Peaky Blinders spoilers follow.
Peaky Blinders has gifted fans of the show a fresh teaser ahead of the hotly-anticipated new season.
In the short clip posted on social media, viewers get to have an extended look at Stephen Graham in a still-undisclosed role.
The Liverpudlian actor, known for his roles in Line of Duty and Boardwalk Empire, has joined the cast for this final season — and it looks like it won’t be in a friendly capacity.

“I hear there are some men here from Birmingham looking for me,” Graham’s character says in the video.
Sporting a pinstripe period costume, the man is later seen in a different outfit as he has an audience with Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy).
Graham’s accent on this one confirms, as it has previously been announced, that his stint in Peaky Blinders will have nothing to do with his previous role as gangster Al Capone on Boardwalk Empire.
Creator Stephen Knight shut down the possibility of having Al in The BBC show in 2019.
“I didn’t want to go west. 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,” Knight said speaking to the Obsessed With… Peaky Blinders podcast.
The upcoming season of Peaky Blinders was anticipated by another teaser earlier this month, hinting at things going awry for Tommy and the rest of his gang.
The clip contains a stark warning for Murphy’s character, courtesy of his sister and political advisor Ada (Gentleman Jack’s Sophie Rundle).
“Take a good look, Tom,” she says in the clip. “Cos one of us isn’t gonna be here for long.”
While an official release date hasn’t been confirmed yet, could this, too, be a hint at a major clash with Graham’s character?
