Here are some things that fans must know before season 6 of the hit TV series arrives.
Five things to know about Peaky Blinders before season 6
1) Season 6 is confirmed to be the last season of the show to be released in early 2022
Peaky Blinders season 6 is almost here, much to the joy of fans who have been eagerly waiting to watch new episodes since the spine-chilling season 5 ended. The filming of season 6 started in 2021, but the pandemic hindered the production process.
Steven Knight dropped clues on speculative release dates that hinted at a time in early 2022. With the trailer officially dropping, fans are thrilled for the release.
2) Tom Hardy will return as Alfie Solomons in the final season
It came as a surprise to see Tom Hardy returning as Alfie Solomons in season 6. It was an unexpected turn of events as Alfie was shot in the head earlier on in the show. The trailer was quick to go viral, showing Alfie Solomons meeting with Thomas Shelby in-person.
3) Stephen Graham has befittingly joined the Peaky Blinders cast

4) The first episode of season 6 is called Black Day

Fans are urged not to be disappointed because Steven Knight confirmed in his talks with Empire Magazine that his plan was to end it with a movie and that is exactly what the fans are going to get.
Steven Knight also said in his interview,
"I think of the sixth series as the end of the new beginning."
