PEAKY Blinders is set to return for its sixth and final season next year – and one leading character could be making an unexpected comeback.
Much to the dismay of fans, Cillian Murphy will be heading into his role as the infamous Thomas Shelby for the final time in the BBC fan favourite show.
Ahead of the series finale – which premieres next spring – fans have been teased with a new trailer that featured a familiar face.
On Sunday, the teaser was posted to Instagram showing an exchange between Tommy and Alfie Solomon in a dimly-lit room.
In the clip, Shelby says: “I think I may have written your final act."
At the end of season four, gang leader Alfie appeared to have been shot in the face.
In the finale of season five, it was revealed that Alfie had survived, but the gunshot wound left the mobster unable to see out of his left eye.
While season six may be the final chance Alfie can return on the small screen, creator Steven Knight has announced a bigger project for the flat-cap wearing gangsters’.
Speaking to the BBC, creator Steven said: "We felt what would be a great idea is to, almost in place of that seventh series is to go onto the big screen.
“We're talking about – I don't like the word spin-offs."
Season five left fans on a cliffhanger after Tommy's mental trauma continued to haunt him following the death of his wife Grace.
Hallucinations began to take over when we saw his late-wife return to tell Tommy: "You have to listen to the voices that you hear. Do what they tell you to do.”
While Tommy shared two children with his late wife, his mental health journey seemingly left him ready to join her in the afterlife.
The future for Tommy remains well and truly up in the air – but his plot isn't the only uncertainty.
Sadly, Helen McCrory – who played Aunt Polly – passed away at the age of 52 earlier this year after a long battle with cancer.
Filming had begun in January 2021 before McCrory died in April.
Given the tragic circumstances, it is currently unclear how McCrory will feature in the sixth series.
Peaky Blinders seasons 1-5 are available to watch on the BBC iPlayer now.
