“Never say never, but we feel that [series] five may be the last. We don’t know for sure. We will see how we feel about it. Peaky is one of those things everybody loves, and the response has been so magnificent on both sides of the Atlantic.
Whether the curtain falls with Season 5 or 6, Knight knows how Peaky will end:
“I have got the end in my mind; whether that happens at the end of five is the question. I want it to end when the first air raid siren sounds in Birmingham.
It is a story of a family between two world wars. It begins in 1919 when they have just come back from the war and the family’s journey is towards legitimacy and respectability and to leave their past behind. The big question of the whole series is this: is that possible?”
While the endgame looms, Peaky Blinders Season 4 premieres late 2017, with the fifth and potentially final season slated for a 2018 release.
Will Peaky Season 5 be the end of the show as planned, or will it stretch into Season 6? Stay tuned…
