Peaky Blinders may have been off screens since September 2019 but the series is just as popular as ever. Filming recently wrapped on the sixth season of the BBC series, giving fans hope the return of Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) and the rest of the Shelby gang is just around the corner. And now, new comments from Conrad Khan, a new cast member for season six, have suggested the wait is almost over.

Will Peaky Blinders season six air in February?

Peaky Blinders season six has had a long and difficult journey.

Plagued by delays and setbacks during filming, the production recently announced it had wrapped filming, much to the delight of fans. 

Now, all that remains is a release date to be confirmed by the BBC, though so far there has been little word on when season six will drop.

Initially, there were hopes the show would come back this year, but as the summer is nearly over and there have been no updates, 2021 looks increasingly out of the question.

However, fans shouldn’t despair, as the sixth and final season’s release date could have just been announced.

In a recent interview with the Radio Times, star Conrad Khan revealed that season six could be premiering in early 2022.

In an unconfirmed role, Khan will be joining the series as a new cast member for the final season.

Khan explained: “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.”

Post-production can range from anywhere between one month to six or beyond.

This depends on the scale of the production, the budget, team and length of a project.

Based on Khan’s comments and the knowledge season six is the final for the show, a February release date could make sense for the show.

Little is known about the plot of the last season, though Khan won’t be alone as a new cast member, with Code 404 and Save Me star Stephen Graham also stepping foot in Birmingham.

Graham is playing a mysterious character in the series, though the BBC did reveal the first look at his character back in April.

All the usual suspects will be returning for the last season, including Arthur Shelby (Paul Anderson), Finn Shelby (Harry Kirton), and Ada Thorne (Sophie Rundle).

Sadly, on April 16 news broke that Helen McCrory, who played Polly Gray, tragically passed away following a cancer diagnosis.

It isn’t known if the late star filmed any scenes for the last season, with the BBC not commenting on how the character will be involved in the sixth season.

The fifth season ended with Tommy’s assassination attempt of Oswald Mosley (Sam Clafin) dramatically failing.

It looks certain Tommy was betrayed, though for the first time he has no idea who could have done it or why.

Tommy is entering season six on the backfoot and he is up against the unknown, without a plan and no one to trust.

Peaky Blinders seasons 1-5 are available to watch on BBC iPlayer and Netflix.
