AceShowbiz - Hit period crime drama "Peaky Blinders" is set to end after the upcoming season six.
The British series, which revolves around the dealings of the powerful Shelby crime family in post-World War One Birmingham, England, recently began production on new episodes after months of delay due to the COVID-19 shutdown, and on Monday (18Jan21), creator Steven Knight announced the TV show would end after one more season.
However, he also revealed fans could look forward to more "Peaky Blinders" antics in the future, although he stopped short of offering up any further details.
"Peaky is back and with a bang," Knight shared in a statement. "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."
"Peaky Blinders" stars Cillian Murphy as Tommy Shelby, the head of the family, alongside Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Finn Cole, and Aidan Gillen. "The Irishman" 's Stephen Graham was also previously revealed to be joining the cast of season six.
A premiere date for the sixth and final run has yet to be set.
