There was widespread speculation in 2019 that Graham would feature in an upcoming season of Peaky Blinders, however his appearance was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The actor confirmed the news during the Pound for Pound podcast in Spring last year.
Graham said: "I was supposed to be starting Peaky Blinders but that has been put on hold indefinitely.
"My agent spent a lot of time putting that together," he added.
It looks like the plans are back on as the This is England star was seen on set.
Cillian Murphy, who plays Tommy Shelby in the popular BBC series, was also spotted alongside Paul Anderson, who portrays the iconic Shelby brother, Arthur.
Filming for the sixth season of Peaky Blinders was delayed due to the pandemic, but resumed in January earlier this year.
This comes after Helen McCroy, who starred as Polly Gray, the aunt of the Shelbys, sadly passed away earlier this month, with fans paying tribute to the much-loved actress.

The show's creator, Steven Knight, described McCroy as "one of the great actors of her generation."
He told the Radio Times: "Helen McCrory was both the sovereign and the maid, regal and rebellious in the same minute."
Fans took to social media to pay tribute to the talented actress.
One fan said on Twitter: "Oh no, this is so sad, may she rest in peace, such a talented actress she will be soooo missed."
Another said: "Thinking of her family and @ThePeakyBlinder family.
"Tragic loss. Her performance as Polly is unforgettable."
