'Peaky Blinders': Everything we know from the latest BBC One Drama trailer for season 5
The gang is about to set foot on the Small Heath, and things are going to only get better with the Shelby family. Check the new trailer below
'BBC One' started off 2019 by teasing its fans with a trailer of all the upcoming dramas this year, and from the clips of the fifth season of 'Peaky Blinders', it seems it will be a good year. The trailer includes snippets from the channel's iconic shows, like, 'Killing Eve', 'Line of Duty' and 'Luther', but it is actually the clips from the Steven Knight-created show, that have truly intrigued fans. Starring Cillian Murphy as Thomas Shelby, Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby and Helen McCrory as Polly Grey, the show is set to return with its fifth season this year in Spring.
Along with showing snippets from the show, the trailer actually gave a major hint for what to expect the coming season.
The Shelby clan leader, Thomas, is seen lying distraught with a body cradled in his arms, as he is staring at his burning car. Who is the person in his arms? Is it a family member? Or is it a friend? Fans are equally intrigued to know what is about to happen in season five. The synopsis of the season reads: "Series five finds the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. When Tommy Shelby MP is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realizes that his response will affect not just his family’s future but that of the entire nation."
Fans want to know if someone in the family was killed in the process when Thomas encountered the Glasgow mafia. A fan on Twitter commented, "When BBC trailer gives you a two-second glimpse at season five of 'Peaky Blinders' after months of waiting alongside a gif of Tommy." Another fan agreed, "After seeing #PeakyBlinders in this trailer I took no notice of the other clips! #sorrynotsorry." Although we do not know for sure who is about to die, we do know who will return and that includes almost all of our favorites including, Michael Gray (Finn Cole), Polly Gray (Helen McCrory), Arthur Shelby (Paul Anderson) and Ada Thorne (Sophie Rundle).

Unfortunately, Season 4 already saw Tom Hardy's character, Alfie Solomon, being shot by Thomas, and there are little chances of the character returning. The same can be said for May Carleton, played by Charlotte Riley, who was Thomas' love-interest for a while and later on a trusted friend. Both characters have significantly contributed in the show as Alfie served as a foil to Thomas, whereas May acted as a catalyst. However, there are some amazing additions to the cast which might help fill up the gap. This includes 'Hunger Games' star Sam Claflin and 'Split' actress Anya Taylor-Joy.
