Peaky Blinders Star Shares First Behind-The-Scenes Pictures For Series Five
Peaky Blinders actor Paul Anderson, who plays volatile Arthur Shelby in the hit BBC gangster drama, has shared a series of behind-the-scenes snaps during the filming of the next season.
The exciting images, originally posted to his Snapchat story, show Paul dressed up in his character's costume, posing for the camera in a mirror to give fans a sneak peek at series five.
While the photos do not give much away about the show's plot at all, they have still drummed up excitement for viewers ahead of the series' 2019 release.
Paul aka Arthur is wearing a pinstripe, white tunic shirt, paired with smart trousers and circular sunglasses in one image, and in the other, he has added a pair of Shelby braces.
The next season of Peaky Blinders will be set in 1930s Birmingham, and it's believed that Cillian Murphy will be returning as bad boy Thomas Shelby, along with Paul as Arthur, Finn Cole as Michael Gray, Sophie Rundle as Ada Thorne and Helen McCrory as Polly Gray.
Reports suggest that Aidan Gillen could well be reappearing as the wonderfully named Aberama Gold next series too.
It's unlikely that Tom Hardy will be reprising his role as Aflie Solomons, as the character appeared to be killed off during the finale of the last series by Tommy.

However, the show's creator, Steven Knight, cast doubt over whether the character was actually dead, as when he was quizzed over Alfie's fate, he just said 'pass'.
Series four saw the Shelby clan gaining more power, and Tommy was elected as an MP for Birmingham South, winning the vote by a landslide.
The fifth series will also focus on Tommy's mental health, which seemed to be worsening by the end of last season.
Fans are being kept in the dark about a release date for the next series of Peaky Blinders, although we do know that it will be in 2019.
CONFIRMED: The BAFTA award-winning drama series will move to @BBCOne for its highly-anticipated fifth series. Cheers to @BBCTwo for keeping it in the family. We promise to protect the Shelby name, whatever it takes... https://t.co/r2DEF1RETq #PeakyBlinders https://t.co/x9KXbV8O99- BBC One (@BBCOne) August 22, 2018
The show is moving from BBC Two to BBC One when it does land on screens next year, with Steve Knight promising fans with another three more potential series.
