Michael Gray (Finn Cole) has offered a small update on the status of the production.
And I’ll do my best to be there for what they need me for here. But it’s a little too early to say, unfortunately, what exactly is going to happen.”
Finn added about the scripts: “It’s all still to come, but I believe that it’s going to be coming soon. So once I’ve got those scripts, then I’ll know exactly what’s happening, and when I’m going to have to do it. But until then, I’m just like every other fan – I just can’t wait to get started on it, and I can’t wait to see it.”
When will season 6 start shoot?
Peaky Blinders season 6 had its shooting delayed due to the pandemic. Director Anthony Byrne previously confirmed that the production was aiming to kick off in early 2021. We also hope it could return to filming in 2021.
Byrne told GQ: “Steve [Knight, writer] sent me a really great email saying this was the best it’s ever been, and he couldn’t believe the rushes he was seeing.
Cillian Murphy started talking to me about it. We had a great relationship and he clearly liked what I was doing. Then Steve was on set and asked me officially… I really had to think about it because it’s a massive commitment to make, but it felt like this series is part one of two. I think previous series had very definite endings, whereas I think this series doesn’t end that way. So I felt more and more that I wanted to come back and finish this.
I’m reading the scripts at the moment, which Steven is writing. I start properly on series six in early November. Then we start shooting early next year, is the plan.”
On Peaky Blinders season 6 episodes:
Director Anthony Byrne said that they have considered longer episodes: “We talked about it for the first episode of season 6 and then the final episode of season 6, the idea is great and it would be cool to do.”
He shared a picture of the script for episode 1, ‘Black Day.’
