Steven Knight Says ‘Peaky Blinders’ Movie ‘Is Going To Happen’
The popular series Peaky Blinders will end after its sixth season. However, the show’s creator, Steven Knight, has revealed that there may be more to the story.
“COVID changed our plans. But I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie. That is what is going to happen,” Knight told Dateline.
While nothing is formal yet, Peak Blinders has extended into many spin-off projects, including tie-in books, clothing lines, a soundtrack, a video game and a proposed ballet and West End musical, that a movie may not be too far off.
While Knight had previously intended to end the series with the seventh season, the pandemic led to the launch of the sixth season being put on hold for almost a year, making a seventh season implausible.
While details on the new season, which began filming on Monday, are still being kept secret, Knight assured fans that he was “planting seeds” in season 5 that will be picked up on.
Premiering in 2013, Peaky Blinders is a Netflix series that follows the Shelby family and their crimes in the aftermath of the First World War.
