Peaky Blinders fans excited after creator posts 'watch this space' warning on 10 year anniversary
| Last updated
Fans of Peaky Blinders will be feeling pretty good after some words of encouragement from series creator, Steven Knight, on the 10 year anniversary of the show's first episode airing.
Although it looks like the show wrapped up after six triumphant and dramatic seasons, there is definitely an opening for a little bit more story to place the delectable cherry atop the already delicious cake that is Peaky Blinders.
10 years ago today (12 September) we tuned into BBC Two and got our first taste of what the show was going to be like, with audiences being introduced to Birmingham gangster Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) at the start of a long and dramatic journey.
It's taken plenty of twists and turns over the years, with Tommy facing off against all sorts of nefarious villains, including real-life British fascist Sir Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin).
Last we left off, Tommy had resigned himself to death after a terminal diagnosis - only to discover that the whole thing was a lie cooked up by Mosley - which spurred him to get up on a horse and ride into his new lease of life.
At the moment all the buzz is that they're going to wrap Peaky Blinders up with a movie, which will show us what happens to Tommy now he knows he's not terminally ill.
While the series looks like it wrapped up last year, there have been plenty of hopes that Tommy Shelby would come back for a feature length finale.
Cillian Murphy recently said he'd 'definitely have the conversation' about returning to the role 'if there's a movie there, and if there's more story to tell'.
The Peaky Blinders star said he thought the TV show ended 'really, really well', but he would 'love' to come back and do a film if Knight could come up with a good story for it.
Murphy, who is winning plenty of plaudits for his leading role in blockbuster movie Oppenheimer, has said more than once that he'd want to come back if he liked the script.
Fans eagerly hoping something would happen in that direction will be overjoyed at the recent comments from the Peaky Blinders creator.
"It hardly seems believable that it's 10 years since Tommy Shelby first rode that black horse through the streets of Birmingham," he said of the show's anniversary.
"The phenomenal global success of the show is down to the brilliance and hard work of the loyal team that makes it happen. 10 years on and the story is not yet over. Watch this space."
It's that last part that really has Peaky Blinders fans excited, if the story isn't over that means we're getting another delightful dollop of content to wrap things up, and if the show's creator says there's still more story to come then that's about as clear a signal as you can get that something is in the works.
Fans have been overjoyed at the idea of more Peaky Blinders, saying they were 'so excited' to see what was going to happen next.
One said they 'can't wait for the movie', while a second said 'it would be amazing' for Tommy Shelby to return.
A third slightly more excited fan wrote 'THE STORY IS NOT YET OVER STEVEN MY BEST FRIEND I LOVE YOU', so it's safe to say Peaky Blinders fans are feeling rather jolly right now.
