Paul Anderson teases season 6 is “coming soon.”
Peaky Blinders star Paul Anderson posted promising news on the crime drama’s highly awaited return.
Filming for season 6 was postponed earlier in the year while show producer Anthony Byrne later indicated we could be waiting till late 2021 or early 2022 to watch any new episodes.
Anderson has now implied the wait for the sixth season is not going to be all that prolonged after all.
The star, who portrays Arthur Shelby Jr. in the BBC show, went to Instagram to share a portrait of his character along with the caption:
Season 6 #comingfknsoon 🖤thanking you all for the wait,it will will be worth it 💯🙏🐼
The sixth iteration of the program was initially expected to start shooting in March, with Byrne later confirming they were “so close” to the start of filming the new season before production was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sets were built, costumes were made. Cameras and lenses tested. Locations were booked. All the prep was done. It’s a real shame not to be able to make it for you [right now].
Thankfully, the BBC stated in July the show would shortly start production.
At the conclusion of season five’s cliffhanger – which saw Cillian Murphy‘s Tommy Shelby place a pistol to his head and ready to pull the trigger as he wrestled with his emotional anguish – it’s safe to suggest viewers are eager to see more of this brilliant series.
And, fortunately, Billy Grade star Emmett J Scanlan reassured fans season 6 “won’t disappoint.”
We won at the NTAs this year, just before lockdown, and myself and [show creator] Steven [Knight] spoke about what’s to come very briefly. I’ve read all the scripts since then, which of course are all subject to change. But they’re so f**king strong. It won’t disappoint, I promise you. [Showrunner] Steven [Knight] is a master.
Needless to add, fans can’t wait for Peaky Blinders season 6.
