Peaky Blinders Season 7 to begin shooting in 2024
Despite some delays, Knight is making progress, and he hinted that filming for the movie might start very soon, aiming for the middle of 2024. Steven told the Radio Times, “I’m just working on the final bits of it at the moment. I just sit down at the keyboard and start. It’s a bit like having a dream, for me. You sit there and all this stuff comes, and then you read it back and think, ‘That’s pretty good – but where did it come from?’ He added, “The plan is to start shooting that in the middle of next year.”
This news comes after the conclusion of the six-season run of the British gangster series, which has gained a dedicated fanbase since its 2013 premiere, particularly on Netflix.
