All Peaky Blinders fans unite! Seems like we’re going to enjoy the adventures and misadventures of the Birmingham Peaky Blinders for not one, nor two, but three more seasons.
While the creator of the show, Steven Knight, has described the fifth season as the ‘best yet’, he has also confirmed two more seasons of our favorite Birmingham crime drama. The confirmation comes after season five filming has wrapped up! Knight spoke to TalkSport, admitting series 5 ‘fell together beautifully’, claiming audiences will be ‘on the edge of their seats’. He said:
I did some research because the new series starts in 1929. In that era, some of the most notorious gangs were in Glasgow. This (season) is about a particular gang called The Billy Boys who become an issue for our friends in Birmingham.
Buuuut! He confirmed ‘we will almost certainly do seven seasons’.

In an interview of Slate, Knight has revealed his writing process, also admitting how the show is personal to him. He said:
Peaky is a very personal thing for me because it’s based on stories that I was told as a kid by my parents.

He admits how he tried to have other writers involved at the beginning, but ‘it just didn’t work’. He said:
There’s no writers room, or any other writer involved. I write everything from beginning to end. Maybe it’s just me not being able to let go of something, especially with Peaky.
Well, you’re doing a great job Knight! We’ve been (im)patiently waiting for season 5! And now we’re even more thrilled to know it will proceed for two more seasons!
