Peaky Blinders fans won’t have to wait too long for the return of the hit series, after its release was teased in a recent update from the BBC.

It’s been more than two years since season five of the gang-inspired drama aired its latest episode, which left viewers on a dramatic cliffhanger.

Leader of the Peaky Blinders, Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy), was seen pointing a gun at his head after having visions of his late wife Grace (Annabelle Wallis), with it not known whether the trigger was pulled.

But it seems as though there’s not much time left until fans will finally get the answers they’ve been waiting so long for as the BBC released the first teaser ahead of season six over the weekend.

It seemingly confirmed the survival of Tommy as he was seen walking through the streets of Birmingham with a suitcase in hand – but when will the series be back on our screens at last?

When is Peaky Blinders season 6 release date?

The first glimpse of the upcoming season was released by the broadcaster on Saturday, via the official Peaky Blinders social media accounts.

The teaser depicts a very much alive Tommy returning to his home after a very troubled season five, with the caption reading: ‘Peaky Blinders series 6. Early 2022 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.’

It increasingly feels as though the show could land a release not long after the New Year after some of the show’s cast and crew have further teased its return.

Director Anthony Byrne posted the teaser on his Instagram account and wrote: ‘We’re coming for you sooner than you think. By order of…’

He previously revealed filming was over after cutting on the final episode earlier this month.

Newcomer to the show Conrad Khan previously spoke to RadioTimes.com on when fans could expect another dose of the action.

He said: ‘That comes out, from what I last heard – I mean, these things change so quickly – I think that will come out next February, the beginning of next year.

‘There was so much footage, so many episodes, that it does take a while to edit – six months or something.’

So it’s possible the show might come to screens in the first two months of 2022.

Where will Peaky Blinders new season first air?

Peaky Blinders will return to BBC iPlayer alongside airing on BBC One.

It’s likely the series will air weekly on the broadcaster, with six episodes expected as usual.

What else do we know about Peaky Blinders season 6?

Cillian Murphy, Sam Clafin, and Paul Anderson will return to their roles, with other regular cast members expected to be back once more.

However, some new faces will also be added in the Peaky Blinders Season 6 cast including Line of Duty star Stephen Graham and 21-year-old Conrad.

Elsewhere, it’s not yet known how the drama will write out beloved star Helen McCrory who died after being ill with cancer earlier this year.

Peaky Blinders season 6 will air in early 2022 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
