Fans of Peaky Blinders spent almost an entire decade following the misadventures of the Shelby family, but all good things must come to an end. The critically acclaimed crime drama will come to a close after its sixth season, which is currently underway.
Peaky Blinders previously went on a production delay due to COVID-19, and executive producer Caryn Mandabach thanked the fans for patiently waiting for the show to resume filming under the safety guidelines.
“Thank you to all the Peaky fans who have been so unwaveringly supportive and patient. Steve’s scripts are incredible and mark the end of an epic story that has entranced audiences since it first started in 2013, but the world of Peaky Blinders will most definitely live on,” said Mandabach.
Creator Steven Knight echoed her statement and promised that the story will “continue in another form”. He also added that the upcoming season will be the best of all, and said that the stakes have never been higher.
Since its premiere in 2013, Peaky Blinders followed the lives of a gangster family based in Birmingham, England following the end of World War I. Its main cast includes Cillian Murphy, Paul Anderson, Helen McCrory, and Sophie Rundle.
