Peaky Blinders and the movies you should see if you are the Shelbys

The rumors are true Peaky blinders, one of the best British series of recent years, will have a film that, apparently, is going to be the last we will see of the clan Shelby and his “adventures” in London’s criminal underworld.

The series began in 2014, with Cillian Murphy as the leader of a gang from 1900 England, and little by little it has become one of the most iconic and loved by fans, thanks in part to the style and perfect haircuts of the protagonists, but also because it is a a story that has a bit of everything, is inspired by real gangs, has drama, romance, betrayals and even mystery, all connected through the members of a chaotic and dangerous family.

The series is about to premiere its season 6 and after that it will be the movie that helps close the story. Steven Knight, the director, said that in the future we could have more series related to the world of Peaky blinders (take that, Game of Thrones), so it’s not necessarily the last we’re going to hear from the Shelbys and potential projects could move back and forth to see what happened before or after the times of Thomas and Arthur, and all his “associates”.

In addition to the movie of Peaky blinders, Hollywood loves a good criminal and gang story, so there are plenty of movies that fans of the series (everyone) can watch while waiting for the new, or when they miss the criminal clan.
