Cillian Murphy of course returns as starring character Tommy Shelby and Paul Anderson returns as his brother Arthur. Also set for a return are the likes of Tom Hardy, Anna Taylor-Joy and Sophie Rundle. Stephen Graham also appears in the trailer, which means he's set to join the cast in season 6.

What can we expect from Peaky Blinders 6?

The sixth season is being teased by BBC as explosive and dramatic with "one last deal to be done". The trailer suggests we're set to see Tommy continue his political life as a labour leader, amid the back drop of Nazism. Elsewhere it looks like old bets need to be settled, with the appearance of Tom Hardy's character Alfie Solomons in the trailer.

So far, there is no news on how the absence of Helen McCroy's character Polly, after she sadly passed away in April last year.

As Deadline reports, creator and writer Steven Knight previously said of the sixth season, “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher. We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”

Does this mean we're set for a spin off or even a feature film?

Knight has also recently revealed that the show will go beyond the start of WWII, which is not what he originally envisioned for the series.

“It was always Britain between the wars – how the lesson from one war was not learned and was repeated,” he told Empire magazine. “It’s also the end of empire: we enter the Second World War and by the end of it, there is no empire, really.

“But I… have revised the scope of what it is. It will now go into and beyond the Second World War. Because I just think the energy that is out there in the world for this, I want to keep it going, and I want to see how this can progress beyond that.”

He added: “I think of this sixth series as the end of the beginning.”
