“Peaky Blinders” finale on Netflix: That’s what viewers can expect



The sixth and final season of the British drama series “Peaky Blinders” with Cillian Murphy (45) will be released on Netflix on June 10th. The final episodes conclude the series – but not the story of the Peaky Blinders.

Sixth season “Peaky Blinders”: That’s what it’s about

In 2013, the first season of the series about the eponymous gang from Birmingham and the Shelby family premiered. The series, which is set in the 1920s and 1930s, quickly won many fans thanks to its dark look and the matching soundtrack (especially “Red Right Hand” by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds). The special style of the gang members with their flat caps, suits, coats and pocket watches was also celebrated. The last season was broadcast on the BBC from February 2022, with the finale following in early April. Now Netflix users can look forward to the latest episodes with Tommy Shelby and his machinations.

A trailer for the sixth season shows some returnees: In addition to Tom Hardy (44) as Alfie Solomons, Anya Taylor-Joy (26), Sophie Rundle (34), Sam Claflin (35) and Finn Cole (26) will also appear in the final episodes their roles return. Cole becomes more and more of a danger to Tommy as a vengeful cousin Michael, always at his side wife Gina (Taylor-Joy). He also has to deal with the growing political tensions and the approaching Second World War. After being diagnosed with a serious illness, he begins to put his affairs in order at the Shelby Company Limited…

Season without Helen McCrory

In the final season, an important role will be missing. Helen McCrory (1968-2021) played Polly Gray (née Shelby), Tommy’s aunt and often the voice of his conscience. The British actress died in April 2021 at the age of 52 of complications from cancer. “I think the whole series is really a tribute to her and to honor her,” Cillian Murphy told Variety. “Her presence and the presence of her character is still felt on the show, and is an integral part of Tommy’s journey throughout the season.”

So it goes on for the “Peaky Blinders”.

Series creator Steven Knight (62) had already promised several offshoots of the gangster saga to “Entertainment Weekly”. After the sixth and final season, not only a film is to come, but several spin-offs. Knight has not revealed whether the offshoots will be series or films.

Filming on the first Peaky Blinders movie is slated to begin in 2023. According to the showrunner, the theatrical spin-off will conclude the story of the gang from Birmingham. “After that, depending on how the structure of the film unfolds, we’ll be rolling out a few spin-offs that will be part of the same universe,” said the Peaky Blinders boss.
