BBC’s 1919 Criminal Gang from Birmingham is getting a boost for another season. It seems like Peaky Blinders is getting renewed for its sixth season. Steven Knight, the creator of the show, said that he’s working on ‘two’ more seasons although the news hasn’t been confirmed by the BBC.
Since there is no official announcement from the channel, there is no date. But we can expect the show to come around late 2020 or early 2021. In a podcast, director Anthony Byrne said: “I have no idea when it would be out, maybe early 2021, something like that.” He also confirmed that shooting would kick off in early 2020.
About The Gang:
We can expect Cillian Murphy to be back as Tommy Shelby, Helen McCrory as Polly Gray, Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby, Sophie Rundle as Ada Thorne and Finn Cole as Michael Gray. Sam Claflin who plays Oswald Mosley might return too. The other cast includes Natasha O’Keeffe, Harry Kirton, Packy Lee, Jordan Bolger, Charlie Murphy, and Anya Tylor-Joe will join. Annabelle Wallis and Kate Phillips might join in too. According to Knight, Brad Pitt, Snoop Dogg, and A$AP Rocky have all been in contact
About The Plan:
Knight told BBC, “I’ve just finished writing series six, and it’s the best yet.” Looking at the climax, Season five takes place after the stock market crashed in 1929 and sees Tommy become Deputy Leader of the British Union of Fascists alongside leader Oswald Mosley. He later makes a failed assassination attempt after someone betrays him. We’ll get to know who was the snitch.
We also saw Tommy starting to fall apart as he pointed a gun at his head. We’ll see what happens there too. Michael is being considered an enemy for season six, according to Knight. We might get an introduction to Gina’s family. Knight also said that he wants to take the show through World War II, so there might be a movie to come too.
