'Peaky Blinders' Gets Fourth and Fifth Season Renewals from BBC
The Cillian Murphy-led crime drama from BBC Two Peaky Blinders is set to return for two more seasons even in the midst of its third, which is currently running in the U.K.
The series, created by Steven Knight, is set to drop its third season on U.S. shores via Netflix from May 31. No word on a Netflix deal for the fourth and fifth seasons yet, though expect a similar arrangement.
Each season will be six episodes long each, and the entirety will be written by Knight. So far, season three has seen Tom Hardy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle and Joel and Finn Cole all return in recurring roles. Paddy Considine joins the cast.
The renewal is "“a fantastic vote of confidence in the show and Steven Knight’s writing," says executive producer Caryn Mandabach. "We’re both proud of, and grateful for, the BBC’s continued support of the show.”
