The last season of Peaky Blinders will not be the end of the series. Steven Knight, the show’s creator, has been hard at work on a spinoff feature film that will shut the book on the series for good, even if Season 6 has come to a conclusion. According to a recent interview with NME, production might begin as soon as the film’s screenplay is nearing completion. In the interview, Knight said, “Yes, I’m writing it right now. Almost done with the script, and we’re shooting soon.” My plans include the construction of film and television facilities in Birmingham’s Digbeth neighbourhood.
In addition to being held in Knight’s own properties in Birmingham, the venues were selected for their historical significance. “We are going to shoot it at the studios in Digbeth, and on site in Digbeth in Birmingham,” Knight said, referring to the real-life Peaky Blinders. For real, Peaky Blinders strolled about Digbeth and Small Heath. As a result, it’s like Peaky is finally returning home. Aside from that, Knight said that filming might commence within the next 18 months, which is in line with his earlier statements. Possible start date of 2023 was mentioned by him back in 2021 at the BFI Film Festival, so it appears that everything is still on track. In spite of the fact that the film’s release date is still a long way off, it appears to be wrapping up the Shelby family and their gang’s saga.
Fans can expect to see familiar faces as well as a slew of brand-new ones in the film, as Knight teased in the interview with IGN. Following Tommy Shelby (Cilian Murphy) and his gang, Peaky Blinders has become one of the most popular British television series in recent memory. There have been several accolades for the programme over its existence, including a BAFTA Award for Best Drama Series in 2018. On the basis of the genuine street gang, the show portrayed Shelby’s reign as a leader as they strove to grow beyond their Birmingham base.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the highly anticipated Season 6 has a 100% rating, making it the show’s final season. In light of the fact that this film will be seen as the final chapter in the saga, director Christopher Knight emphasised the need of making it an event for the whole fandom. Nonetheless, “I’m really looking forward to organising a Peaky event where everyone can see it together,” he said. I mean, the online community is so vibrant and kind that it’s amazing. However, it will be fascinating to be together in person. Netflix has all of the Peaky Blinders available to watch right now.
