Cillian Murphy’s British crime series Peaky Blinders finally has a stateside premiere date. TVLine shared the updated release info on Thursday, March 10. Peaky Blinders season 6 has already debuted on BBC One, marking the first season without actress Helen McCrory who passed away from cancer last April at 52.

The sixth season is also the last of the acclaimed series, which will come to an end this April. But fans in the United States won’t get to watch for a few more months, as Netflix revealed the new season won’t drop on Netflix U.S. until June.

Debuting in 2013, Peaky Blinders follows the exploits of a gang led by crime boss Tommy Shelby (Murphy) in Birmingham, England. Besides Murphy and McCrory, Peaky Blinders has featured many renowned actors throughout its five-season run, such as Tom Hardy, Annabelle Wallis, Paddy Considine, Adrien Brody, Anya Taylor-Joy, Sam Claflin, Stephen Graham, Charlotte Riley, Iddo Goldberg, Sam Neill and Aidan Gillen.

Peaky Blinders season 6 Netflix U.S. release date

All six episodes of the British drama’s sixth and final season will premiere on Friday, June 10. That’s much later than we previously predicted. Peaky Blinders season 4 and season 5 were made available on Netflix in North America within a couple of weeks of the U.K. premiere.

The series finale is scheduled to premiere on BBC One on April 6, so we assumed that the new season would make it to Netflix U.S. by the end of April, either April 8 or 15, since Netflix usually releases big shows on Fridays. That would have fit with the timeline shared by the two previous seasons.

Instead, North American fans will have to stick to the first five seasons until June. Hopefully, the end of this beloved series is worth the extended wait! What do you hope to see happen in the show’s six final episodes?
