Peaky Blinders is a British crime drama TV series created by Steven Knight.
The story centres on the Peaky Blinders gang and their ambitious and highly cunning boss Tommy Shelby.
The gang comes to the attention of Major Chester Campbell, a Detective Chief Inspector in the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) sent over by Winston Churchill from Belfast, where he had been sent to clean up the city of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), Communists, gangs and common criminals.
A Quick Recap of Season 5 Finale:
Tommy informs Winston Churchill that he has joined the Fascist party to infiltrate and stop Oswald Mosley. Meanwhile, at the family meeting, Michael and Gina propose to restructure the Shelby company but Tommy clearly denies it. Michael then declares an open rebellion as he is casted out of the Shelby family.
Tommy and Arthur execute Mickey, the bartender after it’s discovered he was the one who informed on both Ben Younger’s meeting with Tommy prior to his death, as well as Arthur’s ambush at London.
Finn accidentally spills the assassination plan to Billy Grade, who runs the fixed football racket, who makes a telephone call even though he receives a bribe for his silence.
Tommy contacts Alfie Solomons as he needed help to stage a mutiny and cover the assassination of Oswald Mosely. The assassination plan backfires, as Barney is executed by an unknown person with a silencer pistol, and Aberama Gold is killed when he attempts to kill Jimmy McCavern and Mosley’s rally becomes successful.
The following day, Tommy’s torment over last night’s events and Grace’s apparition drive Tommy over the edge, screaming as he keeps a pistol pointed to his head, intent on committing suicide.

Months of hard work by our very talented, dedicated, and hardworking crew. Sets were built, costumes were made. Cameras and lenses were tested. Locations were booked. All the prep was done. It’s a real shame not to be able to make it for you at this time.” He also thanked his cast and crew members and assured us they would start again as soon as they were able.
