Peaky Blinders Season 3 delivered a jaw-dropping finale that sent fans into a frenzy. The third season bowed out with intense drama and a lot of speculations for what’s to come in Peaky Blinders Season 4.
In the final episode, the Peaky Blinders were all arrested, save for Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby. Tommy reassures his angered family that the arrests were workings of the Economic League. In hopes to resolve the problem, Tommy strikes a deal with the government, and it is presumed that Winston Churchill is involved. With this new alliance, Tommy plans to bring down the Economic League and free everyone. So what will go down in Peaky Blinders Season 4? Actor Cillian Murphy reveals that “everything has changed.”
“I think his family thinks that he’s betrayed them. It’ll be up to Tommy to demonstrate to them that he hasn’t betrayed them and that he has a bigger plan,” Murphy said, as quoted by The Independent. “The question is what that bigger plan is. Who is he gonna call? What’s gonna happen to the family? Can he ever get that level of trust or love back again?”
He added that Tommy will continue to strive for more, even if he achieves power and material wealth. “I don’t see him retiring with a pipe and slippers that’s for sure,” Murphy said, perhaps hinting that there’s more intense action and drama to come in Peaky Blinders Season 4.
Fans rallied on Twitter to applaud the Season 3 finale, with one fan calling it “beautiful, gut-twisting, tender, tragic.” But while the overall finale was good, the show also left loose ends for the fourth season, particularly involving the Russians and the Odd Fellows.
Meanwhile, Peaky Blinders has been confirmed for two more seasons—Season 4 and 5—which will likely air in 2016 and 2017, The Independent reported. Both seasons will follow the show’s usual six-episode format.
