It's official, Peaky Blinders will end after the seventh season. 

The BAFTA TV Awards took place last night, and creator of Peaky Blinders Steven Knight confirmed the news. 

Speaking to Digital Spy, Steven revealed how he imagined the story ending, and talked about the possibility of a follow-up movie. 

'My ambition is to make it a story of a family between two wars, so always I've wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham in 1939. It'll take three more series to reach that point.'

Knight confirmed that he is open to the possibility of bringing Peaky Blinders to the big screen before the show finishes. 

'We're getting approached to do all kinds of things – the ballet, the musical... and the movie would be great. I wouldn't want to do it at the very end, but maybe in between two of the series.'

Last night at the awards, Peaky Blinders took home the award for Best Drama, beating the likes of Netflix's The Crown and Line of Duty. 

The fifth season of Peaky Blinders will air on BBC Two in 2019 and will be released on Netflix.
