It’s finally here, lads! Peaky Blinders, the historical British crime drama, has finally been given a release date for its sixth and final season. The return of the famous series was announced and celebrated with a massive 13-meter mural painted on the side of a building in Digbeth, Birmingham – the Shelby family’s hometown. Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy), the series’ protagonist, is depicted in the picture wearing his characteristic grey flat cap, which conceals deadly blades. Last Orders was the name given to the mural.
Despite the Season 5 cliffhanger, Tommy will return to the screen to find a way for the Peaky Blinders to eventually find a way out of their perilous and sometimes deadly life of illegality. Tom Hardy reprises his role as Jewish leader Alfie Solomons, Paul Anderson reprises his role as Arthur Shelby, Finn Cole reprises his role as Aunt Polly’s son Michael Gray, Anya Taylor-Joy reprises her role as Michael’s wife Gina Gray, and Sophie Rundle reprises her role as Tommy and Arthur’s sister Ada. Sadly, actress Helen McCrory died of breast cancer on April 16 of last year, leaving Polly Shelby’s fate unknown for the time being. Stephen Graham and Conrad Khan are two new characters we may expect to see in Season 6.
Will Tommy be able to redeem himself and his family at a time when the Peaky Blinders are disintegrating and its members are turning against one another? To top things off, as seen in the teaser, the emergence of Nazism in the run-up to World War II will almost certainly result in foreign war, complicating our main plotlines. Fans will have to wait until the new season to find out the answers to all of their questions. The good news is that the show’s premiere isn’t far away! The Sixth Season will premiere on BBC One on Sundays on February 27 and will consist of six episodes. Netflix, which has been airing the series since the first season, has yet to announce a release date for the final season.
