Even after a year-long hiatus, Peaky Blinders Season 6 never misses any chance to thrill its audience. As it recently comes up with a new behind the scene picture with the Animal Kingdom actor. The expansion in the Peaky Blinders cast hints that the sixth and the final season would be massive and fiery. However, the beloved member has decided to quit the show before its last season. Let’s see who will make their way to the final season.
Peaky Blinders centers on the evolution of Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby from crime lord to the member of the parliament. It follows the exploits of the Shelby family after the end of the First World War. Initially, it focused on Tommy’s control over Birmingham Street. But as the series paced, Tommy’s power expanded internationally. However, the recent season hiked his problems when they entered 1929’s financial crash.

Matt Squire took a picture of James in a nobleman look with a snifter in his hand.
Apart from James, other cast members include The Huntsman: Winter’s War alum Conrad Khan and Amber Anderson. Anya Taylor-Joy as Gina Gray will also return with Brian Gleeson as Jimmy McCavern. Further, Neil Maskell, as Winston Churchill with Sam Claflin as Oswald Mosley, will also join the team.

There’s no doubt that fans favorite Cillian Murphy as Thomas “Tommy” Shelby will return. Helen McCrory as Elizabeth “Polly” Gray will return with Sophie Rundle as Ada Thorne. Paul Andrson as Arthur Shelby will join as well. But, Charlie Murphy won’t be returning to reprise her role. Charlie as Jessie Eden played the real-life unionist leader and has also been Tommy’s, on-and-off lover. But in a recent interview, Charlie said that she’d done now. Though she loved being a part of the show, it felt like she has been in the show for ages. She believes now is the time to take a leave.
