New details about the fifth season of Peaky Blinders have been revealed.
By the way, don’t read on if you haven’t watched the last season there are some SPOILERS here guys.
So at the end of season four, things turned out nicely for the Shelbys. Both Alfie Solomons and Luca Changretta were disposed of and Tommy even became the Labour MP for Birmingham South.

But Paul Anderson, who plays Arthur Shelby, has warned fans not to presume the family will be settling down in season five.
He told Metro:
Arthur’s not gonna be a politician. He’s got political ties now, let’s put it that way. But you won’t see him at no rallies or in Parliament.
What it gives Arthur and his family is more power. Tommy is in a position of power, and he can only get stronger in that position.
So we’ll all have more cover, we’ll have more opportunity, and more protection. And by protection I mean by society and the police and so on. We’ll be able to get away with things under the guise of, “we’re politicians, we’re respectable”. But we’ll be able to manipulate things more. Arthur will be even more Arthur. So it will be a lot of fun.
There’s always that sort of doubt and uncertainty over whether they’ll kill me off because of who I play and the way he conducts himself. There’s certainly justification for somebody to take revenge on Arthur, so I’m always thinking maybe they’ll kill me this season.
But you do get told before you start shooting. I do remember reading the scene where Arthur is strangled and you think he’s dead. ‘When I read that no one told me whether I was dead or not. I read it and I didn’t reappear for another 20 pages so I was like, “they’ve killed Arthur – I wish someone would have told me!”
We can’t wait for this.
