The sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders is on the way, but the story isn’t quite over for Tommy Shelby and his Birmingham gang. Instead of ending their run on television, the final chapter in the history of the Peaky Blinders will take place in film, confirmed show creator Steven Knight in 2021. “Covid has changed our plans. But I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie, “he told Deadline.” That will happen. “

While Peaky will finish his TV run this spring, it can still It will take quite a while for the audience to finalize the show. During a panel discussion at the BFI London Film Festival, Knight announced that the film would go into production in Birmingham, England in 2023. Knight also announced at the time that it would Will be writing a film – not a complete surprise considering he wrote the last six seasons of the series.

“We’re developing. It’s a mature idea and has a beginning, a middle, and an end . And I think it will be a fitting end to the story told so far, ”he said on Diversity in January 2021. Given that timeline, it’s likely that the film itself wouldn’t hit screens until 2024, but so far w No official dates are announced.

It is currently unclear what storylines to expect in the movie Peaky Blinders, or even what year it might take place.

Back in 2018, Knight had announced to fans that the original intention was to shoot a seventh season of the TV show, with a view to even more seasons. “My ambition is to make a family story between two wars out of it, that’s why I always wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in 1939,” he said at the time. However, whether that means we can expect season six to end in that vein – suggesting the film would take place either during or after World War II – or whether that could be a potential cap on the film itself, is just speculation at this point.

At a BFI London Film Festival panel in late 2021, Knight said the film will “likely be the end of the road for Peaky Blinders as we know it,” which sounds like he is planning on doing that Film a final ending becomes a story. However, he’s also hinted that this may not be the final bow for the Peaky Universe as a whole. “We’re talking about … I don’t like the word spin-offs, but TV series inspired by Peaky and featuring characters from Peaky,” he told BBC News in 2021, adding on Diversity, “There will be other TV shows, that I hope will emerge from it, that will continue to tell the story of that part of society and this family. “

There was no word on what these potential shows could be, but Knight has indicated he has the writing duties would likely pass it on to someone else for new entries into the Peaky Universe.
