United Kingdom. The series is set in Birmingham, England, and chronicles the adventures of the Shelby criminal family in the immediate wake of World War I. The fictitious family is partially based on the same named real life urban youth gang that operated in the city from the 1890s to the early twentieth century.
Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, and Paul Anderson star as Tommy Shelby, Elizabeth “Polly” Gray, and Arthur Shelby, respectively, in Peaky Blinders, which boasts an ensemble cast. At various points during the series, Sam Neill, Tom Hardy, Paddy Considine, Adrien Brody, Aidan Gillen, Annabelle Wallis, Charlotte Riley, Sam Claflin, and Anya Taylor-Joy have recurring parts.
The show first aired on BBC Two on September 12, 2013, until the fourth series, when it was moved to BBC One for the fifth and forthcoming sixth series.
Knight acknowledged his “ambition of making it a narrative of a family caught between two wars, and by concluding it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham” on June 25, 1940, after the show won Drama Series at the BAFTA TV Awards in 2018.
The fifth season debuted on BBC One on August 25, 2019 and concluded on September 22, 2019. Netflix has secured the rights to release Peaky Blinders in the United States and throughout the world as part of an agreement with Weinstein Company and Endemol.

Cillian Murphy (Tommy Shelby) is an undeniably gifted actor who plays with his expressions and turns everyone into a fan, especially when his wife (Grace) dies.
