At the end of season 6, the finale wraps up the storyline with Tommy handing over his role in the family crime business after tying up loose ends to Ada (played by Sophie Rundle) and leaving for the wilderness. The fans were sad to see the iconic and dramatic end to an equally iconic and dramatic series. What did drive the nail to the coffin to mark an end for the series was the confirmation from Steven Knight that it won’t be followed by a seventh season, much to the widespread disappointment for the fans.  

The main reason for this decision was quoted as, “The original intention was to do seven series, but COVID has stolen a year from us, and we felt what would be a great idea is to, almost in place of that seventh series, is to go onto the big screen.” This, coupled with the tragic death of the iconic actress Helen McCrory who plays Aunt Polly, one of the main characters in the series has resulted in the decision of the end of Peaky Blinders with season six and not seven.
