Peaky Blinders new series – when and where to watch as Cillian Murphy returns

The final season of Peaky Blinders is only around the corner, bringing the action-packed world of gangster Birmingham to TV screens once again.

Fans of the show are eagerly anticipating the final series, wondering what has happened to the remaining Shelby brothers, but noting the sad absence of Helen McCrory.

McCrory, who played Aunt Polly, passed away from cancer in April 2021 and was one of the show's favourites.

Producers seem to be holding nothing back, with Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood writing music exclusively for the show, while high-class acting talent like Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy and Anya Taylor-Joy are all continuing in their roles.

Modern acting legend Stephen Graham also joins the fold and Peaky Blinders writer Stephen Knight told Digital Spy: "I've always wanted him to be in it. A character was starting to develop in the Liverpool docks. And you just think, well, there can be nobody else for this character."

Emmett J Scanlan, the actor who plays Billy Grade, told Digital Spy season six is "so f**king strong".

So when will series six of the show be out?

The new series will air on Sunday, February 27.

Back into the tradition of just one episode every seven days, the show will aim to keep fans on tenterhooks week after week.

What channel is Peaky Blinders on?

The prime Sunday 9pm slot for Peaky Blinders will see the show on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

The previous series can be watched either on iPlayer or the streaming service Netflix.

What can we expect from the new series of Peaky Blinders?

Spoilers ahead, but we reckon Tommy Shelby hasn't actually shot himself.

The end of series five quite literally ended with a bang as a screaming Tommy held a gun to his head before the screen went dark.

His dwindling mental health as fascist Oswald Mosley gains more power and influence in the UK was the main plot arc for the last series, but other surprises were had with the reintroduction of the supposedly dead Alfie Solomons, played by Tom Hardy.

Alfie once held a huge amount of power in his hand, before it was destroyed by a bullet fired by Tommy.

The boss of the show revealed to Radio Times: "I think it's difficult to explain without giving stuff away, but we might find Alfie in a position not quite as strong as he normally is. And the question is, can he build himself back up?"

Polly's son Michael also has a history of falling out with the Shelbys and won't have taken too kindly to being banished by Tommy in season five.

Polly predicted "There will be a war and one of you will die", when talking to Tommy and Michael. Who it might be remains to be seen.
