The imminent season 6 of ‘Peaky Blinders’ could see the Grace and Linda Shelby alongside Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy).
‘Peaky Blinders’ doesn’t have an official release for season 6. But fans have begun speculating what’s going to happen on the next segment. The way Cillian Murphy led ‘Peaky Blinders’ progressed last season, it seems clear that the onscreen characters Grace and Linda Shelby will make a comeback.

Cast updates of ‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 6
Cillian Murphy along with other actors like Paul Anderson, Harry Kirton, and Sophie Rundle, who played the roles of Arthur Shelby, Finn Shelby, and Ada Thorne respectively, will definitely return on ‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 6.
One of the most surprising people to endorse the show was Snoop Dogg, who was dubbed a “dedicated viewer”. Season 6 was supposed to bring Snoop Dog into the gang but due to some unstated reasons, it is not happening.
On the other hand, Annabelle Wallis has high chances of returning as Grace Burgess in ‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 6, as Tommy continued to hallucinate her throughout the previous season.
The actress Kate Phillips hinted about the return of her character Linda Shelby, “I’d like to think she’s going to be around and maybe there might be some reconciliation”. But we know that her fury is pretty palpable by the end of episode 5 so that we can expect her return.
There are more than one reasons for Grace and Linda to return on ‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 6 unless Mr Knight propels the show towards another angle.

Latest release date updates of the imminent season
‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 6 might have a time jump from season 5, according to various British newspaper reports.
According to Steven Knight, the showrunner, Thomas Shelby led gang is fast progressing towards the Second World War. He said, “We’ll be looking at 1934 and things are worse”.
He went on to say, “The drumbeat is getting louder, tensions are worse, and Tommy is right in the middle of all that. Again, it will be an exploration of what was going on in the ’30s and how certain things transpired”.
‘Peaky Blinders’ was renewed for season 6 way back, but the production got delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The global entertainment industry has come to a standstill with an unfathomable financial loss. Coronavirus being one of the reasons for the delay, we need to wait longer for the sixth season.
We don’t have a release date for ‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 6 as of yet. It may be delayed to 2022 due to the current crisis.
Character updates of Grace and Linda Shelby on ‘Peaky Blinders’
Thomas Shelby fell in love with the undercover agent Grace Burgess and they both got married. On season 3 episode 2, Grace wore the sapphire that Tommy gave her in the Shelby Charity foundation dinner. Later on, Tatiana told Tommy that the sapphire Grace is wearing was cursed by a gipsy.
When Tommy attempts to convince Grace to take off the necklace, a man shot Grace in the upper chest. Arthur, John, and Finn beat the man to death as Tommy kept shouting for an ambulance. Unfortunately, Grace died.
On season 5, Thomas experienced hallucinations of her which will continue in season 6, if the story follows from there.
‘Peaky Blinders’ also saw Linda Shelby (Kate Phillips) shot by Polly after threatening to kill Arthur. While Linda survives, she goes away from the Shelby family.
After being saved by Tommy and Polly by doing quick dining room surgery, Linda tells Arthur that shooting him “would’ve been a kindness”, reflecting Arthur and Tommy’s mantra from the start of the season.
We saw Linda drive off from Tommy’s house, albeit nursing a bullet wound, while Arthur forlornly watched her leave. We want to see if Linda will reconcile with Arthur in the next season.
We still don’t know for sure if Grace and Linda would be a part of ‘Peaky Blinders’ season 6. What do you think is going to happen? Let us know in the comments box below.
