First Trailer Arrives For ‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 5
BBC One has released the first trailer for the upcoming 5th Season of ‘Peaky Blinders‘ Season 5.
The 5th Season finds the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere. When Tommy Shelby MP (Cillian Murphy) is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family’s future but that of the entire nation.
Alongside Murphy, the new season also features returning cast members Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle, Finn Cole, Kate Phillips, Natasha O’Keeffe, Aidan Gillen, Jack Rowan, Charlie Murphy, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Harry Kirton, Packy Lee, Ned Dennehy, Ian Peck and Benjamin Zephaniah.
They will be joined by new cast members Sam Claflin (‘The Nightingale, Adrift’, ‘Journey’s End’), Anya Taylor-Joy (‘Split’, ‘The Witch’), Brian Gleeson (‘Phantom Thread’, ‘Logan Lucky’), Neil Maskell (‘Happy New Year’, ‘In Darkness’), Kate Dickie (‘The Cry’, ‘The Witch’), Cosmo Jarvis (‘Calm With Horses’, ‘Lady Macbeth’)and Emmett J Scanlan (‘Safe’, and Lobo in ‘Krypton’), Elliot Cowan (‘The Spanish Princess’, ‘Krypton’), Charlene McKenna (‘Ripper Street’, ‘Pure Mule’), Andrew Koji (‘Warrior’, ‘The Innocence’) and Daryl McCormack (‘A Very English Scandal’) for the fifth series.
We caught up with some of the cast a few weeks ago at the World Premiere of Season 5 in Birmingham. You can see us chat with Sophie Rundle (Ada Thorne, née Shelby), Finn Cole (Michael Gray), Natasha O’Keeffe (Lizzie Shelby née Stark), Harry Kirton (Finn Shelby), Packy Lee (Johnny Dogs), and Daryl McCormack, who takes over the role of Isaiah Jesus from Jordan Bolger, below.
The BBC hasn’t yet announced a premiere date for ‘Peaky Blinders‘ Season 5, but it will arrive in Autumn 2019. If you’re hankering for a Peaky fix, or need to remind yourself where we left things, Seasons 1 – 4 are available on BBC iPlayer.
