Peaky Blinders Creator Steven Knight Hints At Potential Spin-Offs

The Peaky Blinders creator and writer Steven Knight has hinted about the potential for spin-offs after the show comes to an end.

The 61-year-old explained there are possibilities to delve into 'other bits of the story', and he even knows how he's going to end the fan favourite series.

Speaking to RadioTimes, Knight said: "I know how it's going to end, this particular incarnation of the family story, I know that it's going to end at the beginning of the Second World War. But after that I think that the momentum is such that maybe we will continue with other bits of the story."

Last week Peaky Blinders director Anthony Byrne confirmed that series six of the popular BBC drama is currently in pre-production.

Byrne was a director on season five, but as he's back on board for the next instalment, he becomes the first to return for a second series.

Touching on the upcoming season, Steven Knight said 'trouble, trouble and more trouble' is on the horizon for the Shelbys.

He explained: "I've always intended at the very, very end there will be redemption, there will be resolution and there will be a kind of happiness, but along the way there will be trouble."

When Knight finished writing this most recent season he told the BBC: "I've just finished writing series six and it's the best yet, but we always say that."

Speaking to LADbible at the first Peaky Blinders Festival in Birmingham, Knight said: "I would [consider doing a film]. The end scene is the end of this as a television series the way it is now, but it's certainly not ruling out spin offs or a movie.

"You know there's a Peaky Blinders ballet that is being performed today and it's brilliant, it's mind-blowing. So I think there's something about Peaky where it's a world, lots of people have different interpretations of that world, so I'm all for keeping the spirit going."
