Knight said: “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the ongoing 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.
My plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie. That is what is going to happen.”
Caryn Mandabach (executive producer) said: “Along with our wonderful, supportive, partners at BBC and Netflix, we have been working diligently to ensure we can get Peaky safely back into production; the safety of our cast and crew is always our priority. 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.”
Also, Tommy Bulfin (executive producer for the BBC) said: “We are very excited that filming for Peaky Blinders has begun and so grateful to everyone for all their hard work to make it happen. Steve’s scripts for series six are truly remarkable and provide a fitting send-off which we are sure will delight fans.”
What’s going to happen in Peaky Blinders Season 6?
Tommy will come up against a new fascist foe. This character may be Mosley’s second wife Diana Guinness.
The director Anthony Byrne said: “There’s a great female character who is new, who is pretty dark. I haven’t seen a character like her in Peaky before. I won’t say who she is, but she certainly gives Tommy a run for his money. She challenges him in a different way basically. She’s certainly not a protagonist and I don’t know if she’s an antagonist.
It’s similar to Mosley… she has a similar ideology, and that’s challenging for any character like I’ve said before… he or she, they don’t have guns or a gang, but they have an ideology that’s like a virus and it’s more dangerous than anything. She’s a great character and we’re really close to casting her, as well.”
We also know that the first episode of season six will continue with the final frame of season five which Tommy with a gun to his head, from Byrne’s statement. Season six is currently in production.
