First trailer for Peaky Blinders season 6
No release date has been given but it's expected to air sometime in early 2022.
The BBC has released the first trailer for the sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders.
The minute-and-half clip, which opens with a shot of the gang’s troubled leader Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) firing a gun into the air, teases an intense end to the acclaimed drama.
Ominous glimpses of Nazi swastika flags suggests that this season will see the outbreak of World War 2, which could be disastrous for Tommy and his unstable brother Arthur (Paul Anderson) who still clearly have PTSD from fighting in World War 1.
It’s also likely that the gang will have further clashes with returning fascist leader Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin), seen leading a busy blackshirts rally, who they failed to assassinate in the season 5 finale.
We’re treated to a look at Stephen Graham’s mysterious new character who is yet to be named. Creator Stephen Knight has confirmed that he won’t be playing famed prohibition-era gangster Al Capone however.
Along with those cast members already mentioned, Tom Hardy, Finn Cole, Sophie Rundle, Anya Taylor-Joy and Natasha O’Keeffe are also set to return.
It’s not yet known in what capacity Helen McCrory’s Aunt Polly will be featured in this upcoming season following the actress’ death from cancer last April.
Season 5 will once again consist of 6 episodes all of which were written by Knight and directed by Anthony Byrne.
You can stream all five seasons of Peaky Blinders on Netflix now.
