“Peaky Blinders,” which streams on Netflix, will conclude with the drama’s upcoming sixth season. “Peaky is back and with a bang,” says creator-writer Steven Knight. “After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher. The TV series will be coming to an end; the story will continue in another form.”
