Peaky Blinders, one of the most critically acclaimed shows, has now become a modern-day sensation. Fans all across the world have become a part of the Shelby family. For some, this show has become a style statement. With that in mind, it is time for the final season for Tommy Shelby and the gang to come alive once more in the city of Birmingham. The good news is that the shooting for the final season has been all wrapped up.

The season is set to premiere anytime soon. As of now, no official announcements have been made as to when the release date is going to come out. Up until the 5th season, a lot has taken place after the long-lived rivalry with the Changretta family. Some landmark characters are bound to return for the final season as Tommy Shelby comes to the end with his story.

Season 6, the Last Chapter

With 5 seasons of absolute madness and suspense, the show has formed a great war storyline for the fans to enjoy. Cillian Murphy has vastly done himself justice by becoming a fan favorite. What started for Murphy as a one-time deal, has now lasted 5 seasons. It’s surprisingly beautiful to see his evolution from Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight Trilogy’, from where he played Scarecrow as a side-line antagonist, to be the one man standing as Thomas Shelby of the Peaky Blinders.

Up till Season 5, we saw that the season started with the famous Wall Street Crash of 1929, which made Shelby worry about his business to such heights, that he had to return to Birmingham himself. After he lost the love of his life, Grace at his own wedding reception, he was then left shook by how to handle his life and his family business. Meanwhile, Arthur and Finn have been trying to move up in the business as well.

The last season also dealt with Oswald Mosley and how he held a rally for his elections. The rally left Tommy in disgusting aftermath as he could not take his own loss. The season ended on a desperate and suspenseful note, where Tommy was at the edge of his days, right in the middle of the morning mist, where he was screaming as we pointing a pistol to his head, intent on committing suicide, due to the loss of Grace. After that, the final scene was blacked out, leaving the audience in suspense.

New Cast Member Joining In!

For the final season, a new cast member is joining in, and maybe the most major cast member addition, which is none other than Stephen Graham! For those who may not know Stephen so well, a few years ago recently, he was a part of one of the most eminent Hollywood movies in this past decade i.e., Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’. He took on the role of Anthony “Tony Pro” Provenzano. He had a very pivotal scene in the movie with actors Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, where he offers Pacino’s character, Jimmy Hoffa, his advertising services.

Graham’s Setup

Graham is also set to step foot in the MCU with his role in the upcoming Venom movie, featuring Tom Hardy as the loving Eddie Brock. Speaking of Tom Hardy, the audience is also looking forward to his return to the show as the daring Alfie Solomons, who was one of the most impressionable cast members of the show. We saw in the final episode how Tommy travels to Margate to meet with Alfie so that they can come up with a plan for Mosely’s assassination at his own rally.

Although Graham’s role hasn’t been officially disclosed to the public, it has been confirmed that he will be joining the cast for the final season of the show. Other than that, we are thrilled to see Stephen Graham in action for this series and see what is the kind of impact he will leave on the audience.

During the many press conferences for the show, it was once rumored that the show cast the infamous comedian, Rowan Atkinson, who was set to play the role of Adolf Hitler in the show. But then those rumors were then claimed to be false, as the director Steven Knight rejected those claims. There is no involvement of Rowan Atkinson in the show whatsoever.

R.I.P. Helen McCrory

We hope that this season will definitely serve as a memory to Polly Gray, as the one and only Helen McCrory, recently passed away. Polly was definitely one of the most iconic characters of the lot. Her influence in the show was strong, as she was a mother figure to Tommy Shelby and his brothers, Arthur, John, and Finn. In the 5th season, we saw that Aunt Polly resigned from the company, and then she openly cast herself out of the Shelby family. But even throughout major parts of the show, Polly Gray had a sort of dominance and power that was like no ever.

When it came to dealing with the notorious cop, Major Chester Campbell, then Polly’s character was persuasive at the time, whereas she stopped Major Campbell from capturing and arresting Thomas Shelby. All in all, it seems that Polly’s character will not be a part of the major cast anymore. But most importantly, Polly Gray will be in all of our hearts! Rest in peace, Helen McCrory.

A Peaky Blinders Movie!

Now, when it was decided how many seasons the show will have, the creators came up with the problem of deciding whether they want to have six seasons or seven. Eventually, the creator and director of the series, Steven Knight concluded that there will be only six seasons for the show and after that, it all comes to an end. But another news was announced, which served as a cherry on top.

After the sixth season, a final Peaky Blinders movie is set to be made and will be produced in place of the seventh season. This is a movie that will settle the affairs of all the members of the Shelby family and may answer multiple questions regarding singular character arcs.

With all this exciting news in mind, there is too much excitement for the fans to contain. Now, we can only wait for the official dates for the final season so that a final farewell of the Shelby universe is in motion. The show has run on for 6 long seasons! By order of the Peaky Blinders, it’s time to come back for one more fling!
