About Peaky Blinders Season 6
Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy had told the press that the show will be back as soon as possible, “causing chaos and knocking heads as usual”, thus confirming a season 6 of the show.
In fact, if sources are to be believed the popular BBC crime drama show has three more seasons in their plan. The drama, with a gripping storyline and a wonderful cast headed by Murphy, has successfully secured a strong and growing fanbase over the five seasons. Besides securing a dedicated viewership, the show has also been widely acclaimed as arguably one of the best British crime series and has received multiple awards including BAFTA.
The Plot of Peaky Blinders Season 6
The season 5 ended at a very critical place in the plot. Very unusual, Thomas Shelby’s plan to assassinate MP Oswald Mosley, played by Sam Claflin, did not work out. The show is based loosely on real events surrounding an urban street gang in Birmingham, England who went by the name Peaky Blinders from the nineteenth century to the end of the First World War. According to historical facts, the British Union of Fascist MP Mosley did escape an assassination attempt from the Peaky Blinders and continued to live till the age of 84.
The fifth season also saw the death of a major character in the show, Alberama Gold (played by Aiden Gillian) in the failed attempt of assassination. Polly Gray, played by Helen McCroy, left the Shelby company and the season ended with Thomas (Cillian Murphy) putting his gun on his forehead in a moment of chaotic frustration.
This is where the sixth season will take over. Anthony Bryne, the director of the show said, “The very first image you will see will be back in that field, with Tommy with the gun on his head and then we will move on from there and resolve that amazing moment”.
Fans are also expecting Shelby to hunt down the one who betrayed them and leaked Mosley’s assassination plans and avenge the death of Alabama and her sone Bonnie’s death. He might also address the rising rebellion within the family led by his cousin Michael Gray (Finn Cole) with the help of a newly found US Narcotics business.
With fake-dead characters who often make a comeback in the show, for instance, Tom Hardy’s Alfie Solomon or even Arthur Shelby, a possibility of the return of the Gold family is not impossible. Anticipations of Grace’s return, in all probabilities in the form of her husband Thomas’ hallucination, are also afloat.
Release Date of Peaky Blinders Season 6
The filming and post-production works have been delayed due to the global Pandemic. However, after the restrictions are slowly being lifted, the post-production works and other processes are expected to commence soon. No official release date has been revealed as of now, but the fans can expect to watch it on BBC networks and online streaming platform Netflix by the middle of 2021.
