And when Peaky Blinders returned for its sixth season in February after a nearly three-year hiatus, fans were excited to see how Tommy Shelby would defeat his many enemies.

Season 6 has been delayed by the pandemic and the untimely death of one of the show’s lead actresses, Helen McCrory.

Season 6 follows Tommy Shelby as he plots revenge on those who have wronged him – a daunting list that includes fascist politician Oswald Mosley and the IRA.

But now that Season 6 has wrapped, fans are dying to know if Tommy Shelby will return to the big or small screen.

Here’s everything you need to know:

When does season 6 end?

Arthur Shelby struggled with addiction in Season 6

Peaky Blinders ended in its current form on April 3rd when the final episode aired on BBC One.

Shelby has lost loved ones, continued to be pulled away from his wife Lizzie, and dealt with his own health struggles.

It was the longest episode of the entire series, with a feature length of 81 minutes.

The episode, titled Lock and Key, has the vague and unsettling synopsis: “As the clouds of the coming storm gather, Tommy Shelby faces the consequences of his experiences and his actions.”

Lock and Key saw one last deadly confrontation between Tommy and his cousin Michael Gray and scores were settled with Oswald Mosley and the IRA.

In the final, Tommy Shelby meets Oswald Mosley

No, there won’t be another season of Peaky Blinders, the season 6 finale is your last chance to see Tommy Shelby in action, at least on the small screen.

This marks a change from creator Steven Knight’s original plans when he said in 2018 there would be a seventh season.

However, Knight is keen on continuing the story of Birmingham’s most famous outlaws and has spoken of the season six finale as the end of the beginning.

Will there be a Peaky Blinders movie?

That’s the question, isn’t it? From what we know so far, there’s been extensive talk of a Peaky Blinders movie, although details on characters and plot are sketchy.

He said that the sixth feature-length season finale was a dry run for the film and that a film would explore two main storylines.

But while Knight was adamant that Cillian Murphy would reprise his role as Tommy Shelby for the film, the actor was a little more reluctant, telling Esquire that nothing had been confirmed.

Given that the final season of the television series is set in the mid-1930s, a film would be expected to take us at least as far as the start of World War II.

In an interview with Deadline, Murphy said, “I would be as excited as anyone to read a script. But I think it’s good for everyone to have a little break. That’s always healthy and then we can regroup.

“Steve is an incredibly busy and in-demand writer, but I know what he loves most of all is writing Peaky […] So I think when the time comes, when there’s more to tell, I’ll be there.”

How can I watch Peaky Blinders Season 1-6?

You can now watch all episodes from seasons one to five and the currently available season six episodes on BBC iPlayer.

The season finale will be available to watch on iPlayer after it airs on April 3rd.
