For the Shelby family, the darkest times have come, because now they are as weak as ever. Quarrels broke out between relatives and now only the memory of blood ties can save the family. Meanwhile, Thomas Shelby is trying to cope with his ailment, raise a worthy child, preserve the honor of his family and earn more money.
When will the series “Peaky Blinders Season 6” be released?
TV show creator Steven Knight has repeatedly stated that it wasn’t until season 7 that the Shelby family would end their existence, right before the outbreak of World War II. Then it became known that there would be no season 7, but most likely a separate movie would be released after season 6.
It is known that the shooting of the TV show “Peaky Blinders Season 6” was supposed to start in March 2020, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was postponed for almost a year. As a result, the production process began only in January 2021, which means that the premiere of new episodes will take place no earlier than the beginning of 2022.
In the 1920s, the name Shelby began to appear more and more on the streets of the city. People passed it by word of mouth until it became known that a large family is trying to crush all the criminal structures of Birmingham for themselves. The leader of the gang was the second oldest brother, Thomas Shelby. He was famous for his intelligence, cunning and insight.
Over the previous 5 seasons, no one has managed to defeat his spirit. But, as you know, even the lives of such people are not without losses. Having fallen in love with an aristocratic girl who tried to follow him, Thomas did everything possible to turn from a traitor into an ally. And later, Grace became his wife. Having given birth to a son, the woman soon died from an enemy bullet.
Next in line was one of the Shelby brothers, who managed to cross the road of the French mafia. This crippled the internal spirit of the family, and Thomas realized that he was experiencing health problems. In particular, his vision prevented him from doing business calmly – as a result, he had to wear glasses.
Each season is a new enemy who is trying to cash in on the state of the Shelby family. It seemed that the aunt of the Shelby brothers, Polly, had gone over to the side of the enemy, but only in the end it was the enemies who did not like such games. Polly specifically made the bandits understand that she was betraying her family, but in fact the whole operation was carried out under the strict control of Thomas.
In season 6, the surviving brothers and Polly’s son, whom she found recently, will continue to build their own empire. There are only two seasons ahead in which the Shelby family will tell us their story.

- Cillian Murphy has previously starred in popular TV shows. But the glory that came to him after the “Peaky Blinders” has become incomparable. True, the actor is very disappointed that most fans call him Thomas Shelby, because he wanted to appreciate his acting, and not the image that he created on the screen.
- Helen McCrory can leave the project in season 6 – this was accidentally mentioned by screenwriter Stephen Russell. There are several versions of the development of events of the 6th season, and if it is decided to choose one of them, then Polly will be in danger.
- It is noteworthy that the characters Michael and John are brothers, because in life the guys are real brothers. Finn was shaved bald – so the similarity between them was not striking. The remaining characters are not in real relationship with each other.
- Earlier, Steven Knight said that season 5 would be the last, but in the end everything turned out differently. The story needs to be told in full, and high ratings add enthusiasm to the participants in the “Peaky Blinders” project. Cillian Murphy adores her role and is very sad when she talks about closing the picture.
