Peaky Blinders series 5: first look photo and plot details

With filming currently underway on the fifth series of Peaky Blinders, the BBC have given us our first details on what to expect from the Shelbys’ return…

When Peaky Blinders hits our screens again we’ll find “the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere. When Shelby is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realizes that his response will affect not just his family’s future but that of the entire nation.”

Returning to the series 4 cast are – deep breath – Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Finn Cole, Kate Phillips, Natasha O’Keefe, Aidan Gillen, Jack Rowan, Charlie Murphy, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Harry Kirton, Packy Lee, Ned Dennehy, Ian Peck, and Benjamin Zephaniah.

As always it’ll be written by creator Steven Knight and directed by Ripper Street‘s Anthony Byrne. Executive producers include Caryn Mandabach, Knight, Jamie Glazebrook, David Mason, Patrick Spence, Cillian Murphy and Tommy Bulfin.

We’ve even got a lovely pic of Cillian Murphy astride a magnificent steed:

Peaky Blinders will air on BBC One next year.
