A well-deserved retirement for Tommy Shelby

Why do you have to watch it? Because all good things come to an end in this world. The iconic British series Peaky Blinders draws thus, at the end of this sixth and final season, his bow. Plagued by his own ghosts, which have become numerous over the years, the leader of the Shelby clan works with characteristic vehemence to thwart each of the obstacles that screenwriter Steven Knight skillfully puts in his way.

Brilliantly executed conclusion coupled with a heartbreaking tribute to the actress Helen McCrory, who died in April 2021 from cancer, this new burst of episodes multiplies with renewed ardor, machinations, conspiracies, and other political maneuvers. And if it is possible to blame the series its half-hearted endingwhich did not necessarily give the viewer the feeling of a definitive closure, the start of construction scheduled for 2023 of a feature film should itself pave the end of the Peaky Blinders’ road.
