Peaky Blinders fans were ecstatic to hear filming for the sixth series of the award-winning gangster drama had begun at the beginning of the year. For the past few months, filming has been underway in Lancashire. However, fans were worried about when season six would air after production was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, in a new interview, actor Conrad Khan, who will be joining the series as a new character, has shed new light on when the show will return to the BBC.
Filming for the sixth and final series was originally scheduled to begin in early 2020 but as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, production was postponed.
As a result, fans have been waiting for more than one year for the sixth series to arrive.
In an interview with Radio Times, Newcomer Conrad, began: “That comes out, from what I last heard. I mean, these things change so quickly – I think that will come out next February, the beginning of next year.
“There was so much footage, so many episodes, that it does take a while to edit – six months or something.”
The actor, best known for playing young Eric in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, didn’t give much away about what character he is playing, but teased it was “super enjoyable”.
He added: “I met a lot of highly esteemed actors. It feels like a different world now because I’ve just been at home, working on my uni stuff and reading, so it does feel like a different world.”
Conrad isn’t the only new face fans can expect to see in the upcoming series, as Line of Duty star Stephen Graham will also be making an appearance.
Earlier this year, the actor was spotted filming alongside Tommy Shelby star Cillian Murphy.
Peaky Blinders’ official Twitter page since confirmed the news by posting an image of Stephen on set.
They captioned the snap: “We’re thrilled that @StephenGraham73 has joined the cast of #PeakyBlinders series 6.”
The Line of Duty star also shared the same photo, as he replied: “Thanks for having me.”
It is unclear what character Stephen is playing, but fans seem to think he could be playing Al Capone.

Peaky Blinders has followed gangster Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) and the rest of the Shelby family during the early years of the 20th century.
Season five concluded with Tommy running into an empty field where he thinks Grace (Annabelle Wallis) and a black horse are waiting for him.
Viewers can see her say to him: “The work’s all done, Tommy. It’s all done.
“We can walk away from all of this. It’s so easy and so soft. Such a small change.”
The last viewers see is Tommy holding a gun to his head and screaming, leaving fans to question whether he will pull the trigger.
Ever since Grace’s death, Tommy has struggled to cope with his grief, and her memory often clouds what he is thinking.
During season six, Grace will also be back to haunt Tommy once more.
The actress who plays Grace also teased with her Twitter followers that she has “unfinished business”.
Peaky Blinders is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
