When is season five of Peaky Blinders airing?

The BBC commissioned seasons four and five at the same time, and filming for the latest series is currently underway in Manchester and is expected to air in 2019.

Currently Netflix has seasons one, two and three of the hit show available to stream – the streaming service’s air dates for season four are yet to be revealed.

The show is already set for a major shake-up when it returns, as it's been moved from its original home on BBC Two to BBC One.

BBC executive Charlotte Moore said: ”Peaky Blinders is world class drama at the top of its game and the time has arrived for it to move to the UK's biggest channel.

"Steven Knight's epic storytelling is authentic and utterly compelling and I want to give it the chance to be enjoyed by an even broader audience on BBC One.

"We couldn't have asked for a better response to series four and the impact it had with young audiences.

"This move will also give BBC Two more creative headroom to experiment with new drama."

What will the plot be in season five?

The Season 4 finale saw Tommy elected an MP for Birmingham South in a landslide vote as the Shelby clan assume more power than ever.

Series five of the crime family saga will also find the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929.

Meanwhile, creator Steven Knight has previously explained how he would like the upcoming series to explore the rise of fascism in the pre-second-world-war era.

In an interview with the Birmingham Mail, he explained, “There is so much stuff happening as we are going into the 30’s.

"The depression and the rise of fascism form part of the storyline. It is setting those things up.”
