Peaky Blinders season 6 has released an official first look at Stephen Graham’s mystery new character.
Donning a pinstripe period costume, the Liverpudlian star (known for stints in Line of Duty and Boardwalk Empire) looks like he means serious business in the shot uploaded to Instagram today (April 29).
“We’re thrilled that Stephen Graham has joined the cast of #PeakyBlinders series 6,” read the official page’s caption, as many fans weighed in with reactions underneath.
“This season [is] gonna be lit,” shared one user, before more commented: “One of my favourite actors!!! Can’t wait”, “criminally underrated as an actor. Hopefully he’s playing Al Capone (played him in Boardwalk Empire and was brilliant)” and “Now I’m even more gassed [fire emoji] Favourite actor incoming!”
As previously confirmed by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, Graham won’t be reprising his gangster role from the aforementioned HBO drama.
“I didn’t want to go West,” Knight said back in 2019. “Because it’s a minefield once you go into Chicago gangsters. I refer to him last series, but I didn’t want to go into that.”
