The creator of Peaky Blinders has revealed when we can expect to see the sixth and final season of the show.
Steven Knight revealed during a panel at the BFI London Film Festival he is hoping for a Spring-time release, which will be sometime between March and May next year.
He explained that the finale has been completely shot and editing is nearly complete.
He's also given some more details about the highly-anticipated movie version of the Birmingham gang headed up by Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy).
"And then I am going to write the feature which will be set in and shot in Birmingham," Knight said at the panel, according to Variety.
"And that will probably be the sort of the end of the road for Peaky Blinders as we know it."
Knight said production will begin some time in 2023, meaning it's likely we could see the film on the big screen the following year.
But he also mentioned that there could be 'shows related' to the Peaky Blinders world, aka meaning we could soon see some spinoff series.
There could be some prequels into characters who have been lost during the show (can we get a Alfie Solomon origin story, please?) or there could be shows following individuals who manage to survive beyond season six and the movie.
Knight said he likely wouldn't be a part of these spinoffs (a term that he doesn't like to use, according to Variety) and he would instead 'pass the baton on' to someone who wants to lead those stories.
While it's been two years since we last got a taste of Peaky Blinders, it appears the show's popularity hasn't faded.
highspeedinternet.com wanted to find out exactly which shows have been the most popular this year and the results from their survey reveal that Peaky Blinders is Netflix's 'most watched TV show' for 2021 so far.
That conclusion was reached by analysing the search volume of the top trending Netflix titles in 70 countries.
The hit TV show topped the list of being the top searched title for 24 countries, followed by Stranger Things and Riverdale with 15 and eight countries, respectively.
And on top of that, Thomas Shelby and the lads have also taken over the world in terms of having the most searches globally at 2,280,600.
Peaky Blinders was searched 780,600 more times than the second spot, which went to Cobra Kai at 1,500,000.
Third place went to Stranger Things and fourth was Enola Holmes.
