Peaky Blinders: Tommy and Polly feature in series five bonus clip

Peaky Blinders is coming to an end on the BBC after its sixth season airs. Given writer Steven Knight had always planned to end his show at the beginning of World War Two, some may be wondering if this will still happen now the show has been cut short. Here’s what’s been revealed so far about this and how the series may finally conclude.

Will Peaky Blinders still end with World War Two?

Writer and creator Knight has always been open about planning to end his gangster series with a seventh season.

However, this was unfortunately cut short by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

As a result, it was announced recently the upcoming sixth season will be the last.

The series has begun filming and has already been reported to take place in the early 1930s.

Therefore, some may be wondering if the news will also impact another of Knight’s plans for his show.

Back in August 2019, he told Express.co.uk and other media about how the last scene of his show will be the beginning of World War Two.

He explained: “I wanted to have a beginning, middle and end in terms of the storyline but I don’t ever set off with a plan.

“I set off with a destination usually. The main destination is the end of the whole thing, which is the start of the Second World War.

“And I know what scene that is going to be, I know how it’s going to end.”

However, given the show will only be having a short time jump to the early 1930s, it seems like this could be difficult. 

Exact story details about season six have not yet been confirmed ahead of the show’s launch.

Knight has simply said in a statement: “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.”

One plan may be to address World War Two in the upcoming Peaky Blinders film instead.

Speaking to Deadline, Knight confirmed this was on its way in a statement.

He said: “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.”

Again, very little is known about this, including what characters would appear in a film spin-off.

However, it could provide Knight with an opportunity to see out his series as he hoped.

As soon as any more is revealed about the direction of the show, Express.co.uk will keep viewers updated.

Peaky Blinders seasons 1-5 are available on Netflix now.
