Peaky Blinders is a British crime drama television series created by Steven Knight. It is set in Birmingham, England, and shows the unjust rule of the Shelby crime family. The family is based on an urban youth gang that exploited the people of the post-WW-1 world.

The first four seasons of the show were released on BBC Two while the fifth was released on BBC One. The first season of the show came out on September 12, 2013. The show has won the hearts of many. It is still popular until this date. The show running successfully until the fifth season with its sixth season being filmed itself proves its success story.

The show also managed to win a lot of awards due to its amazing cast and a great storyline. Among all, the BAFTA TV Awards for Drama Series in 2018 was a great success for the show.
