Peaky Blinders is all set to end but with a movie instead of season 6. It’d offer the story much more elegance and a better conclusion than what other seasons have achieved.
The Rise Of Sir Oswald And The Change In Plan
The Murphy-fronted franchise, Peaky Blinders, is all set to echo its conclusion with a film after the release of its season 6. The production of the film is expected to begin in 2023. The decision was announced by the creator, Steven Knight, in 2021. With that said, the production for season 6 of Peaky Blinders has been already wrapped up. This led fans to question why the makers chose to end the franchise with a film instead of a potential season 7.
Centering the head of the crime family, Thomas Shelby, Peaky Blinders has been in the air for the last 5 seasons that cover-ups the timeline between 1919 and 1929. The plot of the story moved ahead from showing the trauma various characters had as a result of WW1 to lay the foundation for WW2. This began with the rise of Sir Oswald Mosley and the concept of fascism in the UK. All of this led towards a larger strategy from the Knight’s end, who announced that he will start working on the writing for Peaky Blinders season 7. But the plans changed.
Steven’s Intention Regarding The Conclusion Of The Franchise
Knight’s vision regarding Peaky Blinders has always been a narrative full of craft and story of the Shelby family between both the World Wars. While Steven Knight previously echoed that he will soon start working on season 7 of Peaky Blinders, he changed his plans as a result of the global pandemic that also affected many other productions around the globe. However, Steven revealed that his intention is to end the franchise with a film and not with a season.
With that being said, while the franchise has already killed many primary characters from the timeline, characters like Thomas Shelby are largely expected to survive as the center of the remaining Peaky Blinders’ plot.
