With news that our favourite Brummies were leaving our screen for good after it’s sixth season, we were left heartbroken. But revealing in an interview with Deadline yesterday, creator Steven Knight said this might not be the case. Hinting that the gangster series will be returning “in another form”, Knight said, “Covid changed our plans. But I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie. That is what is going to happen.”
This isn’t the first time news of a Peaky Blinders film has been thrown in the air, as a few years ago rumours swirled around on the TL, but nothing was set in concrete. Knight previously expressed interest in wrapping the Cillian Murphy-led drama after its seventh season, but the pandemic meant that filming for season six didn’t get underway until Monday – delayed by a little less than a year.
With details still tightly under-wraps, Knight previously revealed that he planted seeds in season five which would be picked up later on, and while the last season gave an insight into Tommy’s psyche and the financial crash of 1929, we’re excited to see what Knight has lined up for Shelby family.
