Peaky Blinders is a crime drama that has captivated the attention of millions during its five-season series — present company included. So it should come as small to no surprise that Peaky Blinders season 6 is at the novels. And based on what’s been revealed thus far, we are all in for one hell of an installment (according to the standard ).
When is season 6 coming out?
On January 18, 2021, the official Peaky Blinders Twitter account shared with the news that the show had officially begun filming on the sixth time. While there’s no word yet on precisely when the Shelby family will soon be returning to our screens, considering that returning series director Anthony Byrne spent sixteen months working on the show’s fifth outing, it seems improbable that we’ll see a new play in Birmingham before late 2021 or early 2022.
What has the cast stated about Peaky Blinders season 6?
The truth is, not very much – supposedly Seven Knight keeps his cards very near his chest. However, Finn Cole, who plays Michael, lately revealed Polly’s split loyalties between her sons will likely play a big role in the upcoming series.
“It is so tough to discuss it, or perhaps forecast what might happen, because even someone who is on the inside like me — I can not even predict what Steve [Knight’s] going to perform, since his mind is so much more detailed and experienced and all those things.
“So I wouldn’t want to state, but I know that that’s likely to be a terrific storyline, the sort of triangle between me, Tommy and Polly. I know that that’s going to be a wonderful storyline, and I can not wait to get to it with these two.”
Filming was due to start in March 2020 and the show would have likely aired in ancient 2021, but production was suspended due to this coronavirus pandemic. “We’re so near the start of filming season 6. Months of hard work by our very talented, dedicated and hardworking team,” Byrne said of these delays.
“Sets were constructed, costumes were created. Cameras and lenses tested. Locations were booked. Each of the prep was done. It’s a real shame to not have the ability to make it for you at this time.”
At the beginning of November, Paul Anderson, who plays Arthur Shelby Jr, suggested that the series could be back sooner than we think.
Posting artwork of Arthur on his Instagram webpage, the 42-year-old wrote: “Season six #comingfknsoon. Thanking you all for the wait, it will be worth it.”
On January 18th it had been confirmed filming season six – the last season – had finally resumed.
