Pour a proper pint, it's time to take another trip to the West Midlands. Even those in the U.S. can see the latest exploits of these Birmingham baddies, though, with our guide for how to watch Peaky Blinders live online — and Episode 3 is about to start in mere minutes!

Season 5 returned to the airwaves after nearly 2 years off and dropped us in the middle of the Wall Street crash (which feels a little too on the nose for the moment), while Tommy Shelby building his MP career. It even gave us two new episodes on back to back nights. This week, we're not as lucky, but — hey — no need to binge a whole show at once.


By the time you're reading this, Episode 3 of Peaky Blinders Season 5 will beg airing, as it starts at 9 p.m. BST (4 p.m. Eastern/1 p.m. Pacific). Subsequent episodes will also air at this time.

Fortunately, it's pretty easy to watch Peaky Blinders online every week, consuming the whole season as it debuts. And depending where you are, you can even watch the first two episodes to catch up.
