Peaky Blinders: Grace confronts Tommy in dramatic moment
When is Peaky Blinders season 6 out?
The sixth season of Peaky Blinders has not yet been given an official release date on the BBC.
When season five came out back in August 2019, it was suggested by the show’s director Anthony Byrne the new series would be out in early 2021.
This was because production was set to begin in March 2020 before it was postponed in the wake of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
However, it was only in January 2021 production was able to finally start on the latest series.
Byrne confirmed this with a photo of star Cillian Murphy getting the classic haircut.

The latest update on when it might be out came from Byrne in an interview with Digital Spy.
During this, he revealed they are working to filming in early next year which means the show could be delayed until 2022 as a result of the pandemic.
He said: “That feels achievable. Whether that’s true or not, I have no idea.
“If we did start shooting in January  we wouldn’t finish until May or June and then it’s another six months of editing.”
Alongside this, star Paul Anderson also teased on his Instagram page how the show would be returning “soon.”
As soon as an actual release date is announced, Express.co.uk will update this article.
Who is in the cast of Peaky Blinders season 6?
All of the major members of the cast are expected to return in season six of the show, including Cillian Murphy as Tommy Shelby.
This includes Helen McCrory as Polly Gray, Finn Cole as Michael Gray, Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby, Natasha O’Keeffe as Lizzie Shelby and Sophie Rundle as Ada Shelby.
Tom Hardy’s Alfie Solomons made a dramatic reappearance at the end of season five, which might mean he’ll be back again as well.
At the end of season five, Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) did escape with his life and it has been confirmed he will be returning as well.
As well as this, Gina Gray (Anya Taylor-Joy) is also expected back and director Byrne has hinted her family will be introduced.
Back in April, Stephen Graham announced he would be joining the cast of the new series but it is unclear whether he will still appear.
He told the Pound for Pound podcast: “I was supposed to be starting Peaky Blinders but that has been put on hold indefinitely.
“Luckily I was in a really good position where I was going to go from job to job for the next three years.
“My agent spent a lot of time putting that together – and obviously the rug just got pulled from under our feet.”
There have also been rumours Julia Roberts may join the cast as well.
As well as this, some rumours emerged recently about Rowan Atkinson joining the cast, potentially as Hitler. However, the BBC has denied this.

What will happen in Peaky Blinders season 6?
Fans will remember how season five ended on a cliffhanger with Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) holding a gun to his head.
According to Byrne, this will be how the new series will pick up in season six.
He told Digital Spy: “It picks up directly. So, the very first image you will see will be back in that field.
“Tommy, with a gun to his head. Then, we will move on from there, we resolve that amazing moment – it’s great.”
Viewers will also be hoping to find out who actually betrayed him and scuppered his plans to kill Mosley.

The series writer Steven Knight has also revealed there will be a time jump going into the next season as well.
He told NME: “In series six, we’ll be looking at 1934 and things are worse.
“The drum beat is getting louder, tensions are worse and Tommy is right in the middle of all that.
“Again, it will be an exploration of what was going on in the ’30s and how certain things transpired.”
Sadly, the show will also be the final season of the show, which was previously hoped to continue into season seven.
Knight said: “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.”
Is there a trailer for Peaky Blinders season 6?

This is expected to be released nearer the release date of the upcoming outing in later 2021 or early 2022.
