Peaky Blinders is a British period crime drama television series. Set in Birmingham, England, Peaky Blinders tells the story of the Shelby Clan led by Thomas ‘Tommy” Shelby. The show also reflects on the exploitation of the Shelby family after the First World Ward. And how they become a national terror.

Peaky Blinders made its debut in 2013 on BBC Two in the United Kingdom. However, season 2 was released originally on BBC One. Meanwhile, people outside the UK can stream Peaky Blinders season 1 to 5 on Netflix. The show is on its way to release the sixth season. It would have been released, but due to the COVID-19, season 6 is pushed back. Fortunately, Peaky Blinders season 6 has started its production. 

Thus, it will be released soon. And after the show concludes, we will get served with another great storyline in the form of a featured film.

Creator Steve Knight’s Plan For The Movie

While discussing with Deadline, the creator of Peaky Blinders, Steven Knight, opened up regarding his plans for the movie. Knight said the movie is going to happen, but “in a different form.” We are still unaware of the “form,” but we know it is going to as big as the series.

Speaking in more detail, he said that COVID changed their plans. But, he also confirmed that from the very beginning, he wanted to end Peaky Blinders with a film. And that is exactly what is going to happen.

Even though Knight is opening about the movie right now, a film was always on his mind. Fans have known about the film for a long time now. Nothing about the movie is in action right now, and it is completely explanatory, why that is. But, that does not stop the fans from admiring it. As Knight has previously said, Peaky is “a beast that will not die.” We couldn’t agree more.

Peaky Blinders has a huge fan base. Fans from around the world love the concept and story of the show. Not to forget, it has also earned a BAFTA for ‘Best Drama Series’ and many other nominations in different categories. Moreover, the team has tie- in books, a clothing line, an original soundtrack, and even a video game.

Hence, we already know that the Peaky movie will be a big shot on the Boxoffice; Especially, if the same cast decides to showcase their brilliant performance.

Peaky Blinders Season 6: What to expect?

Undoubtedly, we are feeling jolly with the news of the movie. But, we still have a whole season to witness. Peaky Blinders season 6 is currently in production. Earlier, Paul Anderson, who plays Arthur Shelby, gave us a hint via IG post. And now the official team has given the signal that Peaky Blinder season 6 is in the making. You can check the IG post here.

The executive producer, Caryn Mandabach told Deadline, that season 6 is going to be the best one yet.

But, we believe it’s worth the wait.
