Peaky Blinders wrapped up in 2022 after six seasons, and fans have been patiently waiting for the sequel movie ever since. The show’s creator Steven Knight recently shared an exciting update about this project and revealed it will start shooting later this year.

An interview with Knight was featured in the Christmas double issue of Radio Times magazine, and he shared some good news with the fans of Peaky Blinders.

“I’m just working on the final bits of it at the moment. I just sit down at the keyboard and start. It’s a bit like having a dream, for me. You sit there and all this stuff comes, and then you read it back and think, ‘That’s pretty good – but where did it come from?’” said Knight.

He added that he’s planning to start shooting the sequel in the middle of 2024, but there’s still no official production or release date for this project. It’s also unclear who’ll return for the sequel, but the show’s leading man Cillian Murphy said he “would love to do a movie if there’s more story to tell.”

Peaky Blinders chronicled the adventures of the fictional gang Peaky Blinders, who ruled Birmingham with an iron fist in the wake of the First World War. The show’s ensemble cast also included Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle, Joe Cole, Sam Neill, Annabelle Wallis, Tom Hardy, Adrien Brody, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Stephen Graham, among others.
