‘Peaky Blinders’ new series filming date revealed

The fourth series of Peaky Blinders is to start shooting in March.

Series three of the Birmingham-set crime drama debuted on BBC One in May. The channel announced shortly afterwards that it has ordered a fourth and fifth series.

Now writer-creator Steven Knight, who also co-created new BBC drama Taboo, has given fans a progress update.

“I’m very, very excited because I’m just completing [the writing of] Episode 6 of Series 4, which again I think is the best yet,” he told Deadline. “And I’m loving it and it’s not like work, it’s not like a labour, I love doing it, and the boys are coming back and they’re loving the scripts, and we start shooting in March.”
