Over the last couple of weeks filming on the sixth and final series of the BBC drama has been underway and it looks like it's certainly not one to miss.

Cillian, 44, looked mysterious as ever as he wondered the smokey streets of the Northern city in his alter-ego's trademark clothing and a huge leather bag in hand.

The star looked well-dressed in a smart three-piece tweed suit, white shirt and black tie.

He completed the look with a flat cap, long black tailored coat and some leather gloves.


During takes Cillian joked around with one of the directors as they took photos on set and he even managed to show him his best angles.

And of course, all of the crew wore face masks to make sure that there was no spread of Covid-19 whilst working.

The recent snaps come after character Arthur Shelby was seen returning to The Garrison with armed gangsters on set.

Actor Paul Anderson – who plays Thomas' brother – was seen filming with his iconic hat and moustache.

And earlier this month the show's director hinted that Tommy Shelby will clash with Adolf Hitler after sharing a creepy new snap of a Berlin nightclub.

Protagonist Cillian was captured standing in an eerie red cell in Germany, wearing his iconic flat cap and staring at a spot on the floor.

Peaky Blinders' official Twitter page, as well as director Anthony Byrne, uploaded the shot and captioned it: "On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man in a dusty black coat with a red right hand."

Followed by: "Tommy goes to Berghain..!"

Berghain is located in Berlin and is one of the world's most famous nightclubs – most famous for its love of techno.

Despite no direct link between the clubbing hotspot and Hitler, the fact that he's in Germany hints that they could cross paths.

But it make sense considering it's one of the appearances that many have predicted for the upcoming series.

One thing we do know is that the final instalment will see the Shelby family fight for their lives.

The coronavirus pandemic halted production, but things got back up and running in January 2021.

After first hitting our screens back in 2013, Peaky Blinders became a huge hit and has managed to produce six seasons.

And although the show is coming to an end, creator and writer Steven Knight has teased we'll be seeing a lot more of the Shelby family in the near future.

He previously said: "While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”

Peaky Blinders seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Netflix now.
