Peaky Blinders Creator Hints Future Spin-Offs Of The Show Might Not Include Tommy Shelby

We're still getting over the devastating Bridgerton news that Rege-Jean Page will not return as The Duke of Hastings and now we have to cope with the idea that we might no longer get to see Cillian Murphy as Tommy Shelby in Peaky Blinders either.

The show's creator and writer Steven Knight has hinted that a Peaky Blinders spin-off show could go ahead without actor Cillian Murphy's iconic character.

Although he admits it would be "impossible" to imagine the current Peaky Blinders show without him, he isn't ruling it out for future spin-offs.

Knight told Birmingham Live, "In the form it is in, it is absolutely impossible for this to work without Cillian. As it grows and progresses, who knows? There may be worlds that are part of the Peaky world that are about someone else but he is the centre around everything orbits."

The main Peaky Blinders show will be coming to an end after the sixth and final season of the BBC drama but Knight has previously hinted at future spin-off shows and even a movie.

He told BBC News back in January "The original intention was to do seven series, but COVID has stolen a year from us.

"And we felt what would be a great idea is to - almost in place of that seventh series - is to go onto the big screen."

In regards to spin-off shows, Knight told Birmingham Live, "It will go on in another form, which will be the film, and beyond that we want to keep the world going.

"In other words, the story of Small Heath and the Shelby family will continue on. I want to keep it going until...whenever."

A Peaky Blinders movie and a spin-off show will certainly help soften the blow of the main show coming to an end.
