The series takes a pretty dark & intense with season five leaving the audience yearning for more.

Season 5 left the audiences a bit worried after Tommy loses control & attempts to kill himself.
But rest assured, as Cillian Murphy is firmly on casting list for season 6, so we know for sure that Tommy is still alive & will be back in no time to rock the world with his magnetic charm.
Season 6 will also see Gina’s family attempting to grab the limelight & make themselves known.
We also know that the 1st episode of Peaky Blinders, Season 6 will be aired by the name of ‘Black Day’.

If sources are to be believed, the sixth drop promises to be back with a much stronger cast to look out for & might also see a few celebrity cameos.
Any update on the release?
The release of the 6th season was scheduled for this year but given the situation now, the filming has been delayed & even though there is no confirmation on the date of release, all we can say is that we might have to wait furthermore to get some good news.
What we think
The series has shown immense growth with every new season & we do hope for the same for its upcoming seasons as well.
No show has ever seen such a remarkable return on investment. The series sets an example of an exemplary well-written script with strong & powerful female leads & a breathtaking performance by Cillian Murphy.
Peaky Blinders is not for the weak-hearted, it’s a show that gives you an adrenaline rush, a show that doesn’t let you lie down on your couch & watch, rather it makes you sit up every now & then literally making your eyes pop-out!
