Peaky Blinders will continue "in another form" after final season, the show's creator confirms

"The world of Peaky Blinders will most definitely live on"

Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has confirmed that the show will continue in another medium after the final season concludes - could that mean a movie is on the way?

Yesterday it was confirmed that Peaky Blinders was coming to an end with the upcoming sixth season.

"Peaky is back and with a bang," said creator and writer Steven Knight, in a statement announcing that the final season has started filming.

"After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher.  We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it."

He finished with the most intriguing part: "While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form."

His words were echoed by executive producer Caryn Mandabach.

"Series six marks the end of an epic story that has entranced audiences since it first started in 2013," said Mandabach, "but the world of Peaky Blinders will most definitely live on."


The official Peaky Blinders Twitter account also shared an image of star Cillian Murphy wearing a facemask, presumably on set for the new season.

There have been rumblings of a Peaky Blinders movie for a while. Steven Knight has previously said he intended to make seven seasons of the show, and then think about the movie - but with the show now concluding with the sixth season, plans seem to have changed.

"When we get to the end of the seven series, we’ll think about [the movie]," Knight told NME in 2019. "There’s still a lot of energy in it and places it can go. We’ve been thinking about spin-offs, and I’m also interested in doing something with the Second World War."

"The film is of interest, the ballet is of interest, the musical is of interest. I just like doing different things. I don’t want to hit the buffers and stop. I just know that there could be stuff that happens subsequently. It’s got such a following and loyalty now that it would just be great to keep it going."
