Netflix Is Making Two Peaky Blinders Spin-offs

Peaky Blinders, Netflix’s British crime-thriller series, was speculated to be making a slow reappearance after the final season in 2022. Nevertheless, it has now been made public that Netflix intends to launch its own Peaky Blinders series. The streaming service is supposedly creating at least two spinoffs based on the adored crime drama.

The Peaky Blinders street gang from Birmingham is the focus of the original show, which dramatizes their activities in England between 1919 and 1933 and the ascent to prominence of Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy), the group’s leader in the series. Now, a Bloomberg story claims that Netflix is developing a prequel series in addition to a sequel for the show. The second will center on Polly Gray, the matriarch of the Shelby crime organization.

The report reads, “One of those would be set in Boston during the middle of the 20th century, a couple of decades after the original Peaky Blinders, while another would focus on Polly, the matriarch of the criminal Shelby clan.”

It is quite evident that if Netflix is successful, the streaming service will be enlarging an already fantastic universe. Although there are no specifics yet regarding what these episodes would include, the choice to hold the sequel in Boston could point to a more extensive plot for the renowned American crime leader Jack Nelson (James Frecheville). “Uncle Jack” had difficult interactions with the Birmingham gang and its leader, Tommy, in the sixth season of Peaky Blinders.

The main cause of these strained ties was Tommy’s soured interactions with his cousin Michael Gray (Finn Cole); Michael’s wife Gina Gray (Anya Taylor-Joy) is the uncle of Jack Nelson. Elizabeth Pollyanna “Polly” Gray was killed off-screen before the beginning of the sixth season. Hence, the Elizabeth Pollyanna “Polly” Gray series is probably a prequel. Tommy and Michael became enraged at Aunt Polly’s death, with Tommy holding Michael responsible for it. But Polly’s demise was preordained by the tragic death of Helen McCrory in 2021.


Stephen Knight On the Project

Peaky Blinders, a Stephen Knight creation, premiered in 2013 and ran for six seasons, covering a variety of topics including violence, betrayal, crime, and political intrigue. The show concluded in 2022. Following the event, director Knight talked of making a full-length movie that would try to resolve the unclear finale. “Yes, I’m writing it right now. I’m nearly done writing it, and we’re going to shoot it… I’m setting up some film and television studios in Digbeth in Birmingham,” Knight had said in July 2022.

Despite Knight’s consistent optimism over the years, Murphy had earlier this year, cast doubt on the film’s development, saying “If there’s more story there, I’d love to do it, but it has to be right.” With a sequel rumored, a full-length movie might be required to enter the bloodbath of the Boston staged series.
