Peaky Blinders' Arthur Shelby actor baffles fans as he promises series six is coming 'very soon' despite second lockdown

PEAKY Blinders' Paul Anderson has baffled fans as he promised series six is coming 'very soon' despite a second lockdown.

Paul plays Arthur Shelby Jr in the hit BBC drama, which had to delay filming its sixth series earlier this year due to the first national lockdown in the UK.

Despite the country now going into another month-long lockdown, Paul told fans the show will return "very soon".

As he shared some artwork of his gangster character on Instagram, he wrote alongside it: "Season six #comingfknsoon. Thanking you all for the wait, it will be worth it."

However, fans could still have a lengthy wait on their hands as it's likely the show won't air until late next year.

Director Anthony Byrne previously explained: "We were so close to the start of filming season six.



"Sets were built, costumes were made. Cameras and lenses tested. Locations were booked. All the prep was done. It's a real shame not to be able to make it for you at this time."

He added to Digital Spy: "In an ideal world it would be great to be prepping again towards the end of the year [2020] with a view to start shooting early next year [2021].

"That feels achievable, whether that's true or not, I have no idea.

"We were due to start filming at the end of March [2020] until the end of July. If we did start shooting in January, we wouldn't finish until May / June and then it's another 6 months of editing."

Back in September, Sam Claflin – who plays fascist leader Oswald Mosley – revealed filming hadn't started yet.

He told Lad Bible: "I have seen scripts and they’re very, very, very juicy. I know they’re keen to get up and running as soon as it’s safe – it’s something I’m very keen to get back to.

“There’s nothing concrete in the diary yet, but I’m chomping at the bit to get back to it because of where we left it and where I know it’s going.”
