(Pocket-lint) - Peaky Blinders is soon to reach its crescendo, with series 6 confirmed to be the last. Yep, Steven Knight's incredible West Midlands' crime thriller is set to end in 2022 - on television at least.

So, when will you be able to watch it? What should you expect? And, are there any trailers? We reveal all.

Peaky Blinders series 6 release date

We don't yet have a release date for the sixth series of Peaky Blinders. The first full trailer aired in the UK on 1 January 2022  but didn't reveal when the first episode will be available.

Rumours are that it will be "early February 2022". Hopefully, we don't have too long to wait before the Beeb confirms this.

How to watch Peaky Blinders season 6

Like the last season, series 6 will air on BBC One in the UK (previous series first aired on BBC Two).

For US viewers, it is likely to hit Netflix in the States a few weeks after it finishes airing in the UK. That means it will most probably be available around spring time.

You shouldn't expect it to arrive on Netflix UK until late 2022 at the earliest, but it will be available on BBC iPlayer from its first TV broadcast.

Peaky Blinders season 6 plot and rumours

It is highly likely that series 6 will continue to detail Tommy Shelby's mission to take down fascist leader Oswald Mosley.

Show creator Steven Knight has promised fireworks, that's for sure.

Sadly, with the untimely death of actress Helen McCrory before filming resumed we might not see the fruition of Polly's own storyline. Hopefully though, her absence in the sixth series will be explained in a respectful and appropriate manner.

According to a small teaser video posted by the Peaky Blinders S6 Twitter feed, Tom Hardy's Alfie Solomons will have a big part to play this series.
