What’s next for Peaky Blinders? Recently, creator Steven Knight and the cast spoke with Deadline about the future of the BBC TV show.
The UK drama, which airs on Netflix in the U.S., centers on a gang living and operating in 1920s Birmingham, England. The cast includes Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Tom Hardy, Annabelle Wallis, Sam Neill, Charlotte Riley, and Adrien Brody.
Season four of Peaky Blinders is slated to premiere on BBC Two on November 15th. The series has already been renewed for a fifth season, though it’s unclear when the seasons will be released on Netflix.
Speaking to Deadline, Murphy revealed fans can expect a different side of Tommy from season four:
Tommy is trying to convince himself it’s okay. He’s trying to live with it and what happened to the rest of them. He’s not the sort of character who’s going to go to therapy… It’s an interesting place to find him completely estranged; family was his raison d’etre.”
Later, creator Steven Knight said he’s not sure if Peaky Blinders will end with season five. As of now, there is a musical adaptation planned and there could also be a movie:
The thought has long been to finish after Season 5, but the momentum and love for the thing seems to still be growing exponentially and this is making us pause before deciding finally.
We are also keeping our minds open as regards a movie and we are making progress on the musical. Peaky is now a beast that will not die.”
What do you think? Do you watch Peaky Blinders? Do you think there should be a sixth season?
I love the series and with such a talented writer and cast i think there should be another series after five but end it at its best!
Awesome series. Gets better and better. Things CAN go on too long, but if they keep THIS quality up… worth it.
