Peaky Blinders actor Conrad Khan has let slip when the show’s long-awaited sixth season might appear on our screens since it last came to a close back in 2019.

The last viewers saw of main man Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy), he had a gun to his head after seeing visions of late wife Grace (Annabelle Wallis).

With it having been over two years since we last caught up with the Birmingham-based gang, fans are desperate to know the fate of their favourite characters.

Now, one cast member has given the biggest hint so far as to when viewers might finally see the show on-screen once more.

21-year-old Khan, who is set to join the long-running drama as a new character, recently spoke out about when fans could expect another dose of action.

Speaking recently to RadioTimes.com, he shared that season six will air early in 2022.

He said: ‘That comes out, from what I last heard – I mean, these things change so quickly – I think that will come out next February, the beginning of next year.

‘There was so much footage, so many episodes, that it does take a while to edit – six months or something.’

Whilst promoting the second season of BBC’s Baptiste, he confirmed filming had wrapped on Peaky Blinders a few months back.

He added to the publication: ‘That [filming] was super enjoyable.

‘It’s quite different to [Baptiste] in a sense that it’s more action based rather than psychological drama, but that was such an amazing experience.’

It comes just a few days after the show’s creator Stephen Knight promised the upcoming season will be the ‘best yet’ ahead of its release.

He was asked whether one of the show’s major stars, Helen McCrory, who sadly passed away from cancer in April, aged 52, would be seen in new episodes as her alter-ego – matriarch Aunt Polly.

Steven told BirminghamLive: ‘In the show, you certainly will. There are plans for other things which may precede broadcasting.

‘It (season six) will be, in my opinion, by far the best yet. More of the same but different.’

The BBC declined to comment on the show’s release date when approached by Metro.co.uk.

Seasons 1-5 of Peaky Blinders can be streamed on BBC iPlayer now.
