PEAKY Blinders has been renewed for a fourth and fifth season.

Cillian Murphy will return as mob boss Tommy Shelby.

Peaky Blinders, currently in the middle of its third season on BBC2, has been commissioned for a fourth and fifth season as part of a new season of BBC dramas.

The epic 1920s Birmingham-based gangster series, created and written by Steven Knight, began on BBC2 in 2013 and has now become a global hit after Netflix bought it two years ago.

The supporting cast also includes the likes of Tom Hardy and (in this latest series) Paddy Considine.

Speaking about his passion for the series, Murphy described his character Shelby as “one of the most intense, challenging characters I’ve had the opportunity to play”.
