Peaky Blinders Season 4 was a roller-coaster from start to finish and there was nothing about the last episode that didn’t want me immediately wanting more.

Tommy became a Labour politician, he killed Alfie, had another kid and is sort of having an affair with the feminist lady – there’s too much going on to comfortably wait for the next season.

Happily though, we don’t have that long – relatively speaking – to wait until we can watch our favourite Brummie family hit the small screens again, as Peaky Blinders season 5 has begun shooting, due for a Spring 2019 release!

Also, as of the 12th of September, Peaky Blinders has been on our screens for a full five years, and it absolutely doesn’t feel that way. The time genuinely has flown by, which is both slightly scary, but also exciting since we’re going to get three more seasons of the show.

Show creator Steven Knight recently revealed that he has plans to end Peaky Blinders at the end of season seven, with the first air raid siren sounding in Birmingham in 1939:

My ambition is to make it a story of a family between two wars, so always I’ve wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham in 1939.”

Until then though, Peaky Blinders is moving from BBC2 to BBC1 where BBC’s director of content, Charlotte Moore, assures us it will be given “more creative headroom to experiment“.


Roll on Spring.
