The fifth season of the BBC One series Peaky Blinders ended on a cliffhanger, with Tommy seeing visions of his late wife Grace played by Annabelle Wallis, and turning a gun on himself following his botched assassination attempt of the British Union of Fascists leader. And BBC has recently unveiled the release date of the most anticipated series. The sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders will release on BBC One on February 27 at 9 pm.
The return of the iconic gangster drama was announced through a striking mural of the series’ epic gang leader Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) in Digbeth, Birmingham. Fans of the acclaimed drama have waited more than two years for a new series, with explosive scenes teased in a recent trailer showing Shelby open fire with a machine gun.
Peaky Blinders first aired in 2013 and tells the story of the notorious Shelby family’s rise to prominence and power, against the backdrop of working-class, post-First World War Birmingham. This comes as creator Steven Knight said the final season of Peaky Blinders will ‘go into and beyond the Second World War’ and is ‘the end of the beginning’ as he teased a future movie release. For many years the creator claimed the gangster show would end with air-raid sirens over Birmingham marking the start of World War Two.
Peaky Blinders’ much-anticipated trailer for its final season left fans on the edge of their seats as Shelby opened fire in intense scenes. The 90-second teaser trailer kicks off with Tommy dramatically walking across a shadowy field before firing a machine gun into the air while shouting. ‘One last deal to be done, then we Peaky Blinders rest,’ Tommy says. The trailer was jam-packed with nail-biting stand-offs, intense fight scenes, and a devastating fire, leaving fans wondering what plot twists the final series would bring.
