The trailer for season 5 of Peaky Blinders is here and it looks great.

You couldn’t have predicted that something set in the very grim and grey world of 1920s Birmingham would have taken the world by storm, but then I suppose nothing expected can never becomes a hit in such a way.

We’ve all waited a long time to see Tommy Shelby back, played by the indomitable Cillian Murphy and now here he is, with his gruff midlands accent stealing the hearts of our girlfriends right in front of our very eyes…


The show’s creator, Steven Knight, said that the upcoming episodes are “on another level” and “fantastic” – which of course, you’d expect him to say – as well as spilling the beans on what will happen to Tommy when all is said and done.


I want to take him on that journey from the person we saw [in series one], to the person he will become in 1939.


[Series seven] will tell a different story, where Tommy Shelby – who begins as this nihilistic, looking-out only for his family person – will be redeemed, and he will become good.”

With all of that said, it’s hardly like he’s going to say “season five’s good, but it’s not quite season two… maybe just watch that again instead?”

Word is that season five will be with us come October. We’ll keep you updated…
