Peaky Blinders stars seen filming for final series as Arthur Shelby actor takes a cigarette break from busy schedule

PEAKY Blinders stars are back at work filming for the final series.

Arthur Shelby actor Paul Anderson was seen having a quick cigarette break from the TV show's busy schedule.

Meanwhile Kate Phillips – who plays Linda Shelby – looked like she was getting blown away by the wind while on set.

Production has started on the sixth and final series as the Shelbys fight for their lives.

The hit BBC drama had to delay filming due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it's now full steam ahead.

And proving they were taking protocols seriously during lockdown, crew were snapped nearby wearing purple fluorescent jacket with 'Covid team' on the back.

Creator and writer Steven Knight said: “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher.

"We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it."

However, Steven teased there would be more from Peaky Blinders despite the show ending, adding: "While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form.”

Executive producer Caryn Mandabach said: “Along with our wonderful, supportive, partners at BBC and Netflix, we have been working diligently to ensure we can get Peaky safely back into production; the safety of our cast and crew is always our priority.

"Thank you to all the Peaky fans who have been so unwaveringly supportive and patient.

"Steve’s scripts are incredible and mark the end of an epic story that has entranced audiences since it first started in 2013, but the world of Peaky Blinders will most definitely live on.”

Alongside the announcement, a picture of Cillian Murphy – who plays Tommy Shelby – was also released and showed him wearing a face mask.
