The month of February is under new management… by order of the Peaky Blinders.
After patiently waiting (and making countless theories) about the final season of Peaky Blinders, the BBC series is finally returning to our screens this February.
In an interview with RadioTimes.com, Conrad Khan, one of the new additions to the cast, has revealed that the series is right around the corner,
That comes out, from what I last heard – I mean, these things change so quickly – I think that will come out next February, the beginning of next year. There was so much footage, so many episodes, that it does take a while to edit – six months or something.Conrad Khan
The exact date still remains unknown. However, Khan’s comment is in line with what we already know. The official trailer for the series that dropped on New Year’s Day also revealed it would premiere in “early 2022.”
Filming on series six began about a year ago. Since then, there have been a few delays due to the pandemic, but fans are more than ready to watch Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby walk in slow-mo to Red Right Hand once again.
Speaking of the series’ theme song – Murphy recently talked to Rolling Stone about how the soundtrack gives it a unique vibe. The actor added that the upcoming season has a different atmosphere and will be very “gothic.”
I think it’s going to be very intense. The word we keep using is ‘gothic.’ Yeah, it’s going to be heavy!Cillian Murphy
Murphy mentioned that he always tried to find artists who have the similar Peaky Blinders’ “outlaw quality” and revealed that Anna Calvi is involved for this season as well.
