Peaky Blinders Season 5 has finally been given a release date. After a two year hiatus we will finally see the shelby family return to our screens on Sunday, August 25 at 9pm on BBC One (formerly BBC Two)
This season the Shelby clan will handle the aftermath of the wall street crash, tackling the heights of facism as they collide with real-life politician Oswald Mosley played by Sam Claflin all while they’re at odds with a new Scottish razor gang.
Peaky Blinders Season 4 debuted on Netflix UK December 19, 2018, a whole year after first airing on TV. So if this is anything to go by Netflix subscribers may have a wait on their hands before streaming the popular series. The fact that BBC iPlayer will now be hosting shows for a year after broadcast further reinforces this theory.
However, Netflix US subscribers shouldn’t have to wait as long being as BBC doesn’t air in the US. Also Peaky Blinders Season 4 Episode 1 was available to stream on Netflix US just six days after first airing on BBC.
This seasons plot synopsis states “Series five of Steven Knight’s crime family saga finds the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere. When Tommy Shelby MP (Cillian Murphy) is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family’s future but that of the entire nation.”
