'Peaky Blinders': When is Season 5 Coming to Netflix? How Many Seasons Will There Be?

The trailer for Peaky Blinders Season 5 has dropped and people are excited. The epic gangster drama starring Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Sam Claflin, Helen McCrory, Charlene McKenna, Sophie Rundle and Natasha O'Keeffe is set in the lawless streets of 1920s Birmingham, U.K.

It follows a former war hero, Thomas "Tommy" Shelby (Cillian Murphy), and his family as they become one of the most powerful street gangs, the Peaky Blinders, turning from crime to "legitimate business." The end of Season 4 saw the defeat of the Changretta family and Tommy becoming the MP for Birmingham South.

The Season 5 trailer seems to play on the theme of Thomas' time in the Great War (WWI) as well as the Peaky Blinders' "owning the ropes" and avoiding being hanged. The voice-over says "There's God… and then there's the Peaky Blinders."

But the trailer hints that some sort of depression is on the way, with one of the female characters saying: "No one's gonna hang you Tommy. You're gonna hang yourself." The trailer certainly shows some dark moments with Tommy, and with the Great Depression on the horizon, it will be interesting to see how it plays out for the Shelby's.

The world premiere of Season 5 took place on July 18, 2019, in Birmingham, where there was a special screening of Season 5, Episode 1. The female cast may also play more of a role in this Season 5, with the actresses receiving praise following the world premiere.

Christina Savvas of Birmingham Live, who has seen the first episode, wrote on Twitter: "I've seen the first episode and it's incredible. The female actresses, in particular, are amazing."

However, the end isn't necessarily in sight for our favorite mobster family. Peaky Blinders writer, Steven Knight, spoke at the BAFTAs this year and said the show would end after Season 7, meaning we have three more seasons to go.

The official return date of Peaky Blinders is August 25, 2019, starting at 9:00 p.m. BST on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, according to the BBC. Netflix, which has all episodes up to Season 4, has not announced when it will feature the new series.

While there's no official announcement, based on Season 4, we can speculate. The BBC published the trailer for Season 4 on September 29, 2017. The first episode for the series then aired on BBC One on November 15, 2017; six weeks after the trailer.

In regards to Netflix, Season 4 started airing on December 21, 2017, the day after the season finished on BBC One. According to IMDb, Season 5 is expected to have six episodes, meaning that the last episode will air September 29, 2019, meaning Netflix could announce its own dates for September 30, 2019.

Following the release of the trailer, fans took to social media to show their excitement. Wales Online reporter Katie Gupwell said: "I've lost it so much over the #PeakyBlinders trailer I am now going to rewatch all my fav eps."
