  • Posted 2 weeks Ago

Steven Knight, the creator of hit show Peaky Blinders, has confirmed it will be returning for seasons 6 and 7. Many fans feared the show would end after the upcoming fifth season, but Knight squashed those fears when speaking to Birmingham Press Club, stating: "We are definitely doing [series] six and we will probably do seven […] After series four it went mad […] We’ve talked to [lead actor] Cillian Murphy and he’s all for it, and the rest of the principal cast are in for it."

It's still incredibly early days, but Knight did even elude to the potential plot line, adding: "I want it to end with the first air raid siren in Birmingham in the Second World War, so that will be the start of the next chapter in British history. It’s that period." He also mentioned he's been lobbying the BBC to film more of it in his hometown of Birmingham – "It's always bothered me that Birmingham didn't have that profile. It's a big city and it wasn't shouting about it," he said.

Season 5 is set to begin filming this autumn. Stay tuned for more info.
