Peaky Blinders season 6 has now dropped on Netflix globally. Yes, US audiences can finally find out what happens after a painful wait trying to avoid spoilers following its broadcast in the UK.

Plus, there's more to look forward to, as creator Stephen Knight has confirmed that the story will "continue in another form" (more on that later).

In the highly anticipated sixth season, Cillian Murphy reprises his role as Tommy Shelby, and the last series picks up right where we left off. After Tommy's plan to assassinate fascist politician Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) was thwarted, allies including Aberama Gold (Aidan Gillen) met their maker, and we found the crime boss and elected MP contemplating suicide.

Cillian Murphy told us: "Tommy's rise continues in season 6. An awful lot will be revealed in the very first ten minutes of episode one of series six. A lot of what happens in that first ten minutes becomes the engine for the rest of the story and for the rest of the series. I think it'll be a very, very satisfying opening ten minutes for audience members."

So here's everything we know about Peaky Blinders series 6 and the future of the Shelby clan...

What time does Peaky Blinders season 6 air in the US? 

Peaky Blinders season 6 is available on Netflix on Friday, June 10 from 12 a.m. PT / 3 a.m. ET.

Is there a trailer for Peaky Blinders season 6? 

Yes, a Peaky Blinders season 6 trailer was released by the BBC on New Year's Day 2022.

It teasesd the trouble that's in store for Tommy and teases the return of many characters including Alfie Solomons, Esme Shelby Lee and Oswald Mosley. As you'd expect, there's violence aplenty. Check it out below:

What's the plot for Peaky Blinders season 6?

Tommy remains the Deputy Leader of the British Union of Fascists, but his failed assassination attempt put him in a sticky situation. In the final season, you'll see Tommy face up to the consequences of what's come before, as well as facing down a significant threat from Michael Gray, who is seeking revenge for reasons we won't spoil here...

Steven Knight also teased that fans should expect plenty of twists in the final season. He told viewers: "Expect the unexpected. It's about Tommy's redemption, will he or won't he be redeemed?

"There's lots of twists and turns and he's up against some very, very powerful enemies. But his biggest enemy is himself."

Who's in Peaky Blinders season 6?

Cillian Murphy returns as Tommy Shelby alongside the rest of the surviving Shelby clan, including Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby), Harry Kirton (Finn Shelby), and Sophie Rundle (Ada Thorne). Tommy's wife Lizzy (Natasha O'Keefe) is also back, as is Packy Lee (Johnny Dogs).

Michael Gray (Finn Cole) and his wife Gina Gray (The Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy) also play major parts in the final season, despite Gina urging her hubby to strike out on his own in America last time out. 

Gangster Alfie Solomons (Tom Hardy) was thought dead after he and Tommy shot one another...which is why his reappearance at the end of the fifth series came as such a surprise. Fittingly, he's still on board for season six after he came back from the dead.

Tommy's latest nemesis, Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) is also on hand in season 6 to cause further trouble.

Tommy's first wife Grace was killed in the third series, but she came to him in a vision last time out and Annabelle Wallis hinted that her character had a part to play in this final series

Aunt Polly famously resigned from the Shelby company at the end of the last series. Sadly Helen McCrory, who played Aunt Polly, died aged 52 in April 2021. There is a moving tribute to the star in the series.

Are there any new characters in Peaky Blinders season 6? 

Stephen Knight confirmed Stephen Graham (The Irishman, Boardwalk Empire) would appear as a new cast member. Although his involvement was briefly thrown into doubt due to the global pandemic delaying the shooting schedule, those doubts were squashed when Stephen Graham cropped up in a teaser released on the official Peaky Blinders Instagram account on Christmas Day, 2021 (see below).

OK, so here's a spoiler... right well there were lots of rumors about who Stephen might play. It was eventually revealed in episode three that Stephen was playing a union convener character called Hayden Stagg.
