Starring the iconic Cillian Murphy, Peaky Blinders is one of the most loved shows on Netflix and BBC One. The series has aired five seasons till now. Season 6 is in the works, and here is what we know about it.
But, before we begin about Season 6, we want to share the good news. Not only are we getting a Season 6, but a Season 7 may also be on the cards. One of the writers, Steven Knight, confirmed it would take seven seasons in total to complete the story. We, as fans are excited!
Peaky Blinders is a British crime drama series set in 1919, Birmingham, England.
The lockdown imposed due to the Coronavirus outbreak had intervened with the plans for production of the show. However, the government guidelines of the region where the filming has to take place has lifted some restrictions.

We are anticipating the return of all the main cast members (of course keeping in mind who is still alive on the show). However, there is one person, who is live on the show but may not reprise her role. We are talking about Helen McRory. We saw Aunt Polly tell Tommy that she was leaving the family business during the tense finale of Season 5. But, this could also mean that her role will become more prominent in the forthcoming seasons and the series will explore what she does after leaving the family business.
If the latter is to be the case, new additions to the cast are bound to occur. As of now, we don’t have any official input so we cannot say much.
We are anticipating that Gina (played by Anya Taylor-Joy) will play a significant role in the upcoming season. Anthony Byrne (who directed Season 5) told GQ, “She’s a player, she’s a manipulator. She’s part of a wider plan.”
Aunt Polly’s decision on quitting the family business may also be explored. That is all we can say on the storyline for now.
There is no word on the release date either. The previous seasons didn’t have a consistent pattern of releases so the premiere date for the next season is also highly unpredictable.
Also, although the green light has been given for the makers to return to filming, the lockdown restrictions haven’t been lifted entirely. This is bound to hamper with many details of filming. So, the release can be on a very later date.
We can expect the series to return by mid or late 2021.
However long it takes, we know it will be worth the wait!
