Peaky Blinders Season 6 Updates: Peaky Blinders, created by Steven Knight, has been one of the most popular shows in recent years. Ever since its release in September 2013, the crime show has received numerous awards ranging from Best Costume Design to Best Drama Series.
The fan-favorite British period crime drama follows the Shelby family as they establish their gang, the Peaky Blinders, in the aftermath of the First World War in Birmingham, England. The show is loosely based on a youth gang by the same name that was active from the 1980s to the early 20th century.
With five seasons already running, the shooting for the sixth installment started earlier this year. However, with new reports surfacing about covid protocols being broken on set, fans worry it might delay the show’s release.
In case you’re one such fan, read on to find out if your worries are true.
Peaky Blinders Season 6 delayed yet again?
Although the sixth season does not have an official release date yet, considering the previous seasons’ releases, we figure the show could arrive earliest by September this year. However, with the coronavirus pandemic and government regulations in place, the show might be postponed for a 2022 release.
According to a report by The Guardian, the producers of the show have been accused of putting the crew at risk by allegedly allowing a covid positive staff member to come to the set. This led to the production coming to a halt for three days, from April 26 to April 29. Even after the reports of a breach of Covid protocols onset, there has been no announcement delaying the release of the show either.
Filming for the new season was initially scheduled for early 2020, however, due to the pandemic, the production was postponed. Fans have now been waiting for more than a year for the new season but it seems the wait would be a lot longer.
