Peaky Blinders’ final season is coming to the BBC and people are already wondering what’s coming next. Thankfully, Peaky Blinders’ creator, Steven Knight teased that there might be more coming in the forms of spinoffs.
So, Peaky Blinders Season 6 is going to be the last season of the BBC show, however, it seems as though Steven Knight and co. are planning more Peaky Blinders stuff beyond this final season.
We already knew that a movie was coming, which will serve as the show’s finale.
However, during an interview with Digital Spy, Knight teased that there might be Peaky Blinders spinoffs coming in the future.
Digital Spy asked Knight whether Tommy and Arthur would still be part of that world beyond Season 6, Steven replied:
It’s impossible to say yet. But the film – yes.
A Peaky Blinders spinoff might be in the works
We’re going to make a film – a feature film – which will move the world on, and then once we’ve moved the world on into the Second World, we’ll see where that takes us. It’s now a situation where the world… you know, around the world, the Peaky world, it’s got so much energy, and so much following, and such a huge fanbase, that you think: ‘Well, let’s just carry on.’ So we do.
As for casting for the movie and beyond, Steven Knight has this to say:
There are so many people, so many great actors, that we are already, sort of, in conversation with for the film, and for whatever follows. But I think what we want to do is keep surprising people, and keep breaking new talent. Because it’s all out there, and there is a sort of consistency – what we’re doing is finding really good actors from a working-class sort of background, and telling that story. That’s what we’re trying to do.
