The Plot

The official synopsis for the upcoming season reads:

"Series five of Steven Knight's crime family saga finds the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere.

"When Tommy Shelby MP (Cillian Murphy) is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family's future but that of the entire nation."

Meanwhile, writer Steven Knight added:  “The story of the Peaky Blinders and of the Shelby family gets woven into the political fabric of Britain and Europe as the 1920’s end and the thirties begin. Tommy Shelby faces the darkest force he has ever faced and his struggle is as relevant today as it was then."

The Cast

Cillian Murphy is back as Tommy Shelby. All the major cast members from previous series will return (minus Joe Cole).

This includes Helen McCrory (Aunt Polly), Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby), Sophie Rundle (Ada Shelby), Kate Phillips (Linda Shelby) and Natasha O'Keeffe (Lizzie Stark).

Aidan Gillen and Jack Rowan return as father and son Aberama and Bonnie Gold.

Charlie Murphy (Jessie Eden), Kingsley Ben-Adir (Col Ben Younger), Harry Kirton (Finn Shelby), Packy Lee (Johnny Dogs), Ned Dennehy (Charlie Strong), Ian Peck (Curly) and Benjamin Zephaniah (Jeremiah Jesus) are also all returning.

 

New Castmembers

The Hunger Games' Sam Claflin plays Tommy's new far-right enemy Oswald Mosley, a real-life figure who became the leader for the British Union of Fascists in the UK in 1932.

Daryl McCormack joins the cast as Isaiah Jesus, while Anya Taylor-Joy will play new character Gina.

Emmett J Scanlan, Brian Gleeson, Kate Dickie, and Cosmo Jarvis are all set to feature,

Daryl McCormack, Andrew Koji, Elliot Cowan, Charlene McKenna and Neil Maskell will also appear.

When Will Peaky Blinders End?

Fans can expect a sixth and seventh series of Peaky Blinders. Writer Steven Knight confirmed the news after the programme won a BAFTA for Best Drama Series.

“My ambition is to make it a story of a family between two wars,” Knight explained, “So I’ve wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham in 1939. It’ll take three more series to reach that point.”

Will There Be A Peaky Blinders Movie?

Following the show's success on Netflix, creator Steven Knight and executive producer Caryn Mandabach have revealed they are in discussions about a film spin-off.

“There are many people in America that love ​Peaky Blinders and plenty of movie stars that want to be in the movie,” Mandabach told to Digital Spy. “We heard Julia Roberts wants to do it – but this is hearsay… I don’t really know for sure.”
