Peaky Blinders season 5 ending: Creator teases ‘unexpected’ Tommy Shelby conclusion

The fifth season of Peaky Blinders has been full of twists and turns, and according to creator Steven, there are plenty more to come. As Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) prepares to take dow fascist Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin), he’s warned things won’t play out as fans expect.

Speaking exclusively to from the Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival, Steven teased: “There’s lots of tricks as ever. Lots of surprises.

“If you’re expecting something, it probably won’t happen, if you’re not expecting something, it might happen.

“It’s going to build to a climax, obviously there is the struggle with Mosley which continues and comes to a head as well as with the Glasgow gangs.

“So yeah, there’s a lot going on and as I say, a lot of surprises.”

Steven didn’t stop there either as he went on to address Tommy’s plot for Mosley because as history shows, the fascist did not die until 1980 – quite some time after Peaky Blinders.

“It certainly will lead in series six which I’m just completing at the moment,” Steven explained.

“So basically lots of things will be tied up at the end of the final episode.

“Other things will be left, as usual, as a cliffhanger.”

Following the death of Ben Younger, fans may be expecting there to be a lot of blood spilled in the finale but Steven hinted that might not be the way.

When asked if there was a major death ahead, he coyly replied: “The thing is if there’s a big surprise and I tell you, it won’t be a big surprise.

“That’s why I try not to give specific detail. Expect the unexpected is what I would say.”

However, fans can rest easy that Aunt Polly (Helen McCrory) is likely to survive until at least season six.

Teasing details of his plan for Aunt Polly, who is now engaged to Aberama Gold (Aidan Gillen), Steven confirmed: “Yes there is a plan sort of in place.

“Particularly Polly who is a central character who will go all of the way.

“So, I do you know, imagine how things will go for her.

“I’m now writing series six so I know some things that will happen but I’m not yet planning series seven so who knows where it will go.”

With just one episode left of season five, Steven did share the good news the sixth run won’t be far behind.

“We dislike waiting as much as the fans dislike it, we want to get it done,” he said.

“Those gaps, they’re sometimes to do with availability and so we have to sort of juggle things but this time we’ve got a pretty good routine for series six and seven.

“So, I think we’re going to be quite regular from now on.”

Peaky Blinders concludes tonight on BBC One at 9pm.
