‘Peaky Blinders’ season 6 is finally around the corner, and the BBC has just confirmed the release date of what is set to be the last installment of the show. The ultimate season was a long time coming, facing unfortunate delays due to the pandemic. The director Anthony Byrne has been teasing the release of the sixth season for a while now. After hinting at the date of arrival being near back in 2021, BBC has finally confirmed the show’s return to the screens on February 27, 2022.

Fans have been excitedly anticipating the continuation of Tommy Shelby’s story and what its last chapter will entail for the charismatic character. There has also been a lot of speculations regarding other major hitters like Alfie Solomons. Tom Hardy is once again set to reprise his role, along with Anya Taylor-Joy and most of the main cast. One significant absence from the main cast this season will be that of Helen McCrory. The actor sadly passed away at the age of 52 last year.

Helen McCrory Will Be Absent in the Final Season

Following her tragic passing due to cancer last year, Helen McCrory’s absence will come as a significant sadness for the fans. Helen played Aunt Polly, the matriarchal figure of the Shelby Clan. Cillian Murphy recently told in an interview that Helen could’ve been in the last season had it not been for the delays caused by the pandemic.

Talking about the late actor and her character, a spokesperson recently said that Polly’s presence is felt by Tommy and all of the Shelby Clan. “Her influence is an integral part of the season,” the spokesperson went on to add. Murphy also confirmed that the actor didn’t get to film any scenes for the last season. “Helen was the heart of that show, and it was hard to make it without her,” Murphy said.

Hardy Returns as Solomons with Stephen Graham Joining the Cast

On a more cheerful end of the news regarding the cast for season 6, Solomons is returning. After the surprising return from supposed death in season 4, Solomons’ inclusion in season 6 had been dubious. That was until last month when a ten-second clip on social media confirmed his return.

Apart from Hardy’s characters, along with the other major players, there’s a new addition to the fray. Stephen Graham is going to play a new character in the final season. However, what his character will be about has been under wraps so far.
