Just when you had accepted that you would have to be without Peaky Blinders for a while, this bombshell gets dropped. You’ve guessed it. New details about the next series have just been released!

Producers have just revealed who will be directing the next instalment of the epic gangster drama series in 2019.

Deadline.com reported that Anthony Byrne is set to be the show’s director for all six new episodes. Byrne has previously directed ITV’s three-part drama titled Butterfly, as well as co-writing In Darkness with Game Of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer.

Although we desperately hope not, Steven Knight, the show’s creator has previously hinted that series 5 may be the last ever series of Peaky Blinders. As series four came to an end, Steven told Digital Spy: “Each time, we do six episodes [per series]… and can you sum up the story in six episodes? Or do you need another six? That’s the question.

“If it doesn’t need a season six, I don’t think there’ll be one. But it may need one, because [six episodes is] such a short period of time.”

Please Steven, don’t let this be the end!
