There are many reasons for that Peaky Blinders has earned a well-deserved place among the best TV series of the last decade. Created and written by Steven Knight, this British crime drama series tells the story of the Peaky Blinders crime gang, known for their bladed berets and fearsome demeanor, and their exploits in Birmingham after the First World War. This gang is not entirely fictional since it is in fact inspired by a Birmingham urban youth gang of the same name. Perhaps part of its success is due to its superb cast, led by Cillian Murphy in what is probably his best role to date, along with Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle, Joe Cole, Tom Hardy and many others who joined the ranks have had cast since its premiere in 2013.
During its six seasons Peaky Blinders was able to maintain a very high quality, delivering better and better episodes with more and more intriguing endings. His unique direction, flawless atmosphere, cinematography, script and costumes were the perfect combination to make the show a hit. After season six, which would become the series finale, Knight announced that they would soon begin work on a film concluding the story of Tommy Shelby and his gang. In addition, there are still some fan-requested spin-offs that will be discussed. The plot of Peaky Blinders Film has not yet been announced, nor the date of the premiere. In fact, they haven’t started working on it yet. However, we know that all the main players will participate and contribute to the completion of each of their stories. While we await more information on this film, let’s review some of the things we hope to see in this sequel.
8th A new Tommy
Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) has evolved in very complicated ways over the seasons. The sixth season of Peaky Blinders In particular, the apparent diagnosis of an incurable illness, which prompted him to put his affairs in order to leave his family a good future, was a turning point in his story. Audiences have already seen several sides of him, from his kind moments to his spite and coldness when dealing with his enemies. However, at the end of last season, Tommy showed a new side as for the first time he recognized himself as the only one who could defeat him. Then, after witnessing the burning caravan in which he intended to end his life, he rode a white horse to a new beginning that we hope will surely be explored in the future Peaky Blinder Movie.
7 Gina’s revenge
In the sixth season finale of Peaky Blinders, Polly’s prophecy came true and the war between Tommy and Michael Gray (Finn Cole) finally ended in the latter’s death, even after months of planning his revenge against the leader of the Peaky Blinders. However, this war is far from over, as we can imagine that when Gina receives the news that her husband was killed by Shelby, she will take it upon herself to seek revenge. Anya Taylor-Joy’s character has been in the spotlight for the past season with her vengeful personality, and while her true feelings for her late husband aren’t clear, it’s certain that she will take his death very personally.
6 Oswald Mosley and Diana Mitford’s future in politics
In season five of Peaky Blindersthe audience was introduced to Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin), the main antagonist of the season. Then, with Mosley already gaining some prominence on the show, Diana Mitford (Amber Anderson), his lover — and later second wife — was introduced. After the events of last season and considering we already know what the situation is like in England during the fascist advance as outlined by Town & Country it will be fascinating to know the future of these characters in this particular scenario as well her relationship with Ada (Sophie Rundle), who may inherit her brother’s political position. Considering that Mosley was the mastermind responsible for the doctor’s trick on Tommy, leading him to believe he was about to die, the reunion of these two characters was in the Peaky Blinders Film will certainly be quite tense.
5 Arthur’s comeback
Arthur (Paul Anderson) himself changed significantly over the course of the show, in part due to his drug and alcohol abuse, resulting in his erratic and extremely aggressive behavior. So much so that many fans suspected his tragic end would come in the final season. But unlike the audience expected, Arthur began to recover after hitting rock bottom thanks to the help of Tommy and Linda (Kate Phillips), who once again came to his rescue despite everything that had happened between the two. Because of this, and the fact that he’ll likely get word that Tommy isn’t ill at all, it’s expected that he’ll either recover and return to the group stronger than ever, or he’ll recover and finally go his own way way in the Peaky Blinders Movie.
4 IRA against Arthur and the Peaky Blinders
Polly Gray (played by the late Helen McCrory) was a major player in the Shelby siblings’ family and business life, acting as the family matriarch and taking over leadership of the Peaky Blinders when Tommy and his brothers were in World War I. After her nephews attempted to kill Mosley, the IRA decided to take action by murdering her and sending her body to Tommy’s home. The Peaky Blinders’ revenge finally came through Arthur, who along with some of his allies, concluded Season 6 by murdering Laura McKee (Charlene McKenna) and other party members in cold blood on Polly’s behalf. This conflict foreshadows a potential war between the IRA and the gang that will hopefully unfold in the US Peaky Blinders Movie.
3 Ada: A leader is born?
This sixth season of Peaky Blinders finally, Ada Thorne, the only sister in the Shelby family, gave the lead she deserved. Throughout the show, this young woman was left behind, practically overshadowed by her brothers, but it seems that in the Peaky Blinders movie, Ada will finally play a key role in the family business, as seen in the last season, where she had to make some decisions due to her brothers’ problems. Considering the grief Tommy is going through over the death of his daughter and Arthur’s process of recovery, the fate of the family will practically rest in Ada’s hands. Maybe the Peaky Blinders The film will also show the beginning of Ada’s political career as Tommy assured her in the season finale that if she devoted herself to it she would have a very successful path in politics.
2 Finn the Traitor: A Future Away from the Gang
Though Finn Shelby (Harry Kirton) has appeared on every season of the show, it wasn’t until after John’s death in season four that he took his first steps into the family business. However, it soon became apparent that his intentions were not so faithful to the Shelbys as he was responsible for foiling Tommy’s plan to assassinate Oswald Mosley. From that moment on, the leader of the Peaky Blinders grew suspicious of him, and by the end of season six, those concerns were confirmed thanks to the trap set by Duke, which ended with the killing of Billy (Emmett J. Scanlan) and Finn from the family thrown. It will be very interesting to find out whether or not the younger Shelby brother will really be able to stand on his own two feet and carry out the revenge he has sworn on Duke.
1 Duke and Charles: Two sides of the same coin
During Season 6 and after Ruth Shelby’s death, Tommy discovered he had an illegitimate son named Duke (Conrad Khan), so he didn’t hesitate to bring him into the family. This young man, initially reluctant to join the gang, was already fully integrated by the end of the season and took on a very important role that placed him as a possible heir and successor to Tommy. With that in mind, the scene where Tommy whispered something in his ear before he set off may be more important than it seems, as he may have given him instructions on how to run the gang in his absence. Meanwhile, given the apparent uneasiness of Tommy’s other son Charles, the show set the stage for a possible upcoming confrontation between the heirs. While Thomas’ original idea was for Charles to handle the legal affairs and Duke to operate from the shadows, his sons may not be entirely on board with that command, so watch how they deal with it Peaky Blinders Film will certainly be very interesting.
