Peaky Blinders Moves from BBC Two to BBC One for Upcoming Season
24 Aug 2018 :
Director of Content for the BBC, Charlotte Moore announced that the popular television series would be making the move on to BBC’s main channel at the Edinburgh International TV Festival earlier this week.

The gritty crime drama starring Cillian Murphy and Aiden Gillen, centres around the Birmingham-based Shelby family in their attempts to build an international criminal organisation after the fallout and destruction of World War One. 

Since its air date in 2013, the popularity of the BBC drama has increased rapidly, culminating in viewing numbers of 3.6 million during the season four finale last year. Moore described the popularity the show has amongst a younger audience, adding that “when a show really pops like that, it feels like a really good moment to put it on the biggest channel in the country”

Speaking with Deadline, creator and writer of the show Steven Knight said:

“I am thrilled that our precious Peaky Blinders is moving to BBC One. Peaky is a show nurtured and grown by the audience who have found us through word of mouth. Hopefully this move will help us reach even more people.” 

A release date for the fifth season has not yet been released, although BBC has confirmed that the show will air at some point in 2019.
