Will there be more series in the future?
Creator Steven Knight previously teased his plans for the show to continue for another three series.

The showrunner is keen to take the story up to the beginning of World War Two in 1939, and he is up for bringing the programme to the big screen. 

He said: "My ambition is to make it a story of a family between two wars, so I always wanted to end it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham 1939. Three more series. 

We're getting approached to all kinds of things. The ballet, the musical, and a movie would be great. I wouldn't want to do it at the very end, maybe in between two of the series."

Is there a trailer for Series 5?
Yes, and it looks amazing! With over 3 million YouTube views, it's safe to say people are VERY excited about the new season of Peaky Blinders.
