Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight announced last January that the upcoming sixth season of the British period crime drama will be its last. He, however, noted that “while the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”

Back in 2018, when Peaky Blinders had already aired four seasons, Knight told the press that it will take three more seasons to end the series. While it’s unclear why the show is ending slightly earlier than fans expected, Knight’s jam-packed schedule might have something to do with it. The Oscar-winning writer is currently juggling his time between Peaky Blinders and a number of other projects, including season 2 of his Apple TV+ drama See, a Princess Diana movie starring Kristen Stewart, a Jake Gyllenhaal and Benedict Cumberbatch thriller titled Rio, and a series called SAS: Rogue Heroes.

Starring an ensemble cast led by Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Joe Cole and Paul Anderson, Peaky Blinders is a gangster family epic set in 1900s England, centering on a gang who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps, and their fierce boss Tommy Shelby.
