Peaky Blinders'
Season 6 Finale
Was Almost
Completely Different
The sixth and final season of "Peaky Blinders" aired earlier in 2022 and, according to creator and writer Steven Knight, the story will continue as a feature film. However, this wasn’t always the plan, and Knight revealed that he made some major changes to the ending of the series.
Knight originally had planned to end the show with the start of World War II. "I … have revised the scope of what it is. It will now go into and beyond the Second World War. Because I just think the energy that is out there in the world for this. I want to keep it going," Knight said, voicing his interest in exploring where the story could go during and after the globe-spanning conflict.
Knight also noted that part of the reason why he broadened the scope of "Peaky Blinders" in the end had to do with the fan support for it. The overwhelming response to it all told him that he could keep the story alive and go further with it, and it's that fan interaction that has him so eager to get the "Peaky Blinders" movie out there.
