The sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders just dropped on Netflix, but the story isn't over for Tommy Shelby and his Birmingham crew. Rather than concluding the show's run on television, the last chapter of the PB's tale will take place on film, show creator Steven Knight confirmed in 2021.

Here's everything we know about Peaky Blinders the movie.

What's next for Peaky Blinders?

Season 7 was supposed to complete the character arc on Tommy Shelby’s hardships such as the passing of his daughter, and his difficult transition of creating a new moral worldview. Now, though, it sounds like a new season is out of the question, according to Knight.

So, there's definitely a Peaky Blinders movie on the way?

There will definitely be a film to finish the franchise.“I am going to write a feature which will be set in and shot in Birmingham,” Knight said. “And that will probably be the sort of the end of the road for Peaky Blinders as we know it.”

With filming starting in 2023, fans can expect the movie to release in either 2024 or 2025.

Who will appear in the film?

We don't know much about who will be included in the film's cast, but Knight has appeared to confirm that Cillian Murphy will be returning as Tommy, as well as Paul Anderson as his brother Arthur. When asked whether the two actors would be returning to thePeaky universe, Knight told Digital Spy, "It's impossible to say yet. But the film—yes." He also added, "There are so many people, so many great actors, that we are already, sort of, in conversation with for the film, and for whatever follows. But I think what we want to do is keep surprising people, and keep breaking new talent. Because it's all out there, and there is a sort of consistency— what we're doing is finding really good actors from a working-class sort of background, and telling that story. That's what we're trying to do."
