Peaky Blinders is nowhere to be seen again, and while that coveted moment arrives, the creators of the show have been presenting new advances to their viewers. Recall that the fifth season left more than one of us in suspense, then, it hinted at the suicide of Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy), as he ended up with a gun to his head.
Also, as we are closer to its premiere, the creator of the program Steven Knight affirms that “there has never been so much at stake” with the new season, as it is scheduled to be the best yet. Let’s remember that this story is inspired by real events, and to the surprise of many, Knight has family ties to the Peaky Blinders in real life.
Last year, many productions were forced to stop due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however, after that, the production has been preparing to leave more than one speechless, as detailed by Steven Knight: ” Peaky is back and with a bang “…” After the forced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we found the family in extreme danger and the stakes have never been higher. ”
We well know that the tensions in this installment are greater due to the unknowns that remained in the past. As we know, one of the characters sabotaged Thomas Shelby’s plan to assassinate Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin), leaving him in a fragile state of mind in the end. Also, Aberama Gold (Aidan Gillen) died trying to avenge the death of his son.
Also, in addition to experiencing unexpected deaths on the screen, unfortunately in real life there was also a death, it is aunt Polly Gray (Helen McCrory), who died during the filming of the season.
Although there are still no definitive answers, little by little the production has been releasing us clues of what is coming next. For example, in one of the previews we saw Tommy talking to Alfie Solomons (Tom Hardy). Although it’s still unclear whether Alfie is on the good or bad side, Netflix viewers are more than pleased to see him again in this role.
In addition to the revelations of the creator of this series, Anthony Byrne, the director of the sixth season of Peaky Blinders, described this installment as “gothic”, since it “will bring darkness to the forefront.” Peaky Blinders season six director Anthony Byrne described the new season as ‘goth’, “A word that Cillian and I used a lot during filming was ‘goth,’ and this season is a lot of that.”
