Ahead of the release of the much-anticipated sixth and final season this year, Steven Knight’s popular BBC drama, Peaky Blinders is reportedly planning to start themed pubs, bars and barbershops to honour the legacy of the series.
Peaky Blinders has changed the course of the genre of crime dramas. Revolving around the enigmatic character of Thomas Shelby and chronicling his ambitious escapades, this moody and dark show is based on the notorious Black Country gang who were infamous for stashing dangerous razor blades in their peaked caps.
Although the show is coming to an end, a spin-off film is still on its way.
Starring Cillian Murphy as the iconic Thomas Shelby, the five seasons have shown the brutal and intense gang violence and has promised an equally riveting sixth season via the trailer as the final season will venture into the Second World War timeline.
The production team, aka Caryn Mandabach Productions, want to use the huge success of the show to their advantage by investing in themed establishments besides inspired grooming and clothing lines.
They have reportedly filed for trademarks at the Intellectual property Office for ten years to start these establishment franchises as well as launch official apparel, jewellery and grooming collections.
An unnamed source confirmed, “The [2000 gang of bark workers film] Coyote Ugly spawned bars all over the world and Caryn knows Peaky Blinders could have that same appeal.”
