Peaky Blinders is a Steven Knight-created British historical crime drama television series. It is set in Birmingham, England, and chronicles the adventures of the Peaky Blinders crime group in the immediate aftermath of World War I. The fictitious gang is partially based on the same-named real-life urban youth gang that operated in the city from the 1890s through the 1910s.
It stars Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, and Paul Anderson as Tommy Shelby, Elizabeth “Polly” Gray, and Arthur Shelby, the gang’s senior members. Recurring characters include Sam Neill, Annabelle Wallis, Iddo Goldberg, Charlotte Riley, Tom Hardy, Paddy Considine, Adrien Brody, Aidan Gillen, Anya Taylor-Joy, Sam Claflin, and Stephen Graham. It debuted on BBC Two on September 12, 2013, and was later relocated to BBC One for the fifth and forthcoming sixth series.
The fifth season debuted on BBC One on August 25, 2019, and concluded on September 22, 2019. Netflix acquired the rights to the programme in the United States and throughout the world in a deal with the Weinstein Company and Endemol. It was revealed in January 2021 that season six would be the final, followed by a spinoff film. The sixth season premiered on February 27, 2022.
You must be looking forward to hearing an update on the potential release date for ‘Peaky Blinders’ season 6 on Netflix. Everything we know about it is included here!
When Will Peaky Blinders Season 6 Be Available on Netflix?
Season 6 of Peaky Blinders, like the first five seasons, will be available on Netflix for you to binge-watch at your leisure.
Fans in the United States will have to wait a bit longer for the sixth and final season.
Netflix has not yet announced an exact release date, but based on the show’s prior release pattern, viewers should anticipate Peaky Blinders Season 6 to debut around spring 2022.
Peaky Blinders usually comes around a month after it has finished showing on BBC One in the United Kingdom.
The finale is set to air on Sunday, April 3 in the United Kingdom, therefore fans in the United States may expect the final season to air towards the end of April or early May this year.
For example, Season 5 premiered on Netflix in the United States on October 4, 2019, little over a month after the season finale aired in the United Kingdom on September 22.
The good news is that while US fans of the series will have to wait a little longer for the final season, they will be able to binge-watch the drama anytime they want. Every Sunday evening, fans in the United Kingdom must wait until 9 p.m. to find out what happens next in the world of Thomas Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy).
Meanwhile, fans in the United States have expressed their dissatisfaction with the fact that Season 6 will have to wait a bit longer, as well as their desire to prevent spoilers.
One follower tweeted: “To everyone else who thought Peaky Blinders was going to be on Netflix today and is now really disappointed. You are not alone yourself!”
A second fan has been added: “How can one view the new season of Peaky Blinders in the United States as someone who has seen all five seasons of Peaky Blinders on Netflix? Is there anyone out there?!”
A third person tweeted: “I don’t want to be held up by Netflix. I need to find a means to see Peaky Blinders’ final season like everyone else in the UK.”
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Plot
The Shelby family is thrown into turmoil in the season finale of the fifth season. As a result of his expulsion from Shelby’s organization for suggesting a restructure, Michael declares a state of rebellion against Tommy.
Aunt Polly was forced to retire from her position due to the occurrences. Tommy is preparing to assassinate Mosley, but the plot is compromised when Finn spills the beans to Billy Grade.
The rally starts, and Tommy’s men are executed, failing the preparations. Tommy falls out after seeing Mosley’s triumphant rally. Tommy yells as he raises a gun to his head and prepares to attempt himself the following morning, early in the morning.
The sixth season is intended to provide some respite for the viewers, who have been perplexed by Tommy’s apparent intention to commit himself throughout the series. Tommy is going through a difficult period, with difficulties coming from all directions.

The identity of Tommy’s betrayer, who was revealed in the fifth season finale, will likely be investigated more in season 6. We will also see more of Gina and her family this season.
In addition to these, the Second World War is on the horizon, as the first traces of war smoke can be seen in the distance, threatening to shake things up in England.
We may anticipate that their pre-war circumstances will influence Tommy and his comrades’ lives and objectives.
Peaky Blinders Season 6 Cast
Here’s who will return in Peaky Blinders Season 6…
Tommy Shelby is played by Cillian Murphy.
Peaky Blinders wouldn’t be Peaky Blinders without Cillian Murphy, who will return to reprise his role as Tommy Shelby. Tommy got himself into a lot of difficulty last season when his intentions to kill Nazi figure Oswald Mosley were foiled, and now he has to cope with the fallout.
Tommy is a key component of the series as the head of the Birmingham criminal gang, the Peaky Blinders, and the father of the Shelby Family. He is engaged in all of the big decisions and the consequences of those acts.
He differs from his brothers in that he is noted for being a very calm and perceptive man who relies on wit and ruthlessness rather than being quick to rage and making possibly unwise judgments. Tommy’s third kid, John, was assassinated in season 4, leaving just three Shelby brothers alive.
He is married to Lizzie Shelby (née Stark), with whom he has one daughter, Ruby. Tommy also has a son named Charles from a previous marriage.
Arthur Shelby is played by Paul Anderson.
Arthur Shelby is the eldest Shelby sibling, and he is considerably different from Tommy. He likes strength above intellect, and we’ve seen him go progressively insane throughout the series, notably when he kills a young child in the boxing ring by punching him to death after suffering from severe PTSD after his time in the war.
