Peaky Blinders Ends With Season 6 On Netflix, “On In One other Kind”
The bad news for fans of Peaky Blinders who stream Stateside on Netflix: the upcoming sixth season of the series will be the last. The good news: its story is somehow continued “in a different form”.
After the British crime drama debuted on BBC Two in September 2013 and hit Statesville via Netflix a year later, it followed an infamous gang in Birmingham, England in 1919, led by the violent Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy), a crime boss on the move puts in the world no matter what it costs.
Steven Knight, the inventor of Peaky Blinders, said in a statement Monday, “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the forced production delay due to the COVID pandemic, families are in extreme danger and the stakes have never been higher. We believe this will be the best show ever and we are sure our great fans will love it.
“As the TV series comes to an end, the story will continue in a different form,” he added.
Knight had previously said – back in May 2018, months after the season four finale aired – “My goal is to tell the story of a family between two wars. So I always wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham in 1939. It will take three more [seasons to get there]. ”
But instead of ending after seven seasons, it will now conclude its run with season six, which may not bow until early 2022.
