Update: The Peaky Blinders season 6 Netflix release date is confirmed for June 10th, 2022 — much further in the distance from when we estimated. Our original article (with an updated table) follows:
American fans are forced to wait again, currently wondering when Peaky Blinders season 6 comes to Netflix. The BBC, as usual, is getting the first run of the period crime drama starring Cillian Murphy as the tortured Tommy Shelby, who opened the new season holding a gun to his own head. More details about what happened next are in our Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 2 preview.
But, of course, Americans won't be waiting forever. Though to be frank, many are likely jumping the line by watching the series with a VPN service to cut through geo-location restrictions (Tom's Guide's best VPN pick is Express VPN)
All of the American audiences that don't know that trick, or don't want to spend the time learning how VPNs work, though, are waiting for Netflix to get season 6 of Peaky Blinders. So, it's a good time to look at the previous history of Netflix's Peaky Blinders release dates to figure it all out.

When is Peaky Blinders season 6's Netflix date?
Based on the show's history (see below), we think Peaky Blinders season 6 is most likely to arrive on one of three dates. April 8 and 15 are the most likely, as Netflix has a tendency to put big shows up on Fridays, so they can be binged the following weekend.
Those dates are based on season 5's Netflix release, which is the most likely to have set a precedent. The other possible date is April 4, the day after Peaky Blinders concludes in the U.K., as that's how season 4 came out.
Hopefully, Netflix announces this soon, just as they did with the release date for The Adam Project, their big movie starring Ryan Gosling. The other big Netflix return this week is Formula 1: Drive to Survive season 4. Outside of Netflix, Upload season 2 is also arriving this week.
As for the Better Call Saul season 5 Netflix release date? It's been confirmed for two weeks before season 6 debuts.
Peaky Blinders Netflix release date history
Netflix hasn't announced when Peaky Blinders season 6 is coming to the service, but we can get an idea of when it could happen by looking at recent history. For seasons 5 (opens in new tab) and 4, Netflix got the latest series (what they call TV seasons in the UK) in the relatively immediate aftermath of the current season.
Season 5 took 12 days, ending on Sept. 22 and arriving on Oct. 4, while season 4 (opens in new tab) arrived on Dec. 17, the day after the show finished airing.
|Peaky Blinders season||Finale date||Netflix premiere date|
|Season 6||April 3, 2022 (scheduled)||June 10, 2022|
|Season 5||Sept. 22, 2019||Oct. 4, 2019|
|Season 4||Dec. 20, 2017||Dec. 21, 2017|
|Season 3||June 9, 2016||May 31, 2016|
|Season 2||Nov. 6, 2014||Nov. 14, 2014|
|Season 2||Oct. 17, 2013||Sept. 30, 2014|
Season 3 (opens in new tab) debuted on Netflix before it finished in the U.K., something that doesn't feel like it will happen this time, and seasons 1 and 2 seem a little irrelevant to pattern-tracking because of how they arrived in short tandem.
