BBC Two has kept Peaky Blinders fans on the edge of their seats since the period gangster epic was renewed for a fourth and fifth season in May 2016, and since Season 3 ended in June of that year. The Shelby family, led by Cillian Murphy’s Tommy, is gearing up for a return, with a fourth season teaser that dropped today. We still don’t have an air date, but it’s expected to go later this fall.
The Steven Knight-created drama that’s produced by Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tiger Aspect has added Oscar winner Adrien Brody, Game Of Thrones‘ Aidan Gillen and Happy Valley‘s Charlie Murphy for Season 4 — which folks from the show say is the best one yet. It will also see the return of Charlotte Riley as May Carleton. Check out glimpses in the teaser above, replete with Tom Hardy’s Alfie Solomons, and his dog, on the beach.
The season will kick off with Tommy receiving a mysterious letter on Christmas Eve and realizing the Peaky Blinders are in danger of annihilation. As the enemy closes in, he flees his country house and returns to the streets of Small Heath, Birmingham where a desperate fight for survival begins. As Tommy says in the teaser, “we’re going back.”
