Peaky Blinders Creator Reveals Season 6 Release Date

Peaky Blinders creator, Steven Knight, has revealed when he anticipates the show's final season will be released.

Speaking during a panel at the BFI London Film Festival on Thursday, Knight said he is hoping for a Spring release, meaning the sixth season of the show will likely drop between March and May 2022.

Excited crowds were told that the last instalment of the TV show had now been completely shot, and editing was close to being completed.

During the panel, Knight also gave further details of the movie version of the show - which he has teased ever since announcing the Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) fronted TV series would be coming to an end.

"I am going to write the feature which will be set in and shot in Birmingham," Variety report that Knight told the room.

"And that will probably be the sort of the end of the road for Peaky Blinders as we know it."

Cry.

Knight said production for this is likely to start in around 2023, which means the flick could hit movie theatres in 2024.

Just a few years to wait then, eh?

However, he's also teased that we could see the Peaky Blinders world back on the small screen, but in a different format, and with different characters (a spin-off series, perhaps...)

We don't yet know whether that would be a prequel, delving into the life of a character from the show, or a sequel, following on the life of a character from season six.

Either way, Knight said he would 'pass the baton on' rather than take the helm for either of these, should they come about.

Fans have been eagerly waiting a Peaky update, seeing as it has been two years since the show last hit screens.

The show's release date has been delayed as a result of Covid-19 interrupting filming, but it finally wrapped in May.
