Amidst all the rumors about the cancellation of season 6, the director of the series has made it all clear for us.

When will Peaky Blinders Season 6 release?

As per reports, the filming of the sixth season was supposed to be finished by the end of June 2024. But, some unfortunate circumstances didn’t even let the shoot start. The good part is that the pre-production is still in progress.

We were so close to the start of filming Season 6. Months of hard work by our very talented, dedicated and hardworking crew. Sets were built, costumes were made. Cameras and lenses 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. But I personally want to thank the crew that I’ve spent months working with and I want to send my love and support to them and everyone else. We are in this together. . . These are extraordinary times and we must be extraordinary in them. . . Remember who we all are as a people and look out for those around you who will find these times challenging. Dig deep. It will pass. . . Read that book that’s been staring at you for years. Write a poem, script, novel. Listen to music. Watch movies. Be creative. Make art. Share. Find the positive in all of this and use it. We will be better for it in the long run. Stay safe and healthy. Support the amazing people who are keeping the @nhsmillion going. Look after those around you and reach out to people. .

Expected Release Date

Since the shooting has not even begun, it will surely take some time to release. If the current circumstances around the globe improve at a good pace, we can expect Season 6 to release by the end of 2024 or somewhere before mid-2021.

What will be the plot of Peaky Blinders Season 6

We can expect the sixth season to be full of twists and turns. Sources suggest that this season will possibly be one of the most gripping seasons by far. But, there’s not much information available about the exact plot. However, we can get some hints from the end of the fifth season.

We will see if Thomas will stand against fascism. Also, a hint given by Steve Knight suggests that Thomas’ image will be transformed. He said that he wants Thomas Shelby to come out as a good person as Peaky Blinders Season 6 ends.
