Chilling new clip released rom 'Peaky Blinders' season 5
Fans of the hit BBC gangster series Peaky Blinders have been pretty eager to witness the return of Tommy Shelby and his gang, especially when last season ended with the gang leader making a foray into politics. The new season is due to be released on BBC One on 25 August 2019, but now fans have managed to get a tantalising glimpse at a scene from the fifth season
Check out the disturbing clip from Peaky Blinders season five:
In a new three-minute clip released on Twitter, Tommy, armed with a machine gun, approaches a scarecrow on a desolate field wearing the signature Crombie overcoat and peaked cap of his gang. Tommy then uncovers a note beside the display which reads: "Look down on earth and see the seeds you have sown."
Then Tommy soon notices that someone has left a landmine nearby, only for his son Charlie to call him from afar alerting him to a phone call he’s received. What does this mean? Is something going to happen to Tommy's son? We'll have to wait to find out.
Commenting on the upcoming season in a recent interview with The Metro, actress Helen McCrory claimed that things are due to get pretty gory and violent, stating: "I've only seen episode one, and there's a whole bit… We saw the screening in Birmingham, for fans who managed to get lottery tickets. I look away from the screen, I, as Helen, can't watch it. I think it's disgusting, gratuitous violence, and it should be".
She added: "I think it's much more disturbing than somebody slashes somebody's face or somebody shoots somebody and it's all just the end of it. It is not a natural state of affairs. And anybody who looks at the violence of Peaky Blinders and thinks: 'That exactly is what I want to do'. I mean, sick."
Check out the trailer for season five of Peaky Blinders:
Meanwhile, creator Steven Knight recently revealed that season five will delve deeper into the criminal-turned-MP's psychology, stating: "Tommy blurs the line between the respect a godfather would have on his home turf with that of an MP, so he’s sort of doubly enfranchised and doubly powerful. In other seasons, he’s always faced a nemesis, and in this one, he has some powerful enemies, but the biggest one is himself."
Returning cast members for season five other than Cillian Murphy and Helen McCrory include Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby, Sophie Rundle as Ada Thorne, Kate Phillips as Arthur's wife Linda Shelby and Benjamin Zephaniah as Jeremiah Jesus. Finn Cole also returns as Michael Gray.
