Will there be a sixth series of Peaky Blinders? Cillian Murphy "wouldn't be surprised"...

Until recently, we've been going about our lives presuming that next year we'll have to bid a sad farewell to Tommy Shelby and the rest of the Peaky Blinders gang, as creator Steven Knight has regularly suggested that five series of the Birmingham-set drama will be more than enough.

Times appear to be a-changin', though, as in a new interview with Deadline, Knight and his main star Cillian Murphy seem less than sure that series 5 will be the end of the show.

“The thought has long been to finish after season 5," Knight indeed initially confirmed. "But the momentum and love for the thing seems to still be growing exponentially and this is making us pause before deciding finally.”

Oh! Hmm, but what does Murphy think of carrying on in the role? 

“Listen, you know Steve has so many ideas," the actor notes with a laugh. "He’s so inventive, I wouldn’t be surprised. For me, I’ve always said as long as the writing stays as good as it is, I’m around.”

“We are also keeping our minds open as regards a movie," Knight added. "And we are making progress on the musical. Peaky is now a beast that will not die.”

Murphy, it seems, is up for doing a movie. “In theory, yeah absolutely if the writing is as good as it is for the show then for sure.”  

The musical, however? Yeah, not so much. “That’s not for me, I’m going to pass on that one.”

The fourth series of Peaky Blinders will start on Wednesday, 15th November at 9pm on BBC Two. 

More as we have it.
