Peaky Blinders season 2 came to its rollocking conclusion on Thursday night (December 6, 2014) affectively cementing its status as one of the most original, hard-hitting dramas on television. We need only to delve into previous comments made by creator Steven Knight to realise that the BBC probably has big plans for this.

Speaking at the BAFTA's 2014 Screenwriter Lectures earlier this year, Knight - who's currently writing the World War Z sequel - said he had already plotted a series finale for Peaky Blinders.

Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has revealed that he knows how he wants the BBC series to end.

"I'm not joking: I've got an ending where [Cillian Murphy's character] is Sir Thomas Shelby, and it's the start of the Second World War," he said. "The first siren goes off and that's it. What I'm trying to do with the whole thing is look at someone from his background: Can he get out and escape?"

"You can make somebody bad for a long time, and people love it when they then do one good thing and it's almost like a triumph. Actors seem to enjoy it more," he added.

Blinders landed at the BBC largely unannounced, though the Birmingham-based epic gangland tale soon began garnering attention and even Tom Hardy was lured for its second outing, to play Camden gang-master Alfie Solomons.

Praised for its stylish cinematography and stand-out performances from Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory and Hardy, the show has received rave reviews for both seasons and a third seems to be a no-brainer.
