Peaky Blinders Season 6: Cast
No cast has been confirmed for season 6. But we’re hoping that the previous would reprise their previous. The story would be incomplete if these characters don’t make a comeback. Moreover, the spectacular cast of the series makes it worthwhile. The previous cast includes:
- Cillian Murphy plays the character of Thomas “Tommy” Shelby
- Helen McCrory plays the character Elizabeth “Polly” Gray
- Paul Anderson plays the character of Arthur Shelby
- Sophie Rundle plays the character of Ada Thorne
- Ned Dennehy plays the character of Charlie Strong
- Benjamin Zephaniah plays the character of Jeremiah ‘Jimmy’ Jesus,
- Tom Hardy plays the character of Alfred “Alfie” Solomons
- Finn Cole plays the character of Michael Gray
Speculations are that there may be new additions to the cast. In addition to this, it is confirmed, that a new mysterious female character is to be introduced. We’re still waiting for the cast to be confirmed for this new character.
Peaky Blinders Season 6: Plot
A new mysterious female character is all set to be introduced in season 6. So we’re speculating that season 6 will mostly revolve around her. According to Knight, she is set to have the same ideology of Mosley. At the same time, he confirmed, that she will not be a protagonist. But fans have theories, that she could certainly be an antagonist.
In the previous season, we saw Tommy becoming the Deputy leader of the British Union. Along with him was Oswald Mosley. Tommy makes an assassination attempt on Mosley, but it fails. Seems like someone betrayed him.
Fans are hoping that the question will finally be answered in season 6. We’ll find out who deceived Tommy. Other theories suggest, that Michael, will become an enemy in the upcoming season.
Peaky Blinders Season 6: Storyline
The series is in 19th Century England. It revolves around the exploitation of the Shelby Family. Furthermore, the inspiration of the series is an urban youth gang from the 1890s, who went by the same name.
