Nearly three years since the intense cliffhanger of Season 5, the hit British period series Peaky Blinders is gearing up to debut its sixth and final season. Since the start of 2022, the show's official social media accounts have been teasing fans with a nostalgic scavenger hunt of sorts, as well as the official Season 6 trailer.
However, the two things most fans are desperate to know are the release date and where to watch the final season. So, when does Season 6 of Peaky Blinders premiere? Plus, where can fans tune in to witness the conclusion of the historical crime drama? Here's everything we know.
What is the release date for 'Peaky Blinders' Season 6?
With multiple COVID-19 related delays halting production, it was hard to envision a world where a new season of Peaky Blinders would grace our screens again. Nevertheless, the series began filming in January 2021 and concluded on May 27, 2021.
Since then, series creator Steven Knight and editor Dan Roberts have been hard at work cutting the episodes together in time for an early 2022 release date. Thankfully, they achieved their goal, and we can officially confirm that Season 6 of Peaky Blinders will premiere on Sunday, Feb. 27, 2022.
Early morning on Feb. 15, the Peaky Blinders and BBC official social media accounts teamed up to announce the Season 6 release date. In the joint post, the Manchester-based artist Akse heads to Digbeth, Birmingham, to spraypaint a massive mural on the side of a building.
As he looks to a photo for guidance, the camera pans out and slowly shows the painting coming together to show Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy). By the end of the video, the release date is visible for all to see.
Where can we watch Season 6 of 'Peaky Blinders'?
For those in the United Kingdom, you can tune in to watch the epic conclusion of Peaky Blinders on Feb. 27, 2022, at 9 p.m. GMT (4 p.m. EST) on BBC One. Each of the final six episodes will air weekly. As for international fans, including the United States, it's hard to say when Season 6 will be available to stream on Netflix.
But the streaming giant and the BBC struck a deal that gives Netflix the rights to new episodes approximately six weeks after the BBC does. So, we can safely assume that Season 6 of Peaky Blinders will arrive on Netflix around mid-to-late April 2022.
"And then I am going to write the feature which will be set in and shot in Birmingham," Steven said during the panel. "And that will probably be the sort of the end of the road for Peaky Blinders as we know it."
Season 6 of Peaky Blinders premieres on Sunday, Feb. 27, 2022, on BBC One.
