By order of the Peaky Blinders, here’s some behind the scenes photos! Haha, but seriously Paul Anderson – who plays Arthur Shelby on the BBC drama – has revealed some snaps away from the cameras.
Season four of the show came to an end just before Christmas last year, giving us a long wait for news about what’s to come.
So while we still have some time to kill before season five hits our screens, we can now be assured by knowing it’s in the works, and how it’s gonna look.
Now, it may come as no surprise that the attire is essentially the same. Season 5 is not set in 2018, after all.
Still it’s nice to see it ahead of schedule, isn’t it?
What we see is Paul in his 30’s Brummy gangster get-up, disconnected undercut to boot.
An Instagram account for co-star Cillian Murphy, who plays Tommy Shelby in the crime series, recently gave us an insight into the production of the show.

It was announced earlier this year the show would be making the leap from BBC Two all the way to BBC One for season five, as confirmed in a tweet by the broadcaster, which read:
By order of the #PeakyBlinders, we hereby issue @BBCOne with full membership to the Shelby family business! Welcome to the gang!

The director of BBC content, Charlotte Moore, explained the reasoning behind the move.
According to Digital Spy, she said:
Peaky Blinders is world class drama at the top of its game and the time has arrived for it to move to the UK’s biggest channel. Steven Knight’s epic storytelling is authentic and utterly compelling and I want to give it the chance to be enjoyed by an even broader audience on BBC One.
We couldn’t have asked for a better response to series four and the impact it had with young audiences. This move will also give BBC Two more creative headroom to experiment with new drama.
Anyway, you came here to have a look at our Arthur, didn’t you:
As for the cast, SPOILERS AHEAD STOP READING RIGHT NOW we can be pretty confident all the main characters will be making a comeback, meaning we’ll be seeing much more of Murphy (Tommy Shelby), Helen McCrory (Polly Gray), Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby), Sophie Rundle (Ada Thorne) and Finn Cole (Michael Gray).
Joe Cole, who played John Shelby, probably won’t be making an appearance in the show, due to his unfortunate demise in season four.
Bring on season five, though. It’s sure to be a cracker.
