'I've heard very bad, bad, bad things about you Birmingham people'
A premiere date for Peaky Blinders season 4 has just been released by the BBC.
The hit 1920s gangster drama starring Cillian ‘the eyes’ Murphy, Helen McCrory, Joe Cole and Paul Anderson is set to return to BBC Two on 15th November at 9pm. Also joining the cast for Peaky Blinders season 4 will be The Pianist star Adrien Brody and Aidan Gillen.
Cillian Murphy, who plays Peaky Blinders gang leader Tommy Shelby, was in Birmingham on Monday night for the premiere of season 4. He told The Independent, ‘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 BBC teaser for the show also promised that the action would be brought back to Birmingham. ‘As the enemy closes in, Shelby flees his country house and returns to the streets of Small Heath, Birmingham where a fight for survival begins.’
It has also been announced that the Weinstein Company logo will be removed from the Peaky Blinders season 4 credits, in light of the growing sexual assault allegations brought against its former co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein.
