The season five premier was going down in Birmingham last night and creator Steven Knight was collared and asked about what was going down in this series and also his plans for the future. Here’s what he had to say about it, as well as dropping some hints for what we can expect in the upcoming season:
The new series will be set in the aftermath of the Wall Street crash where opportunity and misfortune are everywhere. When Tommy Shelby MP (Cillian Murphy) is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family’s future but that of the entire nation.
The fact that Tommy is now an MP for South Birmingham means that he has to retain his contacts with the people of Birmingham. We all kno w that he has many motives, but what I’m trying to do over the long game is to rehabilitate him.It’s a very precious thing and we’re keeping it going for another two series.
