Peaky Blinders season six has faced significant delays due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The new series is expected to air in 2021 or 2022 and fans are eager to more about the plot and cast of series six. Fans believe Adolf Hitler will feature in season six and Rowan Atkinson is a favourite amongst Peaky fans to play him
Most recently, Atkinson reprised his role as Johnny English in the 2018 film Johnny English Strikes Again but Peaky Blinders fans suspect he will be entering the world of Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) and 1930s Birmingham.
At the end of Peaky Blinders season five, Tommy’s plan to assassinate fascist politician Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) were sabotaged.
The new series will most likely follow Oswald as he seeks revenge and will hopefully see Tommy get to the bottom of who sabotaged his assassination plans.
Sam Claflin portrays Mosley in the series, the leader of the British Union of Fascists in the UK.
The real Mosley was also a friend of Hitler and had met Italy’s fascist dictator, Benito Mussolini.
Hitler was even a guest at Mosley’s second wedding to Diana Mitford in 1936.
The ceremony took place at the home of Third Reich Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. Hitler was a guest of honour at the wedding ceremony.As a result of Mosley and Hitler’s friendship, Peaky fans think Hitler may make an appearance in the new series.
