‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 6: Netflix Release Date


Peaky Blinders season 6 is about to release in the United Kingdom imminently, with the sixth series season having wrapped filming over the summer of 2021. So when will Peaky Blinders season 6 be on Netflix around the globe? 2022 seems to be the answer in most locations but let’s dive into everything we know.

The fantastic British drama continues to be one of Netflix’s best imports. The 1920’s drama is about a gangster family back in Birmingham, England. The series first airs on the BBC, but Netflix stands as the international distributor for the show.

Season 5 landed on Netflix in the US on October 4th, 2019, and is due to release on Netflix in the UK on April 22nd.

Now let’s dive into what we know so far about season 6 of Peaky Blinders and when we can expect season 6 to drop on Netflix.

What will happen in season 6 of Peaky Blinders?

Caution: spoilers below for season 5 of Peaky Blinders.

Season 5, which consisted of another six episodes, sees “the Shelbys grapple with the 1929 stock market crash, Tommy confronts new threats to his power from younger family members and fascist rivals.”

Season 5 left us with a massive cliffhanger after the turbulent events of the season. Tommy ended the season screaming at his dead wife with a gun pointed to his head before cutting to black. Will Tommy end up killing himself? His PTSD and moments that led to this season are taking hold.

We should also find out who ultimately betrayed Tommy, but according to the podcast series, Obsessed with Peaky Blinders, we should already be able to work out who it was. Let us know what you think it is in the comments below.

DigitalSpy put together their extensive list of suspects who may be the traitor.

Beyond that, we should find out more about Peaky Blinder’s expansion into the United States. Beyond that, we’re fast approaching WW2 in the events with Oswald Mosley becoming more prominent.

Where is Peaky Blinders season 6 in production?

Filming was initially scheduled for season 6 of Peaky Blinders from February 2020, according to ProductionWeekly. However, it was understood that filming would occur once again in Liverpool and Scotland.

Steven Knight continues his writing and showrunning duties for season 6, and for the first time, season 6 is set to see a director return with Anthony Byrne rejoining the project.

Fast forward a few months, the COVID-19 pandemic hit the film and TV industry very hard, and Netflix’s and BBC’s hit series Peaky Blinders was no exception. Production was gearing up to start shooting when everything came to a halt.

We were so close to the start of filming Season 6. Months of hard work by our talented, dedicated, and hardworking crew“, wrote Season 5 and Season 6 director Anthony Byrne in an Instagram post.

Sets were built, costumes were made. Cameras and lenses tested. Locations were booked. All the prep was done. It’s a real shame not to be able to make it for you at this time“, he continued. The fate of the highly-anticipated 1920s crime drama was up in the air until now.

Production resumed from November 2020, taking place across various locations in the UK, most notably Liverpool and Scotland. Filming lasted for several months until it was confirmed in an Instagram post by Anthony Byrne that filming had officially wrapped on season 6.

Editing finished on season 6 in November 2021.

When will Peaky Blinders season 6 be on Netflix?

Once again, we’re not expecting to see season 6 of Peaky Blinders until shortly after it concludes airing on the BBC in the United Kingdom. This is because season 5 came to Netflix on October 4th, 2019, roughly three weeks after its UK air date.

According to BBC promotions, the release date for Peaky Blinders sixth season is currently slated for early 2022. Unfortunately, that means we’re expecting Netflix internationally to carry the show between Spring and Summer 2022.

Netflix in the United Kingdom will eventually get season 6 of Peaky Blinders, too, but at this point, it doesn’t look like that’ll be the case until 2023 as Netflix has to wait around a year to get the license from the BBC.

Who will star in Peaky Blinders season 6?

All the prominent cast members will be back, including Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle, and Finn Cole.

Joining the cast for season 6 is Stephen Graham.

Whether the deceased cast members, including Annabelle Wallis, who plays Grace Shelby, will return in some form is yet to be seen.

There has been speculation regarding some rumored castings for season 6, including Julia Roberts. However, according to DigitialSpy, other well-known celebrities have also wanted to get involved, including Samuel L. Jackson, Snoop Dogg, and A$AP Rocky.

Will there be a season 7 of Peaky Blinders?

In 2018, Steven Knight told the Birmingham Press Hub that “we will probably do seven,” referring to season 7. However, it’s since been announced that season 6 of Peaky Blinders will be the final season.

That’s all we have for now about season 6 of Peaky Blinders on Netflix. We’ll keep this post updated as time goes on about more information and, of course, the all-important release date.
