“Peaky Blinders” has officially completed filming on season 6 in Arley Hall & Gardens in the U.K. The filming on the final season started back in January 2021 after it was postponed in March 2020 due to the COVID pandemic.
Hit BBC drama and BAFTA-winning period gangster saga “Peaky Blinders” will end after its upcoming sixth season. Earlier, creator and writer Steven Knight have promised the story will “continue in another form.”
Season 6 completed filming on May 28, in Arley Hall & Gardens located in the U.K. The announcement came from series director Anthony Byrne through Instagram. Also, the official account of Peaky Blinders said, "It’s a wrap! Huge thanks to the cast and crew of #PeakyBlinders season 6. You’ve given this one everything. And it's going to be epic."

The series follows the story of Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) and his notorious family’s rise to power against the backdrop of the working class, post-WWI Birmingham. Season 5 drew record numbers for BBC One. Still, after a long production delay due to Covid, there is solace that the team is back.
Created by Steven Knight and starring Cillian Murphy, the beloved drama first aired on BBC Two eight years ago before making the move to BBC One in 2019 with audiences of over 7M. Outside the UK, it is available on Netflix. Helen McCrory who was playing “Aunt Pol” in the series, died last month at the age of 52.
While announcing the end of Peaky Blinders, Knight has said, “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher. We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”
The season 6 ending is a surprise given Knight previously told Entertainment Weekly in 2019 that “Peaky Blinders” would live to see season 7. However, a year’s delay in production due to the pandemic is likely to have accelerated plans to wrap with season 6, which will likely air in late 2021 or possibly even early 2022 depending on how quickly post-production can complete.
The sixth season is written by Knight, while Anthony Byrne returns as a director having directed season five to great acclaim, and Nick Goding will produce. Executive producers are Caryn Mandabach, Steven Knight, Jamie Glazebrook, David Mason, Anthony Byrne, and Cillian Murphy. Peaky Blinders is available to stream on Netflix worldwide.
