The last time fans saw new episodes of Peaky Blinders was between August and September 2019, when season 5 aired.

“We think this will be the best series ever and we’re sure our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will come to an end, the story will continue in a different way. I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end with Peaky with a movie. That’s what’s going to happen.”
