After the stirring finale of the sixth season, anticipation has never been higher for what’ll be the epic conclusion to the tale of 19th-century Birmingham’s most infamous gang. Peaky Blinders: Season 7 is supposedly what fans are expecting, but for those who still aren’t aware, the series isn’t getting renewed.
Instead of a Peaky Blinders: Season 7, creator Steven Knight confirmed years ago that a feature film would close the book on the nefarious Shelby family. Production on the movie is set to begin sometime in 2023 with a possible release soon after. The series may have ended, but luckily, we can’t say the same for the story, so here’s everything about what’s happening next.
When Is Peaky Blinders: Season 7 Coming Out?
There is no release date for Peaky Blinders: Season 7 as the series has officially finished its run. On the bright side, a sequel film is in the works that will directly continue the story. It’s tentatively scheduled to be released in Spring 2024, but depending on when production wraps, a delay may transpire.
The main reason why a movie was given preference over a new season was due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally, the way things were scheduled, Peaky Blinders: Season 7 was meant to have been filmed already, but because the pandemic happened, creator Steven Knight said during his interview with BBC News that a movie sounded more practical since they had lost about one year of production time.
Either way, as long as Thomas Shelby is given a spectacular send-off, despite that not being in Peaky Blinders: Season 7, fans shouldn’t mind. Thomas realizing in the finale of the series that his diagnosis of tuberculoma was all planted by his enemies and that he almost put an end to his life to save himself the suffering, made for a bittersweet ending. Instead of being enraged, he seemed more focused, and now with Thomas’ mind at ease, seeing his revenge play out on the cinema screen will be insanely satisfying.
Who Is In The Cast for Peaky Blinders: Season 7?
Since there will be no Peaky Blinders: Season 7, no one among the cast is returning for it. But when it comes to the movie, then that’s a completely different story. Although the full cast for the feature film hasn’t been revealed, Steven Knight has confirmed that Cillian Murphy will reprise his role as the series lead Thomas Shelby, whereas Paul Anderson will be coming back as Tommy’s brother Arthur Shelby.
Other cast members might not have been confirmed but it’s safe to assume that Anya Taylor-Joy should be back as Gina Gray, Natasha O’Keeffe as Lizzie, and Sophie Rundle as Ada Thorne. Considering that the series is finally heading to the big screen, Tom Hardy portraying Alfie Solomons one more time would be icing on the cake.
Another thing of note is that the series’ universe might extend beyond just the show. Somewhere down the line, we may just see a Peaky Blinders: Season 7 with a new protagonist, or we might get a spin-off sequel series where familiar faces appear.
Oh, and let’s not forget the antagonist Sir Oswald Mosley, played by Sam Claflin, returning for the movie as well since Tommy has to put a bullet in someone, and for anybody still lost in 2020, the rumors about Rowan Atkinson playing Adolf Hitler were false, so he isn’t among the new faces — unless the showrunners are about to pull the prank of the century.
