Peaky Blinders fans are in for a lot of surprises.
With Dunkirk hitting cinemas this week, Peaky Blinders fans will get a chance to see two of their most beloved actors again on the big screen, Cillian Murphy (Tommy Shelby) and Tom Hardy (Alfie Solomons).
In a previous interview, Murphy stated that Season 4 of the beloved show will be a return to the show’s roots, “In the classic gangster arc, the last season was sort of all about the wealth, the house and all that material stuff. This season is sort of a return to the roots. That’s about as much as I can reveal.”
The Irish actor was recently asked by ODE, about the upcoming season and he stated that, “I think Season 4 will be the best it has been. I’m very excited about it, we just wrapped last week and I think people will be in for a lot of surprises,” said Murphy.
There’s new additions to the cast as Oscar winner Adrien Brody and Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen join the show.
Very few details are known about their characters, but in an interview with Vanity Fair, Gillen provided a small teaser by saying he’s playing “A guy who shows up, is called in to help solve a problem, if you like.”
Steven Knight, creator of the show, provided a bit more information on these new characters in an interview with The Metro.
He said: “Adrien plays the threat to the family and possibly the biggest they’ll face. Aidan is a sort of, in the face of danger it’s like pressing the nuclear button – you get him to help. Let me put it that way. We have been very fortunate to get two really legendary actors. We get a lot of actors who want to be part of [Peaky] which is great but we try not to make it a ‘spot the star’ sentiment, and just get actors who are really perfect for the role.”
Regarding the Season 3 cliffhanger and Tommy’s quest for revenge, Knight was fairly cryptic. “Tommy’s redemption might take a little bit longer. It’s the family being forced back together,” he said.
The show wrapped last week and we can’t wait to see it back.
