Since season 5 of Peaky Blinders ended on a major cliffhanger, we can hang tight for a new season to hit our screens very soon. And to add to this exciting news, we can also hope to see movies and spin-offs based on this show as well!
All you Peaky Blinders fans, rejoice! It won’t be long before we get to see a fresh new season of this BAFTA award-winning crime drama. Whoever your favorite Shelby is, you can hang tight for yet another thrilling ride of this series.
- When exactly the next season will be out?
- So what about the spin-off?
- What to expect from season 6 and 7?
And it looks like the fun won’t be ending at just season 6. According to the Deadline, the creator of the show Steven Knight has hinted at least 7 seasons to wrap up the storyline satisfactorily. However, there’s no official announcement (about season 7) from the producers yet.
But when exactly the next season will be out?
Various sources have informed that season 6 was under production, but the pandemic has delayed its progress indefinitely. So it might take some time to unite back with the Shelby family. The news was officially announced on the show’s Instagram page
So what about the spin-off?
As reported by the RadioTimes, Steven Knight has hinted on a spin-off and a potential movie too, “I’m writing series six at the moment. That’s almost done. Then I’m going to do series seven, then I’m looking at spin-offs, maybe a movie. It’s up to us. It’s up to the people involved.”
However, don’t expect any prequel on the series as Knight continues, “You can’t kill a character who can show up in the series. The problem with prequels is you’re limiting yourself as to where it can go.”
Well, we would love to see the sequel spin-offs for sure.
What to expect from season 6 and 7?
The last season had ended on an interesting cliffhanger and a lot of drama such as traitors being revealed and Tommy’s failed attempt to kill Mosley.
So who could have betrayed the mastermind Tommy Shelby and hampered his plans to bring down Mosley? There are a lot of questions that need to be answered from the violent and dark finale of season 5.
We might finally get to know how Mosley ended up escaping Tommy’s scheming, and find out who the person was behind ruining Shelby’s plans. The biggest cliffhanger of all was Tommy pointing a gun on his head. But of course, there’s a fat chance that we’ll get to see him alive in the next season, so let’s not get too distressed about that.
Then there’s Gina. There’s a lot more that will be revealed about Gina Gray and her family, and whether they’ll be successful in taking down the Shelby family once and for all. We’ll find out.
Speaking of season 7, while it’s still a long way off, we can still speculate a couple of things. The writers themselves have dropped hints, giving us a lot more insight into the future season. The show will possibly cover the beginnings of World War Two as the series reaches the 1930’s period.
According to the Express— “War has always played a big role in five series of Peaky Blinders, with all of the Shelby men returning from the horrors of World War One and dealing with the aftershocks. As the years approach the beginning of World War Two, those involved in Peaky Blinders have been vocal about wanting to cover the major event.”
The writers have indeed talked about this to the fans on Reddit, saying how the show will most likely explore World War Two. So let’s gear up for a fresh dose of drama soon enough!
