Cillian Murphy continues shooting new scenes for Peaky Blinders season 6 in snowy Scotland after production resumed amid Covid delays

Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy was seen back on location for another day’s filming on Tuesday.

The sixth season continues to film following delays amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Cillian, 44, was back at Portsoy harbour in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, in the role of Thomas Shelby.

The BBC drama has been running for eight years and has enjoyed huge popularity but the sixth season has been confirmed as the final one, with Cillian back in his flat-cap as he shot the snow-tainted sequence on the docks.

He cut his usual sombre stance as he strolled along carrying a satchel, a black dog strolling alongside him.

Wrapped up against the wintry chill, Cillian added a suit, tie, and overcoat to his look, but rehearsed in added layers as he wore a massive waterproof over the rest of his costume.

Despite the freezing temperature and the snowy remnants, it was an otherwise bright day, with the sun beaming down on the chilly harbour.

Crew were mostly all wearing masks and the BBC has said that the production complies with the latest restrictions.

Peaky Blinders tell the story of a family set in 1900s England, centering on a gang who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps, led by their fierce boss Shelby. 

The show is expected to return ‘in another form’ after filming draws to a close on its sixth and final series. 

Show writer and creator Stephen Knight believes it can be extended, possibly as a feature length spin-off.

Speaking to LADbible at the Peaky Blinders Festival in Birmingham in 2019, he said: ‘I would [consider doing a film].

‘The end scene is the end of this as a television series the way it is now, but it’s certainly not ruling out spin offs or a movie.

‘So I think there’s something about Peaky where it’s a world, lots of people have different interpretations of that world, so I’m all for keeping the spirit going.’

Director Anthony Byrne, who previously worked on series five and will contribute to the sixth, also insisted the show could work as a big-screen theatrical production.

He said: ‘I think a film 100 percent could work, but I’d rather watch six hours than two. Simple as that. You can go deeper into characters and spend more time in their world I think.’

In a statement, Knight said: ‘Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher.

‘We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it. While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.’

Meanwhile, Executive Producer for the BBC Tommy Bulfin said of the show: ‘We are very excited that filming for Peaky Blinders has begun and so grateful to everyone for all their hard work to make it happen.

‘Steve’s scripts for series six are truly remarkable and provide a fitting send-off which we are sure will delight fans.’
