We’ve been waiting for months and here we are, the season 5 official trailer of Peaky Blinders is finally out.
You don’t f*ck with the Peaky Blinders. That’s it, Tommy Shelby and all the family are back and we can (at last) have a preview of the next episodes with the first official trailer of Peaky Blinders season 5 unveiled by the BBC. As you can see in the video below, Tommy is going to have something to do with his place in the UK Parliament, and it is mostly the international context that could give him a hard time. The 30’s are slowly but surely moving, which means that in Germany one of the darkest eras in history is about to begin.
Season 5 will also star a new high-profile actor, discover who it is in the next paragraph!
New high-profile actor
To stand up to Cillian Murphy is another high-profile actor who is about to land in Season 5 of Peaky Blinders: Sam Claflin. The latter will play Oswald Mosley, a far-right politician who will quickly become head of the British Union of Fascists. The politics of the country will therefore be at the heart of the intrigues of the next episodes and the Shelby will face emerging nationalism and populism among different social classes. With a position of power there will be big enemies who are waiting for Tommy, something to renew effectively for the series. Gone are the days of small gang wars, Tommy is in the big leagues.
Now, if you are a true fan and especially if living in the UK, you for sure need to read what’s coming on the next page: the official Peaky Blinders festival in Birmingham!
Peaky Blinders Festival
For the official launch of season 5 of the BBC Two and Netflix series, the city of Birmingham is hosting the first official Peaky Blinders festival on September 14th and 15th.
The “Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival” is orchestrated by Steven Knight, creator of the series. It will be an opportunity to offer the public a selection of entertaining activities around the series: concerts of artists Anna Calvi, who participated in the BO of this new season, the duo Slaves, DJ Mike Skinner and Nadine Shah. With this, it is possible that Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds comes to interpret the credits of the series.
There will be something for everyone at Peaky Blinders Festival!
The series takes place between the two wars, in the heart of Birmingham, in a family of gypsy criminals led by Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy). Because of its cinematographic aspect and the atmosphere it radiates, it has been hailed by critics. The festival will try to immerse visitors in this atmosphere by offering an exhibition on the accessories of the series and an immersive experience in the world of Peaky Blinders. A show choreographed by Benoit Swan Pouffer and played by Pascal Rambert will also be scheduled, as well as a fashion show and poetry battles, a way to stage or music poetic texts.
Steven Knight, very invested in this festival, will be present on site for an interview with fans of the series. Tickets will be available for sale from August 9 on the festival website. It is likely that the date chosen for this event is also the date of the release of season 5. No doubt that fans will enjoy the festival especially those who are eager to see the new season land.
Unfortunately at this stage, the official release date of Season 5 is yet to be announced and we all can’t wait to know about it!
Edit: the season 5 will be aired on BBC on August 25th, 2019! Don’t miss it!
