'Peaky Blinders' Confirms A Release Date For Season 5

Tommy and his brothers will be sending a big thanks to Father Christmas this year following the news that Peaky Blinders will definitely be returning for more booze-soaked mayhem.

Just as season four of draws to a close in the UK and picks up for business in the US, BBC Two has made everyone's festive wishes come true with the confirmation that the show will be back with a fifth season at some point in 2019.

The news follows the final episode of season four "The Company", which left fans pretty shook (no spoilers). For the moment, all we know about the next chapter is that it will be split into six episodes as usual and may be the last ever season of the show.

Nevertheless, showrunner Steven Knight is keeping an open mind for a potential sixth installment and already has a few ideas in mind. With the series popular as ever, we're guessing he won't be able to resist giving the Shelby clan a bit more screen time. 

In the meantime, why not celebrate the news with a Peaky Blinders whiskey, rum or gin? It's that time of year, after all.
