What to expect from Peaky Blinders Season 6

The trailer is full of World War Two imagery, including various Nazi flags and emblems.

We already saw Tommy getting wrapped up with the Nazi Party in Season 5, so it’s clear that the events of World War Two will likely play a key role in the final season.

The TV show's creator, Steven Knight, confirmed in an interview with Empire Magazine that the sixth season will “go into and beyond the Second World War”.

Other than that, we can see from the trailer that there will be more guns, more striding down grimy streets, and more wild nights for Arthur Shelby.

Ada Thorne seems to be stepping into more of an action role, spotted with a handgun on several occasions.

In a voiceover, Tommy Shelby also tells the family that this “one last deal” will be “the end of us”, highlighting the high stakes of the final season of the show.

Who is in the Peaky Blinders Season 6 cast?

Cillian Murphy will be reprising the lead role of Tommy Shelby, opposite Sam Claflin’s villain, Oswald Mosley following a failed assassination attempt in Season 5.

Other returning actors include Tom Hardy as Jewish mob leader Alfie Solomons, Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby, Sophie Rundle as Ada Thorne, Harry kirton as Finn Shelby, Anya Taylor Joy as Gina Gray, and Finn Cole’s Michael Gray.

Sadly the passing of the late Helen McCrory means that Polly Gray will not be returning to the show.

It will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer, but it’s not clear whether all the episodes will drop at the same time, or whether they will be released on a weekly basis.

Both BBC iPlayer and Netflix have all five seasons of Peaky Blinders so far, so you can catch up on the gang-inspired drama before the sixth and final season kicks off later this year.

When is Peaky Blinders Season 6’s release date?

Peaky Blinders will return on Sunday, February 27th at 9pm on BBC One.

There’s no confirmation of exactly how many episodes to expect, either, but if the upcoming release matches the pattern of six episodes per season, as in previous seasons, we can expect at least six episodes.

Episode one of the new season will be called ‘Black Day’.
