Peaky Blinders To End After Sixth Season
BBC’s fan-favourite drama Peaky Blinders will end its run after the upcoming and sixth season.
The final season has been written by showrunner and creator Steven Knight, produced by Carolyn Mandaback and Nick Goding. Anthony Byrne returns from season 5 to direct. The series rise-to-power in a working-class, post-WWI Birmingham has reached its conclusion. The latest season premiered in 2019 and it was initial planned to continue to the seventh season, but Covid-19 and the pandemics restriction has shortened the series run. The sixth season is up and running, as BBC has confirmed it on Monday together with the producers.
Steven Knight stated:
’Peaky’ is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid 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.”
Executive producer Caryn Madabach 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.”
The hit-series started on BBC One back in 2013 and has become an extremely popular series for the public broadcaster. The whole series up to date is also available for streaming on Netflix.
