Peaky Blinders season 6 release date updates, cast, renewal, synopsis, and more

Peaky Blinders season 6 is coming to Netflix soon, and we have some new release date updates to share with fans.

Peaky Blinders season 6 is not coming out in 2021. Based on an interview with Peaky Blinders star Conrad Khan, it appears the Peaky Blinders season 6 release date will be in 2022.

The British TV drama Peaky Blinders has been nothing but immensely popular ever since the TV series premiered on Netflix back in 2013. The critical acclaim speaks for itself.

The show currently has an amazing score of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and a strong 8.8 out of 10 on IMDb. Peaky Blinders even went on to win several BAFTA Awards, including the coveted award for Best Drama Series in 2018.

How many seasons of Peaky Blinders are there?

As of right now, there are five seasons of the original series available to watch on the streaming platform.

Each season of the show contains six episodes, and each episode runs for about an hour or so.

Will there be a Peaky Blinders season 6?

Fortunately, for fans of the crime series, there is going to be a sixth season of Peaky Blinders. However, it was also announced that the upcoming season would ultimately be the last season for the show…as you know it.

According to Variety, season 6 will, in fact, be the final season of the show, but the creator of the show, Steven Knight, hinted at something more. Knight told Variety:

“While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”

Though it’s pretty unclear as of now what “another form” would look like for Peaky Blinders, we are certainly grateful that we don’t have to bid a farewell to Cillian Murphy so soon.

Peaky Blinders season 6 cast

Speaking of Tommy Shelby, the cast of the sixth season seems to have gone through small changes with Charlie Murphy, who plays Jessie Eden, not returning for the upcoming season. For the most part, the main cast will stay the same with Murphy, Finn Cole, Paul Anderson, and Sophie Rundle reprising their respective roles.

Additionally, a few of our favorite recurring characters are coming back including The Queen’s Gambit actress Anya Taylor-Joy as Gina Gray, but what’s Peaky Blinders without a couple of new faces.

Black Mirror actress Amber Anderson was announced to be joining the cast of season 6, along with Stephen Graham, James Frecheville, and Conrad Khan, according to The Digital Fix.

We shared the Peaky Blinders season 6 cast below!

  • Cillian Murphy
  • Paul Anderson
  • Finn Cole
  • Anya Taylor-Joy
  • Sam Claflin
  • Sophie Rundle
  • Amber Anderson
  • Natasha O’Keeffe
  • Harry Kirton
  • Packy Lee
  • Daryl McCormack
  • Emmett J Scanlan
  • Stephen Graham
  • James Frecheville
  • Conrad Khan
  • Amber Anderson

It’s unclear if Helen McCrory, who played Aunt Polly in Peaky Blinders, will be in season 6. McCrory passed away shortly after production started in the spring of 2021.

How many episodes are in Peaky Blinders season 6?

Based on the number of episodes in previous seasons, it’s safe to say that there will be the standard six episodes for the sixth installment of the series.

However, given that this is the final season, that number could change to accommodate a special sendoff.

When is Peaky Blinders season 6 filming?

It seems that filming for season 6 began as early as January of this year based on this tweet from the show’s official Twitter.

Production has since ended on Peaky Blinders season 6. The final season is now in post-production, and it should be winding down soon. 

Peaky Blinders season 6 release date

We thought there was a chance we could see Peaky Blinders season 6 on Netflix in late 2021, but that’s not going to happen.

Conrad Khan, who stars in Peaky Blinders, revealed to Radio Times that Peaky Blinders season 6 would likely premiere in early 2022, possibly in February 2022.

Here’s what Khan told Radio Times:

“That comes out, from what I last heard –  I mean, these things change so quickly – I think that will come out next February, the beginning of next year.”

So, that’s the best prediction for the Peaky Blinders season 6 release date. If that’s happening, we should learn the premiere date within the next few months.

We have to anticipate this remains to be true. Because it airs in the UK, we should find out the release date shortly (assuming the new season is coming in February 2022).

When is Peaky Blinders season 6 on Netflix?

New seasons of Peaky Blinders are added to Netflix a few weeks after the full season airs in the UK. So, Peaky Blinders season 6 will arrive on Netflix about two weeks after the season finale. That’s what happened with Peaky Blinders season 5.

If the new season premieres in February and there are six episodes, we would assume that the season will end sometime in March or April 2022. Then, we’ll see the new season arrive on Netflix about two weeks after that.

For now, expect to see Peaky Blinders season 6 on Netflix as early as April 2022 and as late as May 2022.

We’ll share the official Netflix release date when it’s announced.
