Published Jan 18, 2021The long-running British gangster drama Peaky Blinders is coming to an end, but not without one last season.
Following coronavirus production delays, the series is finally back in production for its sixth season. Today, producers confirmed that Season 6 will be its last.
In a statement, creator Steven Knight said, "Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the COVID pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher. We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form."
Executive producer Caryn Mandabach added that the show may continue its story beyond Season 6 in one form or another.
"Along with our wonderful, supportive, partners at BBC and Netflix, we have been working diligently to ensure we can get Peaky safely back into production; the safety of our cast and crew is always our priority," Mandabach said. "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."
Outside of the UK where it's shown on BBC One, Peaky Blinders airs on Netflix.
