'Peaky Blinders' Season Four Arrives On Netflix In Time For Christmas

If you - like so many other people - are looking for something to binge watch instead of talking to your tedious family this Christmas, have we got some news for you.

Your prayers have been answered by the good folks over at Netflix, because Peaky Blinders season four has just 'dropped' - in the parlance of our times - onto the streaming platform as of today.

This is good news because it means that you can now watch all available episodes that have aired on the TV to date and begin to anticipate the coming season with earnest.

If you can't remember where we got up to at the end of season three, and you perhaps didn't catch season four when it aired on telly earlier this year, let me set the scene for you.

Tommy Shelby is in big trouble with his family. In the season finale of season three he dobbed them all into the police and denied them their share of a massive amount of loot. Needless to say, that didn't go down well.

Even worse news for Arthur, Polly, John, and Michael, they all begin the season inside prison, with a noose around their necks, about to hang for their various crimes.

I'll leave the rest of it up to you guys to watch it, but rest assured that you can expect the usual high-paced, high-octane, early 20th century drama.

That comes alongside some stellar performances from the all-star cast. Alongside Peaky Blinders regulars such as Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy, Game of Thrones' Aidan Gillen arrives as the conniving hitman/boxing enthusiast Aberama Gold, alongside some Hollywood royalty in Academy Award winner Adrien Brody.

Brody arrives portraying New York's Luca Changretta, an angry gangster utterly bent on revenge and the destruction of the Shelby Family, with particular reference to Tommy Shelby himself.

Seriously, if you've never watched the series before, it's worth catching up from the start of it just to see Brody chew the scenery up.

As for season five, we're expecting to hear more about that in the new year. It has been confirmed that it'll be back on screens perhaps as early as Spring 2019. They started filming in Birmingham way back in September, so it might not be too long before the Shelby Company Ltd opens for trading once more.

Oh, and in case you've got series link set up for the show, remember that it will be on BBC One next time around instead of BBC Two.

You've got enough time to change that, and watch the whole thing from start to finish by then.
