Peaky Blinders fans will finally get to see the long-awaited final series when season six premieres on 27 February.
The sixth season, which will be the first not to feature Helen McCrory after her death last year, will see viewers tune in to discover how the story will end for the notorious Shelby family.
The popular BBC show follows the lives of the family as their gang rises to prominence in post-war Birmingham and the release date was revealed with a special mural in Digbeth on 15 February.
A striking 12.71m (41.7ft) high mural of the series’ gang leader Tommy Shelby has been painted on the side of a building overlooking the Old Crown pub read: “final series 27 Feb”.
The image was painted over seven days by street artist Akse, who also painted the now highly recognisable portrait of footballer Marcus Rashford in Manchester last year.
The new episodes will be the first not to feature McCrory as the family matriarch Polly Gray, after the actor died of cancer in April 2021 when filming had been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The actor's death was announced last month by her husband and fellow actor Damian Lewis.
He released a statement saying the Skyfall and Harry Potter star had died peacefully at home.
Speaking to Esquire magazine earlier this year, Cillian Murphy – who plays the infamous Tommy Shelby – stated: “She was a dear, dear pal and she was the beating heart of that show, so it felt very strange being on set without her.”
“It’s just… I still can’t believe she’s not here. It doesn’t make sense. I’ve never lost anyone like that – who was young and a friend. It was very confusing. But she was magnificent. She was an absolutely magnificent person.”
The mural was commissioned by the BBC to celebrate the start of the final series which will welcome new cast members including The Irishman star Stephen Graham and County Lines newcomer Conrad Khan.
Series six of Peaky Blinders will air on BBC One on 27 February 2 and will also be available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
