Peaky Blinders Season Five Will Start With Two Episodes Over Two Nights

Peaky Blinders Season Five Will Start With Two Episodes Over Two Nights

Good news people, it seems Peaky Blinders episodes are like buses.

After what has felt like an eternity of waiting for season five, the BBC has revealed that the first two episodes will air on consecutive days.

The first episode of season five, 'Black Tuesday', will be broadcast on Sunday 25 August on BBC One at 9pm, and the following episode, 'Black Cats', will be broadcast the next day at 9.30pm on the same channel.

The Beeb has also released a brief synopsis of both episodes, SO LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE THE FOGGIEST CLUE ABOUT WHAT TO EXPECT.

'Black Tuesday' is summarised as follows: "The Shelby family have dispersed: Michael is living at Shelby Company headquarters in Detroit, while Aunt Polly is holed up with a pilot in Monte Carlo. But the family are quickly brought back together when news of the Wall Street Crash hits and its implications for the family business become clear.

"Meanwhile, Tommy's political career is going from strength to strength; he gives a rousing speech in the House of Commons. It's not long, however, before ghosts from Tommy's past threaten to undermine his position."

How very intriguing. By the sounds of it though, 'Black Cats' might be a little gorier.

The synopsis reads: "Tommy is at Arrow House when he receives a call from a mysterious new ally with potentially devastating information. At Westminster, in a dimly lit bar, he, Ada and Mosley meet to discuss business.

"Meanwhile, a rival gang, keen to send a message to Tommy, use brutal means to do so. At the Garrison pub, Arthur and Finn reveal their plans to expand the Peaky business empire. Later, a birthday celebration is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of someone close to Tommy with a message about a dangerous new enemy."

Beyond this, it is not yet clear what exactly we can expect from the subsequent four episodes, though the safe money suggests they will each be called 'Black Something Or Other'. However, Cillian Murphy (aka the main man Tommy Shelby) told LADbible far right figure Oswald Mosley, played by Sam Clafin, poses his character a 'whole other level' of threat in the upcoming series.

He said: "Tommy has to employ a whole new set of tools to battle with an ideology, as opposed to battling with a physical threat.

"The mafia last year was a pretty conventional threat, albeit a dangerous one, whereas this is a whole other level. If we're to go into it I think what Tommy sees is he's like, 'Oh f***'. He's predicting another a world conflict. He sees what this man's values are and what that could lead to."
