Ready for more “Peaky Blinders”? The BBC Two drama, which became popular in the United States on Netflix, has developed quite the fan base – and those fans want Season 3 of the gangster drama.
The last official piece of news came in early October when BBC Two announced that the show began filming Season 3. While the cast had finally returned to set, the network didn’t hint at when the anticipated series would return to the screen.
Devoted followers of the show have been tweeting non-stop about it on Twitter, and the official “Peaky Blinders” page took a moment to respond shortly after Christmas.
“As soon as we have news on air dates, we’ll be sure to let you know,” the page posted. “Watch this space in 2016 #PeakyBlinders.”
While fans still have a couple more days until the new year, the good folks working the Twitter account shared another update for those being impatient.

When Season 3 premieres viewers will be reunited with the Shelby brothers – Tommy (Cillian Murphy), Arthur (Paul Anderson) and John (Joe Cole). As creator Steven Knight previously revealed, the new installment will kick off with Tommy’s wedding – but who is his bride? The Season 2 finale left him torn between two women – his first love, Grace (Annabelle Wallis), who betrayed him but is now pregnant with his child, and May (Charlotte Riley), a beautiful woman who has an in to get Tommy the legal gambling licenses he needs.
“I am genuinely thrilled at the prospect of Season 3,” Knight said in a press release. “I think it will be the best yet. Lots of things familiar but lots of things are new. It’s still a Birmingham story and it always will be. Now it has international consequences. I can’t wait to see it myself.”
“Peaky Blinders” first premiere on BBC Two in the U.K. in September 2013 and on Netflix in the U.S. the following September. Season 2 premiered in October 2014, with it hitting the streaming site the following month.
Star Joe Cole tweeted a photo from the set last week, hinting that the series was still filming.
