What will the movie Peaky Blinders be about?

The Peaky Blinders movie will surely continue to be based on the political conditions of the time. A film set before, during the outbreak, and during World War II can be an interesting premise for showrunners to explore.
The show has already explored the context of different historical narratives, such as the aftermath of World War I, the Great Depression, and the rise of fascism in the 1930s with the blackshirts of Oswald Mosley and Adolf Hitler.
The show’s creator, Steven Knight, originally revealed that he planned to create a seventh series of the show, but series six has since been confirmed as the last. A Peaky Blinders movie, which Knight hopes will bring back Tommy and Arthur Shelby, will be made instead.
Knight told Empire that the end of the sixth series feature was where the film would begin and confirmed that the episode was a “dry run” for a movie.
He said: “I see this sixth series as the end of the beginning.
“It’s also the end of the empire: we enter the Second World War and at the end of it, there is no longer really an empire. War.”
The series ended with Tommy realizing he had been tricked into thinking he was dying after it was revealed his doctor was present at fascist Mosley’s wedding to Diana Mitford.
A reborn Tommy then spared the life of his former doctor, before walking away from his burning trailer to what should be the setting for the new film.
