Peaky Blinders season four proved a huge hit as the drama intensified and left viewers with an explosive finale episode, with Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) even being elected as an MP for Birmingham South.
The series ended with the Shelby family finally confronting mob boss Luca Changretta (Adrien Brody), with the fifth follow-up expected to focus on Tommy’s worsening mental health when the drama returns to BBC One in the summer of 2019.
Paul Anderson’s Arthur Shelby will also gain political connections in season five - could they use their newfound power to further manipulate their surroundings?
BBC Drama released its trailer for 2019 earlier today and teased a few upcoming scenes from the new series.

The video revealed some first-look footage previewing some of the BBC’s content for the next 12 months.
The BBC’s trailer teased Whitehall in the new series, where he will become a politician with a vision to change Britain forever.
However, in one split-second clip, it appeared Tommy could have being laying flat-out alongside a co-star after his car had been blown up.
Could Tommy have been killed off? Surely the BBC wouldn’t tease such a monumental scene?
Just moments later, in what appears to be the same scene with fire flickering to the side from the burning car, Tommy is clutching what appears to be the dead friend or family member that was laying beside him.
Has Tommy survived the explosion but lost a close relative or colleague in a targeted attack?
Based on official set photographs released by the BBC, it looks as though Finn Shelby (Harry Kirton) is the explosion victim.
