The sixth season of Peaky Blinders has been streaming since June 8, 2022 on Netflix. As the six episodes quickly came to an end, fans of the Shelby family wonder if this is really the end of the adventures for the Birmingham gangsters.
The final season of the Peaky Blinders
Launched in 2013Peaky Blinders quickly won over its audience with its shenanigans and charismatic protagonist, Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy).

In six episodes, the Peaky Blinders series ended, because no, there will be no seventh season.
A film and a spin-off series?
Don’t worry, just because there won’t be a season 7 doesn’t mean you won’t see Thomas Shelby or the Peaky Blinders again. The creator of the series Steven Knight has every intention of putting an end to their story… But at the cinema. When the seventh season was canceled, it was finally replaced by a movie. Steven Knight then told Deadline “The Covid changed our plans. But I can say that I always intended to end Peaky Blinders with a film. This is what will happen“.
The creator also promises that the end of the Peaky Blinders route will indeed take place in Birmingham, Where it all began. The film has yet to be officially announced and therefore has no release date, although Steven Knight has made it known that he would like filming to begin in 2023. The creator of Peaky Blinders also foresees other spin-offs integrated into the same universewithout necessarily involving the Shelbys… Business to follow.
