Peaky Blinders is bringing back Esme Shelby for season 6.
Peaky Blinders is reintroducing a major character who was last seen in the fourth season.
Filming for season 6 of the BBC One show began earlier in the year, and new on-set photos have since revealed that Esme Shelby star Aimee-Ffion Edwards would make a return for the penultimate season.

Cillian Murphy, who plays Tommy Shelby, was recently spotted shooting scenes with Edwards.
Esme is seen in the photos chasing her brother-in-law Tommy out of a cemetery after a heated argument. Another photo shows Tommy looking at a grave.
Esme’s surprise appearance follows her departure from the show at the conclusion of the fourth season due to the death of her partner, John Shelby (Joe Cole).
We find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher. We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.
