But perhaps, this time fans’ patience is being tested for real. Amid several lockdowns and the ‘work-from-home‘ policy noticing a surge, people are switching to staying indoors as a safer bet amidst coronavirus spread.
The only business booming right now is either face masks and hand sanitizers or digital streaming platforms.
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Release Date Delayed
The fifth season of Peaky Blinders debuted on BBC last year. And it was therefore anticipated that the announcement for Peaky Blinders Season 6 release date will be made by April 2020.
However, amid several lockdowns and a delay in the shoot has caused the production of Peaky Blinders to shut down. Therefore, as it was earlier reported that Peaky Blinders Season 6 release date will be out officially by April, it may not be the case now.
As the previous season premiered in August 2019, and so the cast and crew of Peaky Blinders had precisely four months to wrap up the shoot, it will not be the case now. Clearly, the coronavirus scare has let to the delay in the shoot, therefore, there will be no announcement on the Peaky Blinders Season 6 Release Date until August 2020.
Thus, fans will have to wait longer for their favourite show to air on the BBC.
The Impending Doom
It’s clearly not an update to rejoice upon especially when the entire world is under a pseudo-lockdown and people are remotely working from home, or in quarantine.
Hence, switching to their television sets or digital subscription apps was all the source of entertainment that they were left with.
But now, that option too seems to be fading away as the good shows and fresh seasons are being put on hold due to the coronavirus.
What else do we know about Peaky Blinders Season 6 so far
The upcoming season of the period-cum-crime drama would have changed the course of Tommy’s life showing new and empowering developments. After a certain row of downs, the director of the series had categorically finalized on showing improvements in Shelby’s life. Thus, noticing a period of ups in Shelby’s life after hitting rock-bottom is an interesting arc for the show’s sixth season.
What happened in the previous season
In the previous season, fans witnessed their favourite character in the show, Tommy Shelby pressing a gun against his forehead. It was very likely for him to press the trigger; in response to his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the other tormenting circumstances that Shelby has gone through in his recent past. From facing a backlash in his political career to getting backstabbed by one of his own teammates, Shelby had too much to go through in the fifth season of Peaky Blinders.
