A tall handsome man

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. Here is everything about Peaky Blinders Season 6 release date, plot, cast, and much more 

In this article on Peaky Blinders Season 6, we have discussed who is the traitor. We have mentioned the cast, the possible plot, release date, and the trailer of the Peaky Blinders Season 6.

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 concluded filming and release of the teaser of Peaky Blinders Season 6, here’s everything we know about this upcoming season!

Peaky Blinder Season 6 – Every Update

If you have followed the series from season 1 then you must have noticed that every season ended in the conclusion. But Season 5 ended with the question WHO? This has created hype among the audience and they are eager to know what happens next. Well, we have good news the shooting is complete, and here are the other updates like the plot, release date, and cast of Peaky Blinders Season 6. 

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, 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 the 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.”
