If you have not yet finished season four, be warned the article below may contain spoilers for the first four seasons. The BBC has just released the first trailer for season 5 of Peaky Blinders. Unfortunately, the date when the new season starts is not yet known.
It has been a while since season 4 ended, that was in December 2017. And in the four previous seasons we have seen the Shelby family develop into a formidable criminal family that is interwoven everywhere with the upper world. That even went so “well” that last season ended with Tommy Shelby entering the political arena. In addition, in the new season we will have to deal with the impact of the financial crash in 1929.
Storylines coming season
The trailer and several interviews show that the new season has several exciting storylines. First of all there is of course the new role of Tommy Shelby as a politician. He is going to expand his power, but for what purpose and what misery does he gain? The Peaky Blinders also suffer from the impact of the financial crash in 1929.
According to creator and creator of the series, Steven Knight, this is the essence of the new season: “The story of Peaky Blinders and of the Shelby family is interwoven with the political landscape of Great Britain and Europe at the end from the 20s and 30s of the last century. Tommy Shelby is confronted with the darkest power he has ever seen. In addition, the Blinders have to deal with a new gang called The Billy Boys from Glasgow. ”
