With more than a year behind schedule due to the epidemic, the sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders began in the UK on Monday (18th). In an interview with the Deadline website, series creator Steven Knight said that the closure would be accompanied by a feature film.
“Kovid changed our plans. But I can say that from the beginning my plan was to end Peaky with a film. That’s what will happen,” Knight said.
The story of Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) and his family coming to power in Birmingham after World War I began airing on the BBC in 2013 and won the world on Netflix. The saga will last until the seventh season, but production delays anticipate its end.
Details on the outcome of the Peaky Blinds gang are yet to be revealed. Knight said the seeds were planted in season five and “that fascism is happening”.
Earlier, the series creator had already stated that he wanted to “rehabilitate” the character and his plan was to end the series with the start of World War II to create a story about people in the midst of the Peaky Wars. There is still no preview for the final season premiere.
