What will happen in Peaky Blinders season five?
Series four of Peaky Blinders ended with the Shelby’s finally defeating the Changretta’s and Tommy Shelby being elected as an MP, giving the family some political power in Birmingham.
Season five will show the difficulties Tommy has to deal with as an MP, with new enemies coming out of the woodwork conspiring against him, and the Shelbys having to deal with the ramifications of the 1929 financial crash.
Now that Tommy is playing at higher stakes, we get to see how his response to these problems affect not only his family, but the country too.

Will there be Peaky Blinders season six?
Pre-production of season six had already begun, but has currently been halted due to Covid-19.
It had originally been slated for a 2021 release but that has been thrown into chaos amid the spread of coronavirus, forcing filming to be postponed, with no current news on when it will resume.
The show’s creator, Steven Knight has said Peaky Blinders will have seven seasons in its entirety, so viewers will just have to be patient for now.
