The filming for the 6th and final season of Peaky Blinders continues after the production was called to a halt due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Lead actor Cilllian Murphy who plays Thomas Shelby has been spotted complete with his signature sharp suit and overcoat as he filmed scenes in Manchester.

The Irish actor was also seen with newcomer actress Amber Anderson, who was dressed in a period costume with a tweed jacket and green sweater.

There is yet to be any information regarding Amber’s character, although she could be set for a big introduction in the upcoming final season.

Peaky Blinders director Anthony Byrne informed Digital Spy of the new female character.

“There’s a great female character who is new, who is pretty dark,’ he told them. β€˜I haven’t seen a character like her in Peaky before. I won’t say who she is, but she certainly gives Tommy a run for his money.”

29-year-old Amber is known for her roles in Emma, The Riot Club, and Black Mirror.

Of course, for the cast and crew of Peaky Blinders, filming hasn’t been done without the many problems they’ve faced. The bosses of the series recently came under fire over potential β€˜Covid-19 breaches’ after a crew member had a false positive test.

A representative for the show said: “In line with protocol, this person took an NHS test and anyone who came into contact with them self-isolated – the safety of our team on Peaky Blinders is of paramount importance.”

Back in January, it was announced that Peaky Blinders would come to an end after the sixth series. Creator and writer Steven Knight said the story would still continue but in β€˜another form’ and later teased at a film.

Exciting things coming for all Peaky Blinders fans. With all the teasing by the cast, we certainly can’t wait for the airing of the new season!
