PEAKY Blinders won’t be vanishing from screens anytime soon, the show’s creator has confirmed.

Steven Knight has revealed that he still has two more installations of the show up his sleeve, but seasons 7 and 8 will by no means be the franchise’s last.

Once the main series has wrapped, he will turn his attention to spin-off series and perhaps even a film.

“I’m writing series six at the moment,” he told PA.

“That’s almost done. Then I’m going to do series seven, then I’m looking at spin-offs, maybe a movie,” he went on.

“It’s up to us. It’s up to the people involved.”

However, he said that any side projects were unlikely to be prequels, due to narrative constraints.

“You can’t kill a character who can show up in the series,” he continued.

“The problem with prequels is you’re limiting yourself as to where it can go.”

Knight previously revealed that he wants the Peaky Blinders timeline to end at the advent of the Second World War.


Specifically, he said he wanted the final shot to feature the first air raid siren in Birmingham in 1939.

Fans of the show were left gobsmacked at the weekend that Linda survived her latest altercation, while Ben Younger was killed.

What’s more, four burning questions emerged from season 5, episode 5 – look no further for our full episode synopsis.

Peaky Blinders continues Sundays at 9pm on BBC One.
