How long will Tommy Shelby fight to control the cacophonous streets of Small Heath? Although the fourth season of the Peaky Blinders TV show doesn’t start shooting until April, Writer Steven Knight is already thinking about wrapping up the BBC Two crime drama.
Will Peaky Blinders End After Season Five?
Knight is currently writing Peaky Blinders season four. The writer tells Radio Times that the program, which has already been renewed for season five, may end with its fifth season.
“Never say never, but we feel that [series] five may be the last,” Knight says. “We don’t know for sure. We will see how we feel about it. Peaky is one of those things everybody loves, and the response has been so magnificent on both sides of the Atlantic.
“I have got the end in my mind; whether that happens at the end of five is the question,” he said. “I want it to end when the first air raid siren sounds in Birmingham.
“It is a story of a family between two world wars. It begins in 1919 when they have just come back from the war and the family’s journey is towards legitimacy and respectability and to leave their past behind. The big question of the whole series is this: is that possible?”
