The show’s creator says he wants to keep the world going


Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has apparently confirmed plans for spin-offs from the hit BBC drama.

Though the next series will be the show’s last, Knight told the Birmingham Mail that a movie version would follow.

He also said he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of further projects set in the Peaky universe.

“It will go on in another form, which will be the film, and beyond that we want to keep the world going,” he said.

“In other words, the story of Small Heath and the Shelby family will continue on. I want to keep it going until… whenever.”

Knight admits it would be strange  for the series “to work without Cillian (Murphy)… in the form it is in”.

But he told the Birmingham Mail that spin-offs could move beyond the Shelby family as the franchise “grows and progresses”.
