The first trailer for the new season of Peaky Blinders has been released!
The BBC’s hit period drama series began in 2013 and tells the story of a crime family in Birmingham, England in the early 20th century.
It wasn’t all good news, sadly, as the BBC then revealed that Season 6 will be the show’s last.
Now that this news has sunk in though, we can prepare ourselves for the six brand new episodes that are coming up!
Fans have been promised “a fitting send-off” by executive producer Tommy Bulfin.
Executive producer Caryn Mandabach added: “This final season of our beloved Peaky Blinders is going to be the best one yet. Steve’s uncanny ability to be prescient about world events is only matched by his ability to make Tommy Shelby the most indelible character of our times.”
She added: “Steve’s scripts are incredible and mark the end of an epic story.”
A 90-second trailer was released on YouTube yesterday – with the ominous tagline “One last deal to be done” – featuring all-new footage from Season 6.
Watch it here:
Season 6 is set to premiere in the UK on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in late January or February.
The new episodes will then be available to watch worldwide on Netflix shortly after.
Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight’s new BBC drama SAS: Rogue Heroes is also on the way.
The action-packed six-part series tells how the world’s most renowned and ruthless Special Forces unit, the SAS, came to exist during darkest days of the Second World War.
Based on Ben Macintyre’s best-selling book Rogue Heroes, SAS: Rogue Heroes will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK later in 2022.
Knight also has a series about Birmingham’s early ’80s music scene, the long-awaited second season of Taboo, and a World War II drama called Roads to Freedom coming up.
There’s also the long-rumoured Peaky Blinders movie to look forward to once Season 6 concludes!
Peaky Blinders is available on DVD on Amazon.
