Is there a Peaky Blinders season six trailer?

The trailer was released on New Year's Day and opens with Tommy Shelby emerging from the mist blasting a machine gun.

It also showcases the growing influence of Nazism as we grow closer to the Second World War which began in 1939.

Reflecting on the series Cillian Murphy told Rolling Stone: ‘I think it's going to be very intense. The word we keep using is 'gothic',' adding, ‘Yeah, it's going to be heavy!’

What will happen in season six?

Season six picks up directly where we left off in season five, which saw Tommy with a gun pointed to his head.

It will introduce Gina's influential family, the American socialite was featured in season five after marrying Michael and returning with him to Birmingham.

It will also include a new character played by Stephen Graham, who is known for his role as Al Capone in HBO's Boardwalk Empire.

Whilst most of season six remains a mystery, what we do know, is that it is the final in the series and will hopefully provide some long awaited answers about what happens to the Shelby clan.
