Fans have been waiting for the show to return after series five ended on a cliffhanger in 2019.
Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy), leader of the Peaky Blinders, was last seen pointing a gun at his head after he had visions of his late wife Grace (Annabelle Wallis).
Viewers were left on the edge of their seats, not knowing whether the trigger was pulled.
Here is everything you need to know about season six of Peaky Blinders:
When will the new series air?
The exact release date for the upcoming season is yet to be revealed but Peaky Blinders fans can expect the next instalment early this year.

The official Peaky Blinders Twitter, @ThePeakyBlinder, announced that there is 'one last deal to be done' for the gang-inspired drama.
The trailer begins with Thomas Shelby blasting a machine gun as the camera pans to Arthur Shelby (played by Paul Anderson) who has been attacked in his bed.
The trailer shows that there will be an impending threat of Nazism as the show moves closer to the beginning of the Second World War.
The cast of the show have remained tight-lipped on what’s going to happen in the series but Cillian Murphy recently told Rolling Stone: ‘’I think it's going to be very intense. The word we keep using is 'gothic',’

Tommy is set to go up against fascist politician Oswald Mosley (played by Sam Claflin) once again in season six after he failed to assassinate him in season five.
