Peaky Blinders director hints Tommy Shelby will clash with Adolf Hitler with creepy new pic of Berlin nightclub

PEAKY Blinders may soon delve into the gritty reality of Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler's reign after a disturbing new image showing Tommy Shelby was revealed.

The BBC series protagonist, played by Cillian Murphy, 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 to Twitter with the telling caption: "On a gathering storm
comes a tall handsome man in a dusty black coat with a red right hand."

Then follows: "Tommy goes to Berghain..!"

Berghain is a nightclub in Berlin and is found near the border between Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain.

It has been designated a cultural institution and often hailed the "world capital of techno" but holds just as much allure for architecture lovers courtesy of its 18metre high ceilings.


Although there is no direct link between ex Nazi Party leader Hitler and the clubbing hotspot, the fact Tommy's character has been spotted filming in Germany drops a huge hint their paths may cross in season six, which has been confirmed as the final instalment.

Additionally, it comes straight after a snap of British Fascist Oswald Mosley, played by Sam Claflin, was revealed by show bosses.

Wearing a crisp navy blue suit and rocking his signature moustache, the MP character looked every bit as dapper as usual.

Mosley proved to be a disruptive force in Westminster in season five and had his eyes set on Tommy as an ally who could secure the Midlands.


Tommy kept up appearances with Mosley, but was secretly plotting to assassinate him during a political rally with the help of a friend, who served as a sniper in the army.

However, somebody betrayed him, as his gunman was taken out before he could deliver the shot, which may well mean Mosley is onto him.

With the leader of Britain's anti-Semitic facist movement having close ties to Hitler – even inviting him to his second wedding – bosses have whet the appetite of fans with regard to Adolf's arrival.

His wedding itself was held at the home of Nazi Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels.


Previously, show bosses confirmed the final Season Six Peaky Blinders instalment will see the Shelby family fight for their lives.

The drama had to delay production due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it was been revealed in January that filming had begun.

Creator and writer Steven Knight said: “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher.

"We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it."

However, Steven teased there would be more from Peaky Blinders despite the show ending, adding: "While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”

A release date is yet to be confirmed by the BBC for the next instalment of Peaky Blinders.

Once the series has aired on the BBC, it will be available on Netflix six months later.
