First look at Oscar winner Adrien Brody in Peaky Blinders series 4 trailer

BBC’s hit Brummie crime show returns to television later this year and the new trailer teases a darker trip to the Midlands for the Shelby family than we saw in series three.

Oscar winner Adrien Brody and Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen join series four of Peaky Blinders alongside returning lead actor Cillian Murphy as Tommy Shelby, the head of the fictional 20th century Birmingham gangsters.

This series will pick up six months after where the last left off, with most of the Peaky Blinders arrested. Tommy returns to Small Heath after being threatened with the “danger of annihilation” and must smooth over his differences with Jewish gang leader Alfie (Tom Hardy) to deal with the new problem.

The fourth series will also once again reunite writer Steven Knight with Tom Hardy after their historical period drama Taboo earlier this year.

Unusually for the BBC, the drama was broadcast on Saturday evenings and received a high pick-up rate on iPlayer, in the UK, and in the US. A second series has already been commissioned by the BBC.

No specific release date has yet been announced for series four of Peaky Blinders, although it is due to air this Autumn.
