The 41-year-old star was spotted in Hampshire making a quick stop before popping back in to his £80,000 Audi.
His appearance seemed to make an impression on his fans as many of them decided to jump to the conclusion Hardy had grown out his beard to reprise his role as Alfie Solomons in the hit series Peaky Blinders.
Tom Hardy spotted with a very Alfie Solomons beard but filming has finished & he's been off with the new baby so I'm confused :neutral_face: I so wanted him to return to S5 Peakies. pic.twitter.com/0JljpxL4pl- angel wings (@gem1983gemma) February 1, 2019
Back in September it was confirmed that the fifth season of the show had started filming and fans are expected to go in to it with a lot of questions - one of which: Is Alfie Solomons (Tom Hardy) really dead?
Fans are led to believe they saw the last of Alfie when he was shot for betraying Tommy and his co-star, Paul Anderson, said the Venom star didn't want to leave.
Anderson, who plays Peaky Blinders general Arthur Shelby, was recently interviewed by Digital Spy, and said there was some debate about whether or not to go through with killing Solomons off.
He told the publication: "I didn't know that was coming. We were unsure... there was a whole thing about whether or not Alfie would live or die, or get shot or not. It was up for debate and discussion. I know that Tom didn't want to go. So there was this whole thing."
But, so far, there isn't any confirmation that Hardy will make a return to the show.
What we do know is fans won't have to wait long until the show makes a return and the creator says its the 'best season yet'.
Speaking in an interview with TalkSport, creator Steven Knight didn't let too much slip but was full of praise for his cast.
He said: "We just finished shooting a week and a half ago. Series five is done. I can honestly say that it's the best yet. It's really good. It's fantastic and it all fell together beautifully. Great performances and I think audiences are going to be on the edge of their seats."
