Peaky Blinders season 5's trailer has exploded onto the internet, teasing Cillian Murphy aka Tommy Shelby's new far-right enemy Oswald Mosley and a potential death.
Tommy is seen cradling a body next to an exploded car, while Aunt Polly (Helen McCrory) approaches the disaster with her gun raised – could this tease a potential death?
Meanwhile, real-life politician Mosley (Sam Claflin) is shown leading a march, where he shouts: "England lives tonight and marches on." Mosley went on to be the leader for the British Union of Fascists in the UK.

The trailer, which mostly shows footage from the show's first episode, has Peaky Blinders leader and new MP for Birmingham South bragging: "We own the ropes now, who's going to hang us, eh?"
We also catch a glimpse of Tommy's new child with Lizzie Stark (Natasha O'Keeffe), Michael Gray (Finn Cole) and his new American love interest played by Anya Taylor-Joy.
Tommy is also seen shooting a mysterious cross with a machine gun, which makes up one of the most intense moments from the premiere episode. Plus, what could potentially be Tommy's offices in Westminster have their windows blown open from an explosion.
Speaking to the Obsessed With Peaky Blinders podcast with Digital Spy's Editor, Laurence Mozafari, the show's creator Steven Knight said: "Tommy is an MP. It's the early '30s and it's the first stirrings of fascism and nationalism and populism and there's particular politicians that were happy to stir that up and make use of it and get votes from it.
"And Tommy has to face that and it's part of what I feel will hopefully, eventually, maybe be a rehabilitation of him because when he comes across that, how's he going to react? Is he going to go with it? Is he going to oppose it?
"You will see that there are parallels in the ways that people spoke, politicians, what they were saying in those days – it's so similar to today. Somehow Peaky, when it comes to doing the next series, something is going on that is really relevant to what was going on then. Which is great. Well, it's not great, it's awful. But it's useful."
Sadly we STILL don't have a confirmed release date for the show, aside from the "soon".
However, there is some more big news around the show – creator Steven Knight has confirmed a role for fan-favourite Stephen Graham in season 6 or 7.
Peaky Blinders will move to BBC One when it returns later in 2019.
Obsessed With… Peaky Blinders with Digital Spy's Editor, Laurence Mozafari, is out now and available to listen to on BBC Sounds.
