Peaky Blinders Season 6: The Peaky Blinders is a BBC series also available on Netflix and has five seasons behind it. With season 5 as the best for many, all are of a very high level. We already have a sixth in the making that has created hype since it may be the penultimate season of the series. Here is everything about Peaky Blinders Season 6 release date, plot, cast and much more
Steven Knight, the creator and screenwriter of the series, has raised the hype by stating that the sixth “will be the best season to date.”
The latest season of the Netflix-by-way-of-the-BBC drama Peaky Blinders wrapped up its fifth season with a cliffhanger finale that left more questions unanswered than resolved. Between failed schemes, surprising survivals, and shocking returns, the last episode of Season 5 threw things into chaos for Tommy Shelby and the rest of his old-fashioned razor gang. With production set to begin on Season 6 sometime in early 2020, it’ll be a while before we get to see more of Peaky Blinders, but for now, here’s everything we know about the upcoming season.
What is the Plot of Peaky Blinders Season 6
The Season 5 finale was a bit of a doozy. Tommy had an entire scheme to take out his political rival, Oswald Mosley, a British fascist who did, in fact, exist in real life. Tommy broke out Barney, an expert sniper and old war buddy, in order to kill Mosley during a political rally. Of course, it backfired, ending with Shelby ally Aberama Gold dead and Tommy putting a gun to his head at the end of the episode. Mosley, however, is still very much alive, leaving further unresolved threads that will surely carry over into next season.
The biggest question at hand, however, is who betrayed Tommy and caused his plan to fail (we have some thoughts). Of course, Season 6 must also further grapple with Tommy’s suicidal ideation — we’re assuming that he doesn’t die after Season 5, given that actor Cillian Murphy is confirmed to return.
Past that, we also know that Season 6 will delve more into Gina’s influential, American family as well as people from Oswald Mosley’s social circle. That being said, we won’t be seeing much of the American mob. “I think it’s a bit of a minefield because it’s been done a lot,” series creator Steven Knight told Digital Spy. Knight has no intention to touch the likes of Al Capone at any point in Peaky Blinders‘ future.
The new season will take us up to 1934, where “things are worse,” Knight told NME. “The drumbeat is getting louder, tensions are worse and Tommy is right in the middle of all that. Again, it will be an exploration of what was going on in the ’30s and how certain things transpired.” We can expect Season 6 to be just as firmly mired in the politics of the time as Season 5, and according to Knight, “it is a tragedy.”
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Release Date
Season 6 should be shooting right now for a 2021 release, but the coronavirus has wholly twisted the schedule. Along with the most significant image of Cillian Murphy in the role of Tommy Shelby, the director explained that although everything was prepared for the start of production, it is time to stop until further notice:

“We were very close to the beginning of filming for season 6. Months of hard work from our very talented, dedicated, and hard-working team. Sets were built, costumes were made, cameras and lenses ready. Places were reserved. All the preparation was done. It’s a real shame not to be able to do it right now. But personally, I want to thank the crew I have spent months working with, and I want to send my love and support to them and to everyone else. We are in this together.”
It looks like we have to wait a little longer for the sixth installment than already expected.
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Cast
The statement concerning the cast of the upcoming season has not been yet, but we’re predicting that the cast of the season will reprise their roles. The Principal cast includes:
- Cillian Murphy as Tommy
- Harry Kirton as Finn

How many episodes will be in Peaky Blinders Season 6?
Barring any major changes, we can expect Season 6 to have six episodes like other seasons of the show.
One of the things we do know for sure is that the premiere episode of the season will be titled “Black Day,” thanks to a preproduction Instagram post from director Byrne. Sounds ominous.
The Trailer of Peaky Blinders Season 6
No. There is no trailer out. We can expect a trailer to arrive 2 weeks before it’s release. This is expected to be released nearer the release date of the upcoming outing in later 2021 or early 2022.
