'Peaky Blinders' Creator Reveals New Plot Details About Season Five

'Peaky Blinders' Creator Reveals New Plot Details About Season Five

So we already know that Peaky Blinders is coming back for another two seasons and we know there will be a new director. But nothing is as juicy as what's going down for the Shelby family in the next round.

And we hope you're feeling as lucky as Michael was during that shooting, because we've got some plot details for you right here. Thank us later.

The new season is expected to be back on BBC Two in 2019 and Steven Knight, the show's creator, told Birmingham Mail that filming will begin this autumn and the plot will be set in the 1930s. Keep the info coming...

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 story line.

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

He added: "In my mind it ends [with the] first air raid siren in the Second World War.

"My mom told a story about the air raid siren going off and her mom coming in, pulling the blankets off, and saying, 'Come on, the buggers are here.'"

When asked whether Alfie Solomons is really dead, Knight said 'pass', and even more interestingly (for the old romantics), when he was quizzed about Grace's murder and whether that was real, the creator said: "I am not going to answer."

Maybe that was because she was quite clearly shot in the chest and if she had been shipped off somewhere, chances are she'd be back by now for the sake of their kid. But whatever.

Peaky Blinders Creator Steven Knight Has Finished Writing Season Six

Anyway, let's have a recap. Season four ended on a high for Tommy Shelbs and co. as we saw them get rid of the Changretta family before Tommy had a swift career change when he became the Labour MP for Birmingham South.

But it seems that this new professional pathway won't stop the rest of the family from misbehaving - in fact, it could assist them.

According to Metro Online, Paul Anderson, who plays fan favourite Arthur Shelby, says not to expect the family to suddenly change their ways now they've got an elected official in their midst. We didn't expect anything less.

He said: "Arthur's not gonna be a politician. He's got political ties now, let's put it that way. But you won't see him at no rallies or in Parliament.

Peaky Blinders' Tommy Shelby Named Greatest TV Character Of All Time

published at10 months ago

"What it gives Arthur and his family is more power. Tommy is in a position of power, and he can only get stronger in that position. So we'll all have more cover, we'll have more opportunity, and more protection.

"And by protection I mean by society and the police and so on. We'll be able to get away with things under the guise of, 'we're politicians, we're respectable'.

"But we'll be able to manipulate things more. Arthur will be even more Arthur. So it will be a lot of fun."

Oh, you devils.

The previous season finale saw the the family fake Arthur's death to get one over on gangster Luca Changretta, and don't deny that you didn't buy it. Paul admits he also thought he was a goner and worried that his character was going to get bumped off permanently.

He said: "There's always that sort of doubt and uncertainty over whether they'll kill me off because of who I play and the way he conducts himself.

"There's certainly justification for somebody to take revenge on Arthur, so I'm always thinking maybe they'll kill me this season."

Well, let's hope Arthur is safe along with everyone else, because we can't deal with any Shelby deaths.
