Peaky Blinders: after the series, a movie is coming

Fans of the TV series can breathe a sigh of relief: after the sixth and final season, a feature film or spin-off inspired by the title could be coming. Here are the details.

Peaky Blinders in recent years has placed itself at the top of the Olympus of TV series, accruing incredible success around the world. It is in fact one of Netflix's main titles, as well as one of the longest running.

To date, the first five seasons can be watched on the platform, while a sixth and final one is in the works. As has happened with other products, the filming of Peaky Blinders has also been delayed due to the pandemic. One will have to wait about a year to watch the new episodes. In recent hours, the creator of the show Steven Knight leaked a very interesting news: the series will end, but the story of Peaky Blinders will continue in another form. Following this anticipation, fans immediately speculated that it will be a movie inspired by the series. The story will focus on the war between two rival families, but the future of the project also depends on the results of the sixth and final season.

Peaky Blinders: a spin-off or a movie coming soon?

Fans of the show have been waiting for a year now for the release of new episodes, which were postponed due to the pandemic. In the last few hours, two news related to the Netflix series have come out: the first is that, finally, the production of the sixth season has begun; the second is that the story will be turned into a movie to be shown in theaters when the situation returns to normal.

Both news were given by creator Steven Knight in a statement. He warned that the series is coming back "with a bang." He assures that it will be the most spectacular and exciting of the entire cycle, because the intention is to end in the best possible way, leaving a magical memory in the minds of the audience.

He then gives an anticipation on the plot: we will find the Shelby family in extreme risk, but everything will be handled without leaving out a single detail. At the end of the note, he then launches an anticipation on the evolution of the show: "Even if the series is about to end, the story will continue in another form". And this is the icing on the cake and probably means that Peaky Blinders will land on the big screen. Also because rumors about a probably movie have been going around for more than a year already. Some, however, speak of a spin-off set between the World Wars. To have certain news we will have to wait for official news.

Peaky Blinders 6: exit

Those who have not yet started Peaky Blinders can still take advantage to recover the old episodes, available on Netflix. After all, the release of the sixth season has not been made official.

Executive producer Caryn Mandabach had spoken in recent weeks about a strict safety protocol for the cast and crew involved in the project: "Safety is our priority. Thank you to all the "Peaky" fans who have been so patient and supportive. Steve's scripts are incredible and mark the end of an epic story that has entertained audiences since it began in 2013, but the world of "Peaky Blinders" will certainly go on."

And how can you blame him? Peaky Blinders is one of the most successful products in recent years, and letting it end with the TV series would be a wasted opportunity. Those who loved this title can still find similar ones on the various streaming platforms.
