BBC has released the highly anticipated trailer for the sixth and final instalment of Peaky Blinders, which sees Irish actor Cillian Murphy reprise his role as Thomas Shelby.

One of the BBC’s most successful dramas, Peaky Blinders has developed a cult following over the years with audiences following the story of Tommy Shelby and his notorious family crime dynasty’s rise to prominence and power. Set against the backdrop of working class, post-First World War Birmingham.

The upcoming series will be the shows last with Peaky Blinders’ creator and writer Steven Knight revealing early last year that the sixth season would be the show’s last. At the time, Knight added that the story would “continue in another form”, which sparked rumours of a film. This was confirmed last October when Knight told Variety that a Peaky Blinders film would begin production in 2023.

“Peaky is back and with a bang. We find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher,” said creator Steven Knight. “We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it.”

The sixth series is written by Knight, with Irish director Anthony Byrne returning to helm the series again having directed series five to great acclaim, with Nick Goding producing. Executive producers on the show include Caryn Mandabach, Steven Knight, Jamie Glazebrook, David Mason, Anthony Byrne, and Cillian Murphy.

Tommy Bulfin is executive producer for the BBC and Lucy Bedford is executive producer for Tiger Aspect. Peaky Blinders, from Caryn Mandabach Productions, is co-produced with Tiger Aspect Productions and distributed internationally by Banijay Rights.

Peaky Blinders first aired on BBC Two eight years ago, quickly becoming one of the channel’s most popular dramas, broadcasting to huge critical acclaim, and ratings quickly growing from over two million for the first series to more than four million for series four.

It made the transition to BBC One for the fifth series in 2019, again garnering rave reviews, and achieving audiences of over seven million. It has been broadcast elsewhere across the world on Netflix. Throughout its run, the drama has won many awards including NTAs as voted for by the public, Bafta Craft Awards, and a Bafta for Best Drama series in 2018.

No broadcast date has been revealed as of yet, but is expected to air in early 2022.

Tom Collins: “For me it's all about the work, which is about creating a reflection of a modern Irish cultural identity that can travel beyond borders, history and these shores.”
