It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for, the BBC has finally announced that the first episode of Peaky Blinders Series 4 will be aired on Wednesday the 15th of November, on BBC 2 at 9 PM.

Last night the red carpet was laid out in anticipation for the cast of Peaky Blinders to walk down. Hosted at Cineworld on Broad Street, the stars walking the carpet included Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory and Steven Knight. The A-listers met fans on the red carpet, signed signatures and posed for photographs.

Cillian Murphy (Thomas Shelby) said of the show that, ‘it’s the original writing, it’s so unexpected and unpredictable which is why it has such a following.’

For those lucky enough to get a ticket at the premiere, the exhilaration felt before watching the first episode was almost too much to bear. The episode of the gangster drama was action-packed, unexpected and extremely exciting. Without giving anything away, I am certain you will not be disappointed!

Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby) said, ‘I know reading it and I know shooting it was such a great experience and it felt like we were doing something different.’

With just over two weeks to go until the first episode, I know that we are all hoping the time will fly by quickly.

Helen McCrory (Polly) said, ‘There was a moment, I remember in the first episode (Series 1), where Cillian leant forward and he had red [in his hand] and he blew it at the horse and I remember that, and I remember thinking I have never seen anything like this before. This is really exciting. But this season, I’ve seen episode 1 and it’s the first time I’ve had that feeling again in the audience.’
