Those Peaky Blinders are back this year for one final season, and the BBC has dropped the first trailer for the drama which is “coming soon”.

One of the BBC’s most successful dramas, ‘Peaky Blinders’ has become a huge international phenomenon, thrilling millions of viewers worldwide with the story of Tommy Shelby and his notorious family’s rise to prominence and power, against the backdrop of working-class, post-First World War Birmingham.

Whilst we don’t yet have a plot synopsis for Season 6, you can see in the trailer that it is heading toward the onset of WWII. We also know that there is a bit of a time jump, but Tommy is still an MP, but that the political tension only worsens as time goes on. “In series six, we’ll be looking at 1934 and things are worse, commented creator Steven Knight in an interview with 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.”

One new face (to the drama) you may have spotted in there is Stephen Graham, who is set to join the returning cast of Cillian Murphy, Paul Anderson and Finn Cole. Tom Hardy is also set to return as Alfie Solomons. Helen McCrory tragically passed away last year, so it is unclear how they will handle the absence of Aunt Polly.

The sixth series is written by Knight, Anthony Byrne returns as director having directed series five to great acclaim, and Nick Goding will produce. Executive producers are Caryn Mandabach, Steven Knight, Jamie Glazebrook, David Mason, Anthony Byrne and Cillian Murphy. Tommy Bulfin is executive producer for the BBC and Lucy Bedford is executive producer for Tiger Aspect. Peaky Blinders, from Caryn Mandabach Productions, is co-produced with Tiger Aspect Productions and distributed internationally by Banijay Rights.

Peaky Blinders‘ Season 6 is set to premiere “soon” in 2022 on BBC One. If you want to keep track of this show you can add it via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
