BBC Two Announces ‘Peaky Blinders’ Premiere Date

After 17 months, BBC Two has announced the premiere date for Season Four of Peaky Blinders. The series will return in the UK on November 15 at 9 PM.

The series is based on the exploits of the titular Peaky Blinders gang in Birmingham, England, and is set sometime after the events of World War I. Cillian Murphy stars as the gang’s leader, Tom Shelby, along with Sam Neill, who plays Chester Campbell, a detective who has been given the difficult task of suppressing the gang’s often-violent antics. The show also features Joe Cole, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, and, since Season Two, Tom Hardy, as the leader of a Jewish gang in Camden Town.

Series creator Steven Knight, upon release of the first trailer about a month ago, has described Season Four as the best in the history of the show. There has not, as of yet, been an official announcement regarding a release date in the United States, but this is likely because Netflix is the sole distributor of the series in America. The announcement will probably come after the season has concluded, and then will be released for streaming in its entirety. Netflix does not release weekly installments for its international properties.

As if to hype up additional anticipation for the series, it has also been announced that quite a few new faces will be joining the cast. Adrien Brody, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor when he starred in Roman Polanski’s The Pianist, has joined the cast, along with Aidan Gillen, who plays Littlefinger on Game of Thrones, and Charlie Murphy from Happy Valley. Charlotte Riley will also be returning to the cast.

What do you think of the return of Peaky Blinders? Is it likely that there will be any truth to what Knight says about his own series, or is he just trying to drum up excitement in advance of the premiere?
