The BBC in the United Kingdom has taken a turn in recent years and is now producing some awesome dramas instead of the comedies it’s more recognised with. Sherlock is the most obvious example, but Peaky Blinders is another breakout series that was just commissioned to be its third season.
With the third season officially announced along came another update which mirrors the recent series of Sherlock which results in Netflix USA to get the exclusive and will be only place to watch the latest series when it’s expected to air sometime in 2015.
Cillian Murphy plays the role of a criminal gang member during the 19th century, just after World War 1. Series writer Steven Wright spoke to Variety who said “The story of the ‘Peaky Blinders’ is just beginning and in series three life will become more lucrative, more dangerous and more international,”. Knight also added that you can “Expect births, marriages and deaths and a further expansion of the Shelby Empire.”
Just a few months after Peaky Blinders' first season was released on Netflix US, Season 2 has been made available on Netflix US late last week. It’s a strange trend for the BBC to show it on Netflix first especially considering that BBC America has a prominent and is a popular channel in the USA but nevertheless it’s good for the cable cutters who’s exclusively streaming their content.
