Release Date

We don't have an official release date for Peaky Blinders season 5 just yet.

However, we do know the season will return sometime this year.

The BBC confirmed the news on Twitter all the way back in 2017 on the same day season 4 ended.

While the tweet says the show will return to BBC Two this is now incorrect.

Due to the popularity of the series, season 5 will air to a larger audience on BBC One.

Filming started in September 2018 so we're predicting a summer or early autumn release date.

Cast

Most of our favourite cast members will return.

Although Charlotte Riley and, for obvious reasons, husband Tom Hardy are ruled out.

In addition, some exciting new characters are being added into the mix.

Most notably, The Hunger Game's Sam Claflin has been cast as Oswald Mosley, a fascist dictator.

Here's a look at the rest of the newbies:

Plot

Season 4 ended with Tommy becoming a Labour MP in Birmingham South.

Season 5 begins in 1929 during the aftermath of a big financial crisis.

The official description reads:

'When Tommy Shelby MP is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family's future but that of the entire nation.'

'Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere.'

Trailer

There's no official trailer out yet but we have been given a sneak peek at season 5.

The BBC shared a round up of their 2019 drama offerings last week and Peaky Blinders featured:

What else do I need to know?

Season 4 dropped on Netflix just before Christmas giving us all a chance to get caught up before new episodes land.

We also learned in December that a Peaky Blinders movie is in the works.

In other news, creator Steven Knight revealed at the TV BAFTAs the show will finish after season 7.

Meaning we've three more seasons to look forward to!

Finally, it looks like season 5 will take the Shelby family stateside.

On set photos revealed a very American looking Liverpool street.
