Will there be a Netflix’s Peaky Blinders Season 7?

Don't miss

The sixth season of Peaky Blinders left fans on the edge of their seats with a shocking finale that saw the Shelby family home go up in flames, Tommy Shelby narrowly escape death by his own hand, and his son Duke join the family business.

The season also dealt with the aftermath of Polly Gray’s death, which was announced in the first episode. Polly, played by the late Harry Potter star Helen McCrory, was the backbone of the Shelby family, and everyone felt her loss.

The season also explored the looming conflict between Tommy and his cousin Michael, who had ambitions to take over the family empire. The tension came to a head in the final episode when Tommy killed Michael in a brutal showdown.

‘Peaky Blinders’ season 6 premiered internationally on June 10, 2022, on Netflix. The season aired on BBC One (Poldark Season 6) from February 27, 2022, to April 3, 2022. It comprises six episodes of 55-82-minute runtime. As for the seventh season, this is what we know.

The production of the sixth season suffered delays due to the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. In January 2021, Knight said that although Peaky Blinders as a show would end after the sixth season, the story would continue in another form. A few days later, Knight told Variety that a Peaky Blinders film was developing. He also mentioned that other projects would be set in the same world.

“It’s a fully formed idea with a beginning, middle, and end,” the ‘Serenity’ director added. “And I think it’s going to be a fitting conclusion to the story told so far, but from it, there will be things I don’t really call spinoffs, but there will be other TV shows that I hope will come out of [it], that will continue to tell the story of this part of society and this family.”

Asked why he chose to do a film instead of a seventh season, Knight stated, “COVID came along, and we lost a year of production. So we put our heads together and thought it would be a good idea to do a movie instead of series seven.” The upcoming film can be considered the seventh season.

Either way, the project is yet to go into production. As a result, it will likely be a while before it comes out. If the production begins in 2023, the audience can expect Peaky Blinders season 7 or Peaky Blinders Movie film to come out sometime in Q2 2024.

In the ‘Peaky Blinders’ season 6 finale, Arthur kills McKee and her IRA associates to avenge Polly’s death. Meanwhile, on Miquelon Island, Tommy shoots and kills Michael. Tommy bids farewell to his family. However, he later discovers that Doctor Holford lied to him; he doesn’t have tuberculoma. Despite this, he spares Holford’s life. Duke kills Billy and throws Finn out of the Shelby Family and Peaky Blinders Gang. In the closing moments of the season, Tommy watches his wagon burn along with the last of his belongings before departing on his horse.

In the upcoming film, a new civil war within the Shelby family might start between Duke and Finn. If the film covers World War II, Tommy will probably return to Birmingham to protect his family, and that might put him at odds with people who had grown accustomed to his absence. Arthur might try to do something drastic, believing that Tommy is dead.
