Peaky Blinders fans here is good news for you. It’s that on Monday, The BBC has confirmed that Peaky Blinders is expected to return ‘in another form’. Tommy Shelby and his gang are all ready to win the hearts of people all over again with their great performance.
Big plans: Peaky Blinders is expected to return ‘in another form’ after filming draws to a close on its sixth and final series
We even spoke to LADbible, the Peaky Blinders Festival in Birmingham. He said ‘I would [consider doing a film].
‘The end scene is the end of this as a television series the way it is now, but it’s certainly not ruling out spin-offs or a movie.’
‘So I think there’s something about Peaky where it’s a world, lots of people have different interpretations of that world, so I’m all for keeping the spirit going.’
All over: The BBC confirmed on Monday that Tommy Shelby and his gang will return by sharing an image of lead actor Cillian Murphy getting the character’s signature skin fade
Director Anthony Byrne said ‘I think a film 100 percent could work, but I’d rather watch six hours than two. Simple as that. You can go deeper into characters and spend more time in their world I think.’
‘We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.’
‘Steve’s scripts for series six are truly remarkable and provide a fitting send-off which we are sure will delight fans.’
End of the road? Writer and creator Steven Knight confirmed that the sixth season would be the show’s last, but reassured fans that ‘the story will continue’ – possibly in the form of a feature-length spin-off
He said: ‘I like the supernatural element. “Is Tommy cursed?” In other words, is everything predestined, are lives already mapped out? Do you have free will or not?
‘Tommy sometimes feels that he doesn’t because it seems that everything is destined to stop him or move him in a particular direction. It’s the same with the whole family. I explore that more in the next series.’
Intriguing: In July, Knight told fans he plans to explore whether lead character Tommy Shelby – played by Cillian – is ‘cursed’ in the next season
‘In an ideal world, it would be great to be prepping again towards the end of the year with a view to start shooting early next year.
‘That feels achievable, whether that’s true or not, I have no idea!’
He added: ‘If we did start shooting in January we wouldn’t finish until May or June and then it’s another 6 months of editing.’
