Peaky Blinders fans are desperate to find out what’s in store for Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) after a dramatic conclusion to season five of the BBC drama. The Birmingham bad boy was last seen holding a gun to his head while talking to a vision of his dead wife. However, a Peaky Blinders star who was largely absent in the latest series may return to the forefront to save Tommy. 

In the dramatic finale, Tommy’s plan to kill Sir Oswald Mosley (Sam Clafin) tragically backfired. 

Tommy hoped to assassinate the politician leader but his failed plan led to several of his associates being killed. 

While Alfie Solomons (Tom Hardy) disrupted the Birmingham Blackshirts rally, Barney Thomas (Cosmo Jarvis) was tasked with killing Oswald. 

However, the Peaky Blinder was betrayed and Barney was killed before he could take down the politician.

The rally descended into violence and Tommy felt responsible for the deaths of those who supported him. 

Tommy had been haunted by the death of Grace Shelby (Annabelle Wallis) throughout the fifth season and his struggles came to a head in the finale.

In the final scene, Tommy called out to a vision of Grace before holding a gun to his head and fans will have to wait to discover his fate. 

However, a member of the Peaky Blinders gang who’s been largely absent in the last series could return to save Tommy. 

Jeremiah Jesus star Benjamin Zephaniah has dropped a huge hint while discussing his role in the drama.

The preacher is a long time member of the Peaky Blinders after fighting in the war alongside Tommy, proving support and guidance to the members. 

The actor joined the drama in series one but revealed he didn’t think the show would succeed as well as it has. 

He told The Mirror: “I remember sitting down with Cillian and saying that a gangster show set in 1920s Birmingham, we didn’t think it was going to take off really.”

“I knew of the Peaky Blinders because I was interested in history, in the football clubs and the factories.

“The Peaky Blinders actually ruled for quite a short time, there were a number of gangs in Birmingham at that time.”

In recent seasons the actor’s screen time has been restricted but hinted there was room for him to become move involved in the future. 

“People have asked me if there’s more from me,” he said. “I’m a street preacher, although I’m linked to the Peaky Blinders I’m doing my own thing,” he continued.

“I was the eyes and ears for Tommy, and he would come to me to see what’s going on.

“But now the Peaky Blinders have got richer and they live in mansions they don’t see me as much, and that suits me.”

Will Jeremiah give Tommy the guidance he needs to move forward and past the past behind him?
