It was expected that the series would arrive in 2020 or 2021, but as mentioned above, it was delayed due to the pandemic, and now it is in the process of editing.
The director Anthony Byrne told Digital Spy that we intended to start shooting in March 2020 and end in July, but it didn’t happen.
In addition to this, he said that we are sure that this season will be the best of all seasons, and the fans will love it.” Peaky is back and with a bang,” he added.
So, season 6 is around the corner, but we have to wt till spring 2022 because the editing process will take more than six months at least.
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Cast
From the BBC Sounds podcast, Sir Oswald Mosley, Sam Clafin, in real life, will be returning for the role in season 6 of Peaky Blinders. It was announced in Feb on the official account of Peaky Blinders on Twitter.
Along with this, Cillian Murphy is returning as Tommy too. Although he has been shown as putting a gun on his head, he has been shown in many recent set photos, and we can imagine that he is dead.
We are also sure that Wallis Annabelle Wallis as Grace Shelby will also return in season 6. The return of Tom Hardy as Alfie Solomons is not sure as he has been shot at the head in season 5.
In addition to this, Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby will also return, and along with him, Natasha O’Keeffe as Lizzie Stark’s return is also confirmed on Twitter.
According to Digital Spy, Charlie Murphy will not reappear in the next season.” It was great fun, and I am done now,” she added.
The scheming couple behind the failure of the assassination, Michael and Anya Tailor as Gina, is also expected to return. We have been put in great suspicion by the bid of Michael to take charge of Shelby Company Ltd.
As we know more about Gina but she will reveal her family in season 6. Byrne told it to GQ in August 2019. Further, he added that there is a lot to be revealed about Gina. She is a manipulator, and she is a player. She is part of a vast plain.
Moreover, Byrne also confirmed on the BBC that Stephen Graham would also be a part of the cast but not Al Capone.
The rumors about Julia Roberts are not confirmed officially, and it was also said Byrne while telling BBC that he is not sure about it. So we are not hopeful for an addition.
Other actors, including Rebecca Keatley, James Frecheville, Brits Amber Anderson, and Conrad Khan, will also be the cast members. This information is based on the activity of the Peaky Blinders on Twitter account.
As we have seen in the finale of season 5 that Emmett J.Scalan has betrayed Tommy; although it is not sure, it is pretty sure that he will be part of season 6. While speaking to Digital Spy, he added that the scripts of season 6 are so powerful.” I will never make you frustrated,” he promised.
Moreover, we are hopeful for Aunt Polly to reappear in season 6. Although the Showrunner Knight was optimistic for her survival, she passed before the end of the show.
Although it is uncertain how the show will respond to this loss through many tributes, they have been paid by the cast members and crew on social media.
What will Season 6 of Peaky Blinders be about?
As far as the setting is concerned, The Peaky Blinder season 6 will be in the 1930s, as we have witnessed in the 5th season.
Now we are moving to the next season of Peaky Blinders.
After the sad passing of Helen McCrory(poly Gray), there is no official announcement of changes in the cast regarding the death of her.
As in the last season, we have witnessed that Tommy shot down Michael and Alfie Solomons turned out to be alive.
In addition to this, Shelby’s plan to assassinate Mosley was failed.
So it is also going to be revealed that who has made this plan unsuccessful. Who was the rat behind this? Is it Solomons or Michael or his wife Gina? all these suspicions will be obliterated from the minds of the fans in this season.
However, we know from the detailed history that Mosley survived until the 1980s, so there is more political Drama.
The creator Stevens Knight told NME that season five was about fascism, nationalism, and racism in the 30, and much about the contemporary world. He added that “I will make these ideas the major themes of the upcoming season 6 and show how these ideas lead to the second world war”.
Moreover, Knight told NME that ” in season six we are concerned with the 30 sand we will explore all that has happened in this period of history. Everything is getting worse, and Tommy is in the center of all that.
I am writing a tragedy right now.”
Another thing that is expected to come is the Family of Gina. All her relations will be explored in season 6. This was announced by the director Anthony Byrne on BBC.
In addition to this, we will also see Tommy redemptive this season. He is confronting an evil that makes him decide if he is good or if he is terrible. Steven Knight told NME.
He further added that “the destination of the whole story is the second world war, and it will be revealed in this season. It is the family story between the wars, and I want to end it with Tommy being alright. I want him to be good and on the side of angles. But there will be a lot of darkness”.
So we will see Tommy as getting better and moving to the side of goodness.
Anthony Byrne told Digital Spy:” the very first image that you will see will be in the field where Tommy will have a gun on his head, and from there onward, we will further move.” So the story will start right from that point where season five was ended.
In addition, all the cast members, such as Sophie Rundle, who is Ada Shelby in the show, said it would be “all guns blazing.” He also added that “as it is the season, there will be many guns blazing. you know it is always Rock and Tact”.
Another thing that we would see in season 6 is the joining of Conrad Khan, who recently told NME that” it is a dream come true.”
Is there any Trailer of Peaky Blinders Season 6?
No trailer has been posted yet, although Steven Knight has confirmed that the shooting is already completed, and now editing is underway.
So we will soon watch the most loved European Drama, Peaky Blinder, on TV.
Will there be Season 7 Of Peaky Blinders?
The number of viewers of the show is increasing day by day in Europe. The number has tripled since the show started. So it’s not going to be ended with this season; instead, it will continue but in a different form.
Knight said that “the TV series is coming to an end, and the story will continue in another form.” He also added that “I want to end it with a movie.”
So fans! Don’t be disappointed; there is still much fun to come but differently.
Let’s first enjoy season 6 and then wait for the movie.
