Fans of the hit series “Peaky Blinders” have waited for new episodes for almost two years. They have to be patient even longer.
Peaky Blinders Season 6: Shoot With Obstacles
In the last one and a half years, the production of many series was struck by the coronavirus pandemic: production halts, sick actors, lockdowns, and much more. The virus does not stop at mega film and series productions either and not at super gangsters like the “Peaky Blinders”. Production of the 6th season could not begin until January of this year, and it has officially been filmed since June.
Series Makers Promise Great Things
While all fans long for the return of gangster boss Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy), the show’s makers have already revealed further details of the new season. It should be “epic” and start with a big “oomph”. Steven Knight, the creator of “Peaky Blinders”, says: “The bar has never been higher” and promises fans the best series of all time. But when will viewers see the sixth season?
Moreover, the creator has previously revealed that the sixth season will shed more light on Gina’s family, which will play a massive role in the upcoming season.
What Will Happen To Polly?
Late actress Helen McCrory passed away of cancer in April 2021. The actress portrayed the role of Polly Gray, one of the most loved characters of the show so far. The question about the future of Aunt Polly’s character is yet to be answered by the makers.
The makers have not indicated what they will do with the character. The most potential theory is that the character will get killed in the first episode of Season 6. The makers will consider not casting another actress to take over the role of late Helen McCory.
There Are No New Episodes
Of course, the 6th season of “Peaky Blinders” will be released. It is only unclear when that will be the case. The British broadcaster BBC owns the rights to the series and will set the tone for it. Like the previous five seasons, it also seems likely that the 6th will also be shown on Netflix. Fans now suspect that the September release date will be announced, and the rumours are growing towards spring 2022. Few think about the end of 2021. Because the previous seasons always took an average of one year of production time to air, It is more than unlikely that season 6 of “Peaky Blinders” will come in late 2021 or early 2022.
