Peaky Blinders set for 3 more series

Share article:

"Peaky Blinders" is set to continue for another three series - and the creator is keen to make a movie of the drama.

Steven Knight is planning to pen another three seasons of the hard-hitting show - which won a TV BAFTA in the Drama Series category last night (13.05.18) - to take it up to the beginning of World War Two in 1939, and he is up for bringing the programme to the big screen.

Speaking at the Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards at London's Royal Festival Hall on Sunday (13.05.18), he said: "My ambition is to make it a story of a family between two wars, so I always wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham 1939. Three more series.

"We're getting approached to all kinds of things. The ballet, the musical, and a movie would be great.

"I wouldn't want to do it at the very end, maybe in between two of the series."

Steven remained coy on whether any big-name stars will be in series five, admitting he approaches celebrity cameos with caution because he wouldn't want such actors to "swamp" the show.

He added: "It's difficult because some great people come to us and say they want to be in it. Some people would swamp it if they were in it.

"So we try not to do that. But if a really good actor expresses an interest and there's a role they would be interested in then..."

One big name who will not be appearing in the next series is infamous American crime boss Al Capone, who was referenced in the series four finale, which has since prompted speculation from fans that the character could turn up in the show.

Steven added: "There's not going to be any Al Capone. There really isn't."

"Peaky Blinders" beat off competition from "The Crown", "Line of Duty" and "The End of the F***ing World" to scoop its first ever TV BAFTA in the Drama Series category.
