Peaky Blinders' boss confirms "story is not yet over" on show's 10-year anniversary

It's good news for Peaky Blinders fans, as creator Steven Knight has confirmed the story "is not yet over".

Sharing a message to fans in honour of the hit drama's 10-year anniversary, Knight said: "It hardly seems believable that it's 10 years since Tommy Shelby first rode that black horse through the streets of Birmingham.

"The phenomenal global success of the show is down to the brilliance and hard work of the loyal team that makes it happen. 10 years on and the story is not yet over. Watch this space."

The message was shared to the official Peaky Blinders Instagram page, which added: "Huge thanks to our incredible fans for the past ten years. Here’s to the next ten…"

Following the show's season six finale last year, Knight revealed plans to make a film that would serve as the seventh and final chapter.

While this could be what Knight was referring to, the teaser "here's to the next ten..." seems to suggest that more seasons or a spin-off series are being considered.

Updates on the status of the film have been scarce in recent months, with Tommy Shelby actor Cillian Murphy admitting in July that even he hasn't had an update.

"That’s probably the worst thing about Peaky Blinders – getting asked about the movie all the time!" he joked. "I would love to do a movie if there’s more story to tell. I’ll wait and see but I have no update for you on that."

Murphy echoed his own words from May, when he said at the time: "If there's more story there, I'd love to do it. But it has to be right. Steve Knight wrote 36 hours of television, and we left on such a high. I'm really proud of that last series. So, it would have to feel legitimate and justified to do more."

Peaky Blinders is available to stream on BBC iPlayer and Netflix.
