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

We also watched Alfie's death, the news of Lizzie's pregnancy and The Shelby's defeat the Italians once and for all.

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.'

New cast members

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:
