According to Knight’s statements, who will face Tommy Shelby in season 6 of Peaky Blinders is the character of Stephen Graham, about which he did not reveal further details. And although he is not his enemy, it would be interesting to see what will be the reasons that will motivate him to confront the dangerous criminal businessman played by Cillian Murphy.
