Paul Anderson Says Peaky Blinders Season Six Is 'Coming Soon'

With lockdown number two now in full swing, we're relying on TV to get us through the cold evenings - and now, it seems we've finally got a series to look forward to.

We don't have long until the next helping of Peaky Blinders is expected to hit our screens, according to some of the cast.

Paul Anderson, who plays Arthur Shelby Jr. in the Brummie-based gangster series, has hinted series six will be on screens very soon.

Posting some artwork of Arthur on his Instagram page, the 42-year-old told his 501,000 followers: "Season six #comingfknsoon. Thanking you all for the wait, it will be worth it."

The post sparked excitement amongst fans, who have been eagerly anticipating the new series after it wrapped with a dramatic cliffhanger in September last year.

The final few moments of the show see Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) put a gun to his head, as he's grappling with his suicidal thoughts - leaving fans to speculate whether he's still alive.

However, while Anderson is promising we will see more Peaky Blinders soon, it may not be until 2021 that we can finally see what's next for the Shelby family.

The series was expected to start shooting in March this year, but production was unfortunately delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Director Anthony Byrne explained: "We were so close to the start of filming season six. 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."

He added to Digital Spy: "In an ideal world it would be great to be prepping again towards the end of the year [2020] with a view to start shooting early next year [2021]. That feels achievable, whether that's true or not, I have no idea.

"We were due to start filming at the end of March [2020] until the end of July. If we did start shooting in January, we wouldn't finish until May / June and then it's another 6 months of editing."

No matter how long we're waiting, the cast have assured it's most certainly worth ut..

Emmett J Scanlan, who plays Billy Grade, said: "I've read all the scripts since then, which of course are all subject to change...It won't disappoint, I promise you. Steven [Knight, showrunner] is a master."
