Despite its immense success, the future of this show seems a little unclear, but don’t worry, we are here to clean it up for you.
How Many Seasons Of Peaky Blinders Are There?
As of right now, you will find five seasons of the original series available to watch on the streaming platform.
Every season of the series includes six episodes, and each episode runs for about an hour or so.
Is There Going To Be A Season 6 Of Peaky Blinders?
Fortunately, for fans of this crime series, there will be the sixth season of Peaky Blinders. But it was also announced that the upcoming season would finally be the final season for the series…as you know it.
Season 6 will, in reality, be the final season of the series, but the inventor of the show, Steven Knight, hinted at something longer.
“Even though the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”
Even though it’s fairly unclear as of today what” another form” would seem like for Peaky Blinders, we are certainly grateful we don’t have to run a farewell to Cillian Murphy so soon.
Talking of Tommy Shelby, the cast of this sixth season appears to have gone through small changes with Charlie Murphy, who plays Jessie Eden, not returning to the upcoming season. For the most part, the main cast will stay the same with Murphy, Helen McCrory, Finn Cole, Paul Anderson, and Sophie Rundle reprising their respective roles.
Additionally, some of our favorite recurring characters are coming back such as The Queen’s Gambit actress Anya Taylor-Joy as Gina Gray, but what is Peaky Blinders without two or three fresh faces.
Black Mirror actress Amber Anderson has been announced to be joining the cast of season 6.
How Many Episodes Are In Peaky Blinders Season 6?
Based on the number of episodes in previous seasons, it is safe to say that there will be the standard six episodes to the sixth installment of this series.
However, given that this is the final season, that amount could change to accommodate a particular sendoff.
