Bafta award winning drama series Peaky Blinders is set to release its sixth and final season, however dedicated fans have something to be excited about as there are talks of a movie.
Peaky Blinders has captivated audiences with its depiction of 20th century criminal culture in Birmingham, England during the aftermath of World War I. Following the Shelby family, the show's combination of unique costumes and dramatic violence and romanticism made it a hit with audiences since premiering in September 2013.
The series has developed a cult-like following, growing more and more in popularity over its years, with fans even adopting a slang term to identify with the show, calling themselves Peakys.
After enforced production delays due to Covid-19 restrictions in 2020, the show was able to begin delayed production in January this year for the final season.
