Fans are dying to get amongst the Shelby action once again after season four delivered the goods in every way, shape and form.

But it seems like we're still a while away before we see the likes of Cillian Murphy, Paul Anderson and Helen McCrory on our screens again as the cast was spotted filming some scenes in Stockport, England.

The theatre and cinema in the town plaza have been remodelled to look like Birmingham in the 1930s. Who doesn't love getting a look at those old-school cars, ammiright?

Joining the team on set is Mr Sam Claflin, who has previously been in The Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean and Me Before You. The 32-year-old is reported to be playing the role of far right politician Oswald Mosley for the upcoming season.

Everyone looked the part with their three-piece suits and of course Thomas Shelby was seen wearing his signature Peaky cap.

According to its synopsis, we will see the world 'thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929',

It continues: "Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere. When Tommy Shelby MP is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family's future but that of the entire nation."

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail last year, the show's creator Steven Knight dropped some hints about what fans could expect from the new series.

He said: "We are going into the 30s now. There is so much stuff happening, so why not finish the job? The depression and the rise of fascism form part of the storyline.

"It is setting those things up. In the 30s across Europe and Britain there was the rise of fascism."

When it does return to our screen the tense drama will make the jump from BBC Two to BBC One, with the hope that it will increase the audience size.

Director of BBC content Charlotte Moore told Digital Spy: "Peaky Blinders is world class drama at the top of its game and the time has arrived for it to move to the UK's biggest channel.

"Steven Knight's epic storytelling is authentic and utterly compelling and I want to give it the chance to be enjoyed by an even broader audience on BBC One.

"We couldn't have asked for a better response to series four and the impact it had with young audiences. This move will also give BBC Two more creative headroom to experiment with new drama."

So unfortunately no word yet on a release date. Naughty BBC making us wait like this.
