Peaky Blinders: Tommy gets arrested following shoot out

Peaky Blinders is a period crime series which has gone from strength to strength over the years. It came out in 2013 and the most recent series, in 2019, was moved from its home on BBC Two to the primetime setting of BBC One. There has been talk of a movie coming out, but when is the release date for the Peaky Blinders film?

When is the Peaky Blinders film coming out?

At present, while a film has been confirmed, no information on its production has been revealed.

As a result, no release date has actually been set, as the future of the programme is still uncertain.

Five series of the programme have already been shown, and two further seasons were meant to come out.

However, it was recently revealed the sixth season, which will air in 2021, will be the last, with the series creator leaving fans tantalised at the prospect of a movie.

Speaking on January 18 about the show, showrunner Steven Knight said: “Peaky is back and with a bang. 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.

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

Executive producer Caryn Mandabach added: “Along with our wonderful, supportive, partners at BBC and Netflix, we have been working diligently to ensure we can get Peaky safely back into production; the safety of our cast and crew is always our priority.

“Thank you to all the Peaky fans who have been so unwaveringly supportive and patient.

“Steve’s scripts are incredible and mark the end of an epic story that has entranced audiences since it first started in 2013, but the world of Peaky Blinders will most definitely live on.”

Both of these comments make clear there is an intention for the show to continue, but evidently the series will be something completely different.

Since then, Steven has thrown more fuel on the fire, confirming the intention for a film, telling Deadline: “Covid changed our plans. But I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie. That is what is going to happen.”

None of the cast have spoken out on this but fans will be hoping, like the recently and wildly successful Downton Abbey movie, the cast will come together for one last huzzah.

As well as Downton Abbey, Peaky Blinders would be in good company with Breaking Bad, another crime series which eventually moved to Netflix and, as well as spin-off series Better Call Saul, also saw a feature-length programme come to the channel: El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.

Therefore, while the film looks as though it is going ahead, little is known about the project extra to that.

What is Peaky Blinders?

Peaky Blinders is a crime drama set in Birmingham, following the exploits of the Shelby crime family.

The series starts when Thomas Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) has returned from the First World War a completely different man, who immediately becomes a fearsome crime boss.

Over the course of the different seasons he has come up against different opponents, whether it is fellow gangsters, police, IRA and others.

The fictional family is loosely based on a real urban youth gang of the same name, who were active in the city from the 1890s to the early 20th century.
