Why is Peaky Blinders season 7 cancelled?

Probably the last we’ll hear from our favorite, “In the bleak mid-winter,” as the mobster gang from Birmingham, England are ready to say goodbye with their sixth and likely final season. Season 6 of Peaky Blinders delivered jaw-dropping shocks to fans as Tommy Shelby’s empire wrapped up its latest send-off.

Fans are blown away after the bloodshed and explosive turn of events that took place in the sixth season. While Season 6 has shown some final answers to some pretty perplexing mysteries since day one, fans are still struggling to wonder if there will be the next season or not. With the dramatic conclusion of the sixth series and rumors about the spin-off, here’s everything you need to know.

Peaky Blinders season 7: will it happen?

With its latest installment released in February 2022, the show left fans wondering if the Peaky gang were planning on returning for the 7th season.

The season finale of the sixth season ended with a bloodshed di conclusion that indicated the abandonment of one of the famous dramas. This season is doing the best of all with Tommy Shelby battling his inner demons and dealing with some really bad losses. Although coming back to the most asked question, will there be a seventh season?

We’re afraid to say it, but we don’t expect our favorite “fooking” gangsters to make noise on the streets of Birmingham. To mention a few reasons, the first relates to the implications the pandemic has caused for filming and producing with masses. Creator Steve Knight in a 2021 interview mentioned that the original intention to end the series with seven seasons but Covid limitations put the production in a tight spot.

He added that instead of bringing the seventh season, the Peaky team will appear on the big screen. Another big reason for the most anticipated show to end is the tragic death of legendary actress Helen McCroy who played the iconic Polly Gray on the show. He added that with the loss of Helen and the pandemic restrictions, it would be a better option to place in a movie.

Are we expecting a Peaky Blinders movie?

For those who are worried, we would like to clear things up and say that the Peaky Blinders will continue.

The series may have come to an end after the glorious 6 seasons, but there will be more Tommy Shelby coming our way.

Thanks to writer and creator Steve Knight who confirmed that the Peaky Blinders will march to the big screen and serve their fans with an ultimate end. The announcement came around January 2021 when rumors swirled in the air about the show ending.

Peaky Blinders: the plot of the movie

While the news is fresh and the plot is still secret. Steve Knight mentioned a few notable details that could be potential plot elements.

He mentioned doing the film featuring World War II. He was positive about giving the film a solid conflict to end the Peaky saga.

He also revealed that the film will feature Polly Gray as she is an important part of the Peaky Blinders.

Peaky Blinders may have drawn the curtains with the wrap up of Season 6 but there’s still hope to see our favorite Shelbys gearing up to land on the big screen!
