FANS of Birmingham-based gangster drama, Peaky Blinders, are celebrating as it was announced that there will be two more series of the show.
Series three of the acclaimed crime saga is currently airing every Thursday on BBC Two.
It stars Irish actor Cillian Murphy and is written by British screenwriter Steven Knight.
Confirming the news, Murphy, who plays lead character Thomas Shelby, said: “Tommy Shelby is one of the most intense, challenging characters I’ve had the opportunity to play.
"I’m particularly grateful that Steven’s original, dynamic writing and the long form series allow me to explore Tommy in depth.
"I very much look forward to Tommy’s evolution over the next two chapters.”
Knight added: “I am genuinely thrilled at the response to the third series of the show. The prospect of writing series four and five is truly exciting.
"This is a real passion project for me and I look forward to telling more stories of the Shelby family.”
The current series, set in the 1920s, sees Shelby clan leader Tommy, embroiled in an international arms deal.
With one dramatic death already this series, viewers will be keen to see who will survive into the upcoming fourth series.
The final episode of series three will air on June 9, while series one and two are currently available to view on Netflix.
