After one of the most memorable ends to a season in recent memory, Peaky Blinders is set to make a return to our screens in 2019, with the hugely popular British production airing its fifth season later on this year.
Peaky Blinders Season 5 Preview
Peaky Blinders had already established a huge following through its first three seasons, but in the fourth the stakes lifted another notch, and the season ended in a bloody gang war which saw the Changretta family defeated by the Shelby clan. With a new status quo and an increasingly volatile Tommy Shelby boasting more power than ever before, intrigue for what awaits has never been higher than for the upcoming season.
The vast majority of the shows biggest stars who have contributed to making the show such a success will return in 2019, led, of course, by Cillian Murphy as Tommy Shelby, as well as Helen McRory as Aunt Polly, Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby, and Sophie Rundle as Ada Shelby amongst many more. With more action, higher stakes and the same great characters as in seasons past, Season Five of Peaky Blinders is shaping up as must-watch television.
How to Watch or Stream Peaky Blinders
The exact date of the release of Peaky Blinders Season Five hasn’t yet been set, but we can make an educated guess as to when it will be aired. Based on the time between when previous seasons have wrapped up filming and when they have aired, it’s looking the show will be returning to our screen in around September of this year, though BBC hasn’t, as yet, gotten any more specific than that.
When it is released, you’ll have the option of watching each episode as they drop on BBC One, or, alternatively, you’ll be able to stream the entire season free with BBC One’s iPlayer once it’s made available. The iPlayer – which is free of charge – will be the home of all the episodes are available once they’re aired, meaning all you need to do is create an account and you can binge the entire season in one go, or catch up as you need to on episodes you might have missed.
