Britain in 1919 is a tumultuous mix of despair and hedonism, a nation cleaned out by the extravagances of the Great War. Thomas Shelby and his family run the most feared and powerful local gang, the Peaky Blinders. Named for their practice of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps, they make money from illegal betting, protection and the black market.
But Tommy’s ambitions go beyond running the streets, and season 2 sees the Shelby family expand their empire to London and different social circles while maintaining a stronghold in their Birmingham heartland. In season 3 Tommy is coerced into pulling off the heist of a lifetime. Season 4 finds the Shelby family under attack from an organization far more powerful than the Peaky Blinders. At the start of season 5 the world is thrown into turmoil by the Wall Street Crash. Tommy Shelby, now an MP, is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain. He realises that the fate of the nation is now at stake. In season 6, Tommy faces his demons in an epic final showdown.
