The world of Thomas Shelby is finally concluding but not entirely though. Peaky Blinders is calling it a wrap with sixth season, BBC has officially confirmed.
Showrunner Steven Knight posted a statement to Peaky Blinder's official website, confirming that, after a hiatus, the show was back in production for season 6. In his message, he also confirmed that the forthcoming season would be the last for the series. Thanking all his fans, Knight stated that the upcoming season would be better than all the parts that have been released for the series so far. Additionally, as he concluded his note, Knight subtly hinted towards the continuation of the franchise. He suggested that once the show ends, the story will continue in some other form.
His statement read, "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."
As known, the story focuses on the eponymous urban youth gang and its charismatic leader Thomas "Tommy" Shelby (Cillian Murphy). They rise from thuggish street hoods to become the leaders of a powerful crime syndicate. Over the years, the UK crime series has featured appearances from A-listed performers, including Tom Hardy, Anna-Taylor Joy, and Adrien Brody.
