New Peaky Blinders trailer hints at explosive season ahead

CILLIAN MURPHY is back in business as Tommy Shelby in the explosive new trailer for the upcoming fifth season of Peaky Blinders.

The Irish actor is on top form in the first glimpse at the new series, strutting his stuff in a field with a glint in his eye and a machine gun in hand.

Piano chords can be heard as Murphy’s Shelby confidently declares: "There's God, and there are the Peaky Blinders."

"We own the ropes - who's gonna hang us now, eh?"

"No-one is gonna hang you Tommy - you're gonna hang yourself," his sister Ada, played by Sophie Rundle, can be heard replying rather ominously.

The new series is shaping up nicely with Tommy set to leave his gangster lifestyle behind for a career in a far shadier sub-section of society: The Houses of Parliament.

MP for South Birmingham, Shelby soon finds himself out of his comfort zone and dealing with an altogether different kind of adversary.

This one comes direct from the pages of real-life history in the form of Oswald Mosley, the infamous leader of the British Union of Fascists being played by Sam Claflin.

"Mr Shelby, you've come to my attention," Claflin's Mosley declares "England lives tonight and marches on."

The collage of chaos ensues, with the trailer throwing up plenty of hints as to what could be to come for Tommy and Co.

There are explosions, handguns and the sight of Murphy’s character shooting a man on a crucifix. Religious symbolism or something far more sinister?

You’ll have to wait and see.

"Death is a kindness,” Shelby warns in the trailer’s final seconds – could this be the end of the Peaky Blinders?
