The new season of Peaky Blinders will begin production sooner than we thought!
The BBC’s hit period drama about a crime family in Birmingham, England in the 1920s concluded its fifth season in September.
Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight announced way back in February that he was already working on the scripts for the show’s next season.
Helen McCrory, best known as Aunt Polly, is currently busy filming a new political thriller series for the BBC and PBS Masterpiece.
Once that’s wrapped, the Peaky Blinders cast and crew will be reuniting to begin filming Season 6.
Six new episodes are set to start shooting in Liverpool and Scotland from 11th February 2020 according to ProductionWeekly.
However, the show’s official BBC podcast confirmed earlier this year that the new season isn’t likely to be broadcast until 2021.
The sixth season of Peaky Blinders will premiere on BBC One in the UK, then around the world on Netflix shortly after the final episode has aired on British TV.
Main cast members Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle and Finn Cole are all expected to return.
A seventh season of Peaky Blinders hasn’t been officially commissioned, but writer Steven Knight has previously stated that he envisions the show running for a total of seven seasons.
Knight’s new adaptation of A Christmas Carol aired on BBC One last week.
Peaky Blinders is available on DVD on Amazon.
