While the end of this fan-favorite series is now imminent, creator Steven Knight is assuring fans that the show will go out in cinematic and emphatic style. He also revealed the series finale will have 81 minutes of screen time, technically making it a short film!

“It feels very, very different to the rest of the season,” he stated while talking to RadioTimes.com. “It feels very, very different to anything we’ve done before. It’s very epic in scope. It feels like a film—it’s a kind of dry run for the feature film.”

Series director Anthony Byrne also made the confirmation to RadioTimes.com that the much-anticipated finale will be a splendid 81 minutes long episode.

“It’s such a Peaky thing to do for the last hurrah. It’s the 10:22 news for one night only,” he stated. He also added that the fans can expect something new from its ultimate TV outing.

The Peaky Blinders final season is on its way, and the fans who are already feeling sad about it ending so soon can rest assured as the drama will be ending out in an extended style.

The feature film of the series is also in question and is something that Steven has been giving hints for months.

He said while confirming about the film in the making, “We’re going to make a film—a feature film—which will move the world on, and then once we’ve moved the world on into the Second World War, we’ll see where that takes us.”

Bring on the cinematic masterclass of Peaky Blinders through its own Cinematic Universe!

The series finale is already making up the grounds for the Peaky Blinders movie which will be coming soon, as the creator, Steven Knight has already stated that several characters that they are introduced new in the series and fans will see in this season’s final will also be “part of what happens in [the] film.”

While talking about that he said, “the film, I know exactly what it’s about. And I know what two stories it’s going to tell. How the story will unfold, I don’t know. What will happen after that, I want that to depend on the film. For all we know somebody is going to pop out – I think I know who it’s going to be.”

Byrne also explained in detail when he was speaking to RadioTimes.com why some of the fans might feel a “slightly different tone” into these final episodes run of Peaky and it may feel different to them. He also said that the main goal of season 6 is to truly explore the character Tommy Shelby who is played by Cillian Murphy.

“Season 6 is a character piece about the darkness of Tommy Shelby’s soul and it’s how far down is he going to have to go before he can get out. And will there be any left of him?” he stated. “That’s what it is for me. And audiences who love the character will go with it because they’re on a journey with this guy, with Tommy Shelby.”

He further added into his statement that there is “always going to be an element of people who want just the same stuff,” but also explained how important it was for the creative team of the show that the series needs to “change” and “evolve.”

Peaky Blinders season 6 is currently airing on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Sundays at 9 p.m primetime. For Netflix subscribers, they can watch the final antics of the remaining Peaky Blinders gang when the final batch of episodes, including a mini film-sized season finale, will premiere on Netflix in June 2022.