He’s also involved in the repercussions from the events of Season 5, in which we saw him take Tommy home and voice fear that his brother was “losing his mind” after the botched assassination attempt.
He has a tight but complicated connection with Tommy, and he is constantly attempting to prove himself to his younger brother, as Tommy is the gang leader, not him. Despite this, there is definitely a lot of trust between the two of them.
Finn Shelby is played by Harry Kirton.
Finn is the youngest Shelby brother and, owing to his age, the only one who did not participate in World War I. Despite being an established member of the Peaky Blinders, his elder brothers are always on the lookout for him as he grows into his place within the group. He looks to be considerably closer to Arthur in terms of sibling ties.
Finn was just 11 years old when we originally saw him in season 1, but by season 5, he had taken on additional duties, and the last time we saw him, he was in charge of observing bookmaker Billy Grade handle football betting business. During this period, he befriended and trusted Billy, but he was quickly taken advantage of.
Finn made the mistake of alerting Billy about Tommy’s plans to assassinate Oswald Moslely, putting the assassination in jeopardy and entirely destroying Tommy’s supposedly well-thought-out preparations.
Sophie Rundle in the role of Ada Thorne
Ada Shelby is the Shelby family’s lone female sister. She is the widow of Freddie Thorne, a notorious communist, and has one son named Karl Thorne. This romance began in season one and was kept a secret. In season 2, Freddie dies, prompting Ada to go to London.
Ada is initially ignored by the rest of the family owing to her political views, but by season 5, she is attending Peaky meetings despite not having any role in it. Ada spends the most of her time raising her kid, although she does pitch in when she can. She primarily handles legal purchases.
In season 5, Ada also begins a relationship with Ben Younger, whom Tommy approves of, but when he dies in a car accident, Ada’s situation becomes much more complicated because she is pregnant with his child and will now have to raise a second one without a father. She also admitted to Tommy that she didn’t love Ben but thought he was a “nice man.”
“Her story arc is that you can’t escape who you are and where you come from,” Sophie told us in an exclusive interview, “but when I look back on her journey, it’s evident she’s truly grown up.”
Lizzie Shelby is played by Natasha O’Keefe.
Lizzie is Tommy’s second wife and a former prostitute who now works for the Shelby Family and as Tommy’s personal assistant. Her connection with Tommy was certainly complex at first, when he disrupted her planned marriage to his brother John.
In season 4, Lizzie became pregnant and gave birth to their daughter Ruby, and the two grew more attached. They married in season 5, but their relationship is rocky, especially because Tommy has hallucinations of his late wife Grace.
Lizzie considers divorcing Tommy but never does, and decides to stay with him despite her concerns about him and his line of work.
Alfie Solomons is played by Tom Hardy.
Alfie is a ruthless and unpredictable Jewish gang boss who first appears in season 2 after sending Tommy Shelby a telegram to enlist his assistance in the continuing battle between the Jews and the Italians.
He’s been a key part of the series from their initial meeting, and although claiming to like and respect Tommy, he’s not hesitant to conduct business with his rivals on the side, indicating he’s the type of guy who puts himself before others.
With Season 5, Alfie decides to assist Tommy in the assassination of Oswald Mosley for £10,000, delivering an order to a group of his men to stage a demonstration during Mosley’s speech, diverting Mosley’s goons. He most likely consented because of Mosley’s anti-Semitism, giving him a personal incentive to wish him dead.
Alfie is listening to the radio as all of this is going on. However, things do not go as planned, and Alfie’s character is slated to return for an explosive season 6 as a result of his men’s inability to complete the mission.
Oswald Mosley is played by Sam Claflin.
Oswald Mosley is the Peaky Blinders’ public enemy number one, and they will no likely try to bring him down again now that he has survived season 5.
He was the real-life Minister of the Duchy of Lancaster, the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s deputy, and the Prime Minister of Great Britain’s Cabinet advisor. Later, for 40 years, he was also the leader of two British fascist organisations.
In the series, he meets with Arthur, Michael, and Tommy in Westminster, where Tommy challenges Mosley’s prior meetings to garner support for his cause, which included Billy Boys commander Jimmy McCavern.
Ada gets wary of Mosley, fearing that he is on the verge of fascism, and her fears are verified when he begins rallying support for The British Union of Fascists during a party.
Things come to a climax when Winston Churchill meets with Tommy and orders him to “do anything possible” to put an end to the revolution, which, as we now know, was the botched murder plot. With Mosley still alive and public support building, he’ll almost certainly have a bullseye on his back again.
Jimmy McCavern is played by Brian Gleeson.
Jimmy McCavern, the commander of the Billy Boys and a member of the Glasgow razor gang, is one of Peaky Blinders’ main adversaries in Season 5.
He’s an exceedingly vicious guy who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty, as seen by his ambush of Aberama Gold in the forest and murder of his son Bonnie only to send a message to Tommy that the Billy Boys are sick of being subjugated to the Peaky Blinders.
Furthermore, he is tied to Mosley, and on the day of the assassination attempt, Aberama attempts to get revenge on Jimmy, who had provided security for Mosley’s event, but is stabbed to death by an unknown person.
Season 6 might witness a final clash between these gangs now that Jimmy has made his opinions about the Peaky Blinders obvious, but it’s complex because Tommy previously partnered with them to smuggle in a supply of pure opium.
