BAFTA winner Peaky Blinders has become of the most anticipated television series on Netflix. The latest season five was released in 2019 and ended on a hanger, which did not happen in its previous parts. The production of upcoming season six was stopped due to coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic. Now Peaky Blinders season 6 has resumed filming and it is confirmed to be the concluding one.
The makers officially announced that Peaky Blinders season 6 has resumed shooting. On the official site, creator and writer, Steven Knight, said that Peaky is “back and with a bang.” He stated that after the enforced production delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they find the “family in extreme” jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher. Knight expressed that they believe this will be the “best series of all” and are sure that the amazing fans will love it. He confirmed that while the TV series will be coming to an end, but the story will continue in another form.
Executive producer Caryn Mandabach said that along with their “wonderful, supportive, partners” at BBC and Netflix, they have been working diligently to ensure they can get Peaky Blinders last season safely back into production. He asserted that the safety of the cast and crew is always their priority. Mandabach thanked all the Peaky fans who have been so “unwaveringly” supportive and patient. He noted that Peaky Blinders season 6 will mark the end of an “epic story” that has entranced audiences since it first started in 2013, but the world of Peaky Blinders will “most definitely” live on.
