The clip shows Tommy Shelby approaching an extremely dapper looking scarecrow in the middle of a boggy field, donning quintessential Peaky Blinders clobber.
Tommy finds a note on the scarecrow which reads: "Look down on earth and see the seeds you have sown."
Reluctant to disobey the ominous effigy, Tommy looks down at the muddy ground beneath him and spots a landmine nearby. Understandably keen not to activate it, Tommy carefully treads away from the scarecrow and the landmine, only to discover another sitting in his path.
Tommy squats down beside it and raises a fist above his head, before retracting it as a voice can be heard calling out: "Dad! There's a phone call for ya!"
We are also given a brief glimpse of Charlie - who has of course grown - darting through a gate, presumably towards the landmine strewn field.
So, could the clip foreshadow a particularly explosive tragedy? Well, if previous seasons are anything to go by, Tommy will probably instantaneously form some ingenious plot to avert disaster.
Either way, it looks like the new season is going to be as gripping as ever.
Speaking to LADbible, Cillian Murphy - aka Tommy Shelby - offered an insight into what we can expect from the new season and his character's conflict with far-right figure, Oswald Mosley.
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."
