Peaky Blinders is already renewed through Season 5, but could the BBC period drama end (or extend) with a musical?
So far, there’s no definitive end date for Peaky, but a stage version of the UK series is a possibility, per Deadline:
While it’s early days, Knight tells me he has been approached by more than one “very, very respectable” party interested in helping bring the story of the Birmingham clan to the stage.
“Never say never,” says Knight, who adds, “I always like doing different things.”
As it’s early days, there is no word on what music would be used, but Knight says a stage production wouldn’t feature the current series’ cast. Star Cillian Murphy echoes that, telling me, “That’s another iteration that does not involve me. But it’s a mad enough idea that I’m sure it could be amazing. That’s what’s so brilliant about Steve is that he’s constantly coming up with these ideas. He’s so much more than a writer. He’s just an all around entrepreneur, or polymath. He’s just an extraordinary individual.”
Will Peaky Blinders end after Season 5 ? Will the BBC drama extend with a ‘Season 6’ musical? Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the survival status of Peaky Blinders…
