Created by Steven Knight, “Peaky Blinders” is a period crime drama television series starring Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill and Helen McCrory in lead roles. The makers have already released five seasons, and now the show is all set to return with its season six.
In an interview with Birmingham Press Club, Steven Knight said, “we are definitely doing [series] six and, we will probably do seven.”
This confirmation has definitely made the fans happy, but the big question that still remains in everyone’s mind is when will the sixth season release?
Here are all the updates we have on the show’s next season.
Release Date –
The cast was expected to complete the shoot by June 2020. However, the show is still stuck at its pre-production stage as the shoot couldn’t get started because of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Show’s director Anthony Byrne posted an update regarding the show’s next season on his official Instagram account.

We were so close to the start of filming Season 6. Months of hard work by our very talented, dedicated and hardworking crew. Sets were built, costumes were made. Cameras and lenses tested. Locations were booked. All the prep was done. It’s a real shame not to be able to make it for you at this time. But I personally want to thank the crew that I’ve spent months working with and I want to send my love and support to them and everyone else. We are in this together. . . These are extraordinary times and we must be extraordinary in them. . . Remember who we all are as a people and look out for those around you who will find these times challenging. Dig deep. It will pass. . . Read that book that’s been staring at you for years. Write a poem, script, novel. Listen to music. Watch movies. Be creative. Make art. Share. Find the positive in all of this and use it. We will be better for it in the long run. Stay safe and healthy. Support the amazing people who are keeping the @nhsmillion going. Look after those around you and reach out to people. .

It’ll be interesting to see how the makers will carry forward the story with these series of events.
