Peaky Blinders posts first look at Tommy Shelby in season 6 as BBC filming finally kicks off

PEAKY Blinders posted their first look at Tommy Shelby in season six as the BBC finally kicks off filming.

The official Instagram account of the super-popular show – which is filming its last season – teased fans with a new image.

The photo shows Cillian Murphy. 44, dressed as Tommy next to the crime boss' favourite horse.

He's looking down at his script as the horse cosies up next to him.

However, the page didn't give anything away, with the account tagging director Anthony Byrne and captioning the pic: "#PeakyBlinders series 6."

Peaky Blinders fans immediately flooded the comments with speculation, with one person saying: "It’s got to end with Thomas dying surely?"


Another added: "One picture of Tommy Shelby is enough to get all the attention in the world ??"

A third remarked: "THE WAISTCOAT AND POCKET-WATCH HAS GONE OMG TOMMY HAS A NEW STYLE"

The hit BBC drama had to delay filming due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it's now full steam ahead.

But pictures of the set earlier this week showed they were taking Covid protocols properly – with a designated team making sure everything is in order.

Creator and writer Steven Knight said: “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher.

"We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it."

However, Steven teased there would be more from Peaky Blinders despite the show ending, adding: "While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”

Executive producer Caryn Mandabach said: “Along with our wonderful, supportive, partners at BBC and Netflix, we have been working diligently to ensure we can get Peaky safely back into production; the safety of our cast and crew is always our priority.

"Thank you to all the Peaky fans who have been so unwaveringly supportive and patient.

"Steve’s scripts are incredible and mark the end of an epic story that has entranced audiences since it first started in 2013, but the world of Peaky Blinders will most definitely live on.”

Alongside the announcement, a picture of Cillian Murphy – who plays Tommy Shelby – was also released and showed him wearing a face mask.
