The fictional story is based on a real 19th-century urban youth gang who were active in the city from the 1890s to the early twentieth century.
Peaky Blinders season 5 is out and the British crime drama television series blowing away the record. While the fans are busy bingeing the latest exploits of Tommy Shelby and his family, the creators are also gearing up for Peaky Blinders season 6. The series is a set from Birmingham, England, and follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family in the aftermath of World War I.
The series stars Cillian Murphy as Tommy Shelby, the gang’s leader. Helen McCrory as Tommy’s aunt Elizabeth “Polly” Gray and Paul Anderson as his older brother Arthur Shelby. He serves as the gang’s second-most senior member. The 5th season shows the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929.
Steven Knight, the series creator in an interview all the way back in 2018 said that he was planning Peaky Blinders Season 6. With that, there is also the potential for Season 7. “We are definitely doing (series) six and we will probably do seven,” he said. “We’ve talked to (lead actor) Cillian Murphy and he’s all for it, and the rest of the principal cast are in for it.”
So far in Peaky Blinders Season 5
Peaky Blinders has seen its profile increase with each subsequent season. The first four episodes of the drama starring Cillian Murphy and Helen McCrory have averaged a massive 5.9 million in seven-day consolidated viewing across all screens.
The season 5 of Peaky Blinders starts with Black Tuesday 1929, kicking off the Great Depression. As crime sagas go, Steven Knight’s vision of the post-WWI rise of a scrappy Irish crime family, from the hard-scrabble slums of Birmingham to a seat in the English government. This has been one of the most deliberate and satisfying in recent memory.
At the end of Season 5, we see that Tommy’s big plan was to of his political rival and frenemy Oswald Mosley, a fascist smack-dab in the middle of Parliament who, as it turns out, is almost literally Hitler. Tommy broke an old war buddy Barney, an expert sniper, out of a psychiatric asylum so that he could shoot Mosley during a Nazi-esque rally. But the plan failed. Shelby ally Aberama Gold was also taken out by a masked, stabby assassin.
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Plot
There are no words on what the Shelby family will be coming with on our screens, but the current signs point to early 2021. Anthony Byrne, Peaky Blinders season 5 director confirms that the new season is already in the works and that he’ll be back on directing duty when production kicks back into gear next year.”I’m reading the scripts at the moment, which Steven is writing,” he told. “I start properly on series six in early November. Then we start shooting early next year, is the plan,” he added.
We will be able to see another season by the end of 2020, considering that Byrne spent sixteen months working on the show’s fifth outing. Considering that season five revolved around the 1929 stock market crash, there’s still plenty of ground to cover before the Shelbys reach the second World War. In Peaky Blinders Season 6 we’ll be looking at 1934 and things are going to be much worse. The drumbeat is getting louder, tensions are worse and Tommy is right in the middle of all that.
New cast joining Peaky Blinders Season 6
In the new season, we will see some new cast which includes Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) and Gina Grey (Anya Taylor-Joy). Byrne confirms in an interview saying, “Gina, and whoever her family is, will make themselves known, Oswald Mosley and some people around him and his world.”
There is speculation that Julia Roberts and Stephen Graham in talks to appear in the show as Gina’s mother and father. There are many questions on what we will get to see in Peaky Blinders season 6. One thing is clear that Season 6 will also be coming to another bitter end.
