Peaky Blinders is officially back in production on its sixth and newly-confirmed final season.
In an accompanying statement, Peaky Blinders writer and creator Steven Knight confirmed the series will end with the next run of episodes, despite previously hinting there would “probably” be a seventh season.
But don’t worry Peaky Blinders fans, as Knight also confirmed that “the story will continue in another form” — so, it seems we’re getting that Peaky Blinders movie after all. Or, at least, a ballet or musical.
“Peaky is back and with a bang,” Knight said.
“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.”
Executive producer Caryn Mandabach added: “Thank you to all the Peaky fans who have been so unwaveringly supportive and patient.
“Steve’s scripts are incredible and mark the end of an epic story that has entranced audiences since it first started in 2013, but the world of Peaky Blinders will most definitely live on.”
Speaking to Digital Spy about a potential Peaky Blinders movie previously, Knight hinted that it could cover the Second World War.
He’s also previously promised redemption for Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) by the end of the series, but could that story be turned into a movie instead?
Peaky Blinders season 5 is on iPlayer and Netflix now. Obsessed With… Peaky Blinders – hosted by Digital Spy’s Editor, Laurence Mozafari – is available to listen to on BBC Sounds.
