Peaky Blinders fans, get excited: we have a first look of the hotly-anticipated sixth season.
You can watch the clip below.
The upcoming series, which has been confirmed by showrunner Stephen Knight to be the very last of the Brummie gangster drama, will also feature a very familiar face.
In a dimly lit 10 second teaser trailer (a sneaky peaky, if you will), we see Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby is seen striding towards someone – and that person is none other than Tom Hardy’s Alfie Solomons.
If you’re Peaky Blinders obsessives like us, Alfie’s return is a huge shock. The grubby gangster was seemingly killed at the end of the fourth season, as he was literally shot in the face.
But as always with Stephen Knight’s spectacular writing, not everything is as it seems.
The fifth season was littered with hints that seemed to suggest that Solomons had survived, which culminated in the dramatic finale which showed Alfie very much alive and kicking – although not in the best shape, having been blinded in one eye.
But it looks as if Tommy is ready to deliver a final, killer blow to Alfie, telling him in the new teaser trailer: “I think I may have written your final act.”
What could this mean?
While this season is our last helping of gangster drama on the small screen, it certainly won’t be the end for the Peaky Blinders.
The hugely popular series is making its way for a big screen finish, also written by Knight, as a way to wrap up the Shelby family drama.
The film is due to go into production in 2023.
“And then I am going to write the feature which will be set in and shot in Birmingham,” Knight confirmed earlier this year at the BFI London Film Festival.
“That will probably be the sort of the end of the road for Peaky Blinders as we know it.”
We genuinely cannot wait for this…
Peaky Blinders season 6 will air on BBC One next year. You can catch up on seasons 1-5 on BBC iPlayer.
