The wait for Peaky Blinders Season 6 just keeps on increasing every day. Fans are eagerly waiting for the popular British drama to air on Netflix as soon as possible. However, they are also not ready to bid the show a goodbye already. For those who don’t know, season 6 is the final season of the franchise. Although there’s always room for spin-offs, an original will always remain an original. Set in Birmingham post-World War period, the drama introduces us to Tommy Shelby and his family. One of the masterpieces of Netflix, the series has so far aired five seasons.
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Updates
We already know that Peaky Blinders Season 6 is definitely happening. The show first aired on the BBC network in the United Kingdom in 2013. Since then, the show has received several awards and accolades for its plot, acting, storyline, etc. However, the show received global recognition after Netflix picked it up for broadcasting. The show got renewed for a sixth season in 2018 and was scheduled to begin filming in 2020.
But just like all other shows, this one too got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite all the delays and interruptions, the show finally began its production in January this year and wrapped it up in May. Moreover, BBC also announced that season 6 will hail as the final season of the show. But the show creators definitely hinted towards a spin-off. We are extremely excited to see something new and different from the original franchise.
So far, there is no release date for Peaky Blinders Season 6. The fifth season aired on BBC in August 2019 and premiered its concluding episode on September 22, 2019. However, since then fans are desperately waiting for the sixth installment. The fifth episode consisted of six episodes, each about an hour long. As far as the sixth season is concerned, this is all we know. We already mentioned that the filming for season 6 began in January 2021 and ended in May 2021. Henceforth, the filming is already complete. Besides that, the show creators mentioned that they need at least six months post-production for editing and other stuff. Therefore, we can expect the final season to air sometime at the beginning of 2022.
