PEAKY Blinders will be back on BBC One TONIGHT (Sunday, September 8) with the third episode of the fifth series.

Here’s everything you need to know about the programme and its cast including the dapper Cillian Murphy.

When did season five return to BBC1?

The fifth season of Peaky Blinders premiered at 9pm on BBC One on Sunday, August 25.

On July 18, Peaky Blinders held a premiere for its upcoming series at Birmingham Town Hall, with stars such as Helen McCory and Sophie Rundle gracing the red carpet to celebrate the occasion.

Harry Kirton, Finn Cole, Packy Lee and Charlene McKenna were also in attendance while the main man himself, Cillian Murphy, was nowhere in sight.

Tommy Shelby will be heading to Westminster as a member of parliament in season five, so fans shouldn’t wonder whether his absence had anything to do with the chance that he wasn’t going to reprise his role again – that’s definitely false.

In the action-packed promo Tommy is seen grasping the hand of his daughter Ruby as they stand over a grave.

Series four of the BBC One hit aired in December 2017 and the fifth season of the drama was confirmed in early 2019.
