The makers of hit BBC series ‘Peaky Blinders’ have announced that the sixth season will be its last.
‘Peaky Blinders’ tells the story of Tommy Shelby, the leader of a notorious gang, his exploits and his family’s rise to power in post-WWI Birmingham. It stars Cillian Murphy in the lead, along with Helen McCrory, Joe Cole, Paul Anderson, Sam Neill and Tom Hardy among others.
Production of the series had been halted for nearly a year due to the pandemic and was only recently resumed in the U.K.
The series may be coming to an end, but writer and creator Steven Knight revealed plans to continue the story of the Peaky Blinders “in another form”.
Knight said in a statement on Monday: “’Peaky’ is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher. We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”
