Peaky Blinders is present on the BBC, Netflix, BBC One, and BBC Two networks, and it had its first episode released in 2013. The name Peaky Blinders comes from a criminal gang based in Birmingham in 1919. The show had five seasons, and the fans are eagerly waiting for the sixth one.
The fifth season of the series ended in September last year, and the creators had plenty of time to work on a new season or at least put some ideas into practice.
Release Date of Season 6
The director of Peaky Blinders revealed for the public that a sixth season is coming for the show:
“I start later this year and then we shoot next year and I have no idea when it would be out, maybe early 2021, something like that?”
However, the production of the upcoming season had begun in 2020 but was put on hold due to reasons that you already guessed: the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, judging by the overall situation of the terrible virus, there’s a chance that the production will be delayed even more, but let’s hope that it won’t ne the case.
Peaky Blinders has an immense rating on IMDb (8.8), and its description of the storyline says as follows:
“Peaky Blinders is an English television crime drama set in 1920s Birmingham, England in the aftermath of World War I. The series, which was created by Steven Knight and produced by Caryn Mandabach Productions, Screen Yorkshire and Tiger Aspect Productions, follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family. Screen Yorkshire provided funding for the production through the Yorkshire Content Fund. It was the first production to receive funding from the Yorkshire Content Fund, which in turn made certain the majority of the show was filmed in Yorkshire as part of the deal.”
Peaky Blinders is one of the most-watched series as it has a viewership of 7.5 million, and it has won several awards like the Best Drama Series at 2018 BAFTA TV Awards.
