During a recent interview with BBC Breakfast, screenwriter Steven Knight discussed the sixth season of Peaky Blinders. He also encouraged fans to expect the unexpected. He said, “There’s lots of twists and turns and he’s up against some very, very powerful enemies. But his biggest enemy is himself.” Giving Peaky Blinders viewers a probable verbal hint of the final season’s major shock.
According to Knight, the series will also regard whether Thomas Shelby will be redeemed. In the season five finale, we saw Thomas Shelby with a gun to his head.
Helen McCrory’s death has hit the Peaky Blinders family hard
Both her fans and the Peaky Blinders cast and crew have felt Helen McCrory’s loss. When asked how the show managed without such a powerful character, Steven responded, “In terms of the character, although Polly is gone, her strength and influence and energy remains throughout the series.” Sophie Rundle, who plays Tommy’s sister Ada, recalls being “very intimidated” when she first met Helen but grew close to her co-star. Suffice to say, McCroy’s depart was shocking to the actor.
Cillian Murphy has promised that the final instalment will be a tribute to Helen McCrory
The final season, according to actor Cillian Murphy, will be “a tribute” to the actress, who kept her breast cancer diagnosis a secret from fans.
