Peaky Blinders fans have fallen in love with Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) and Grace Burgess (Annabelle Wallis) but will Tommy Shelby’s love Grace Burgess star in new series? Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.
Will Tommy Shelby’s love Grace Burgess star in new series?
At the moment the official cast for Peaky Blinders season six has not been confirmed.
However, fans can expect to see Annabelle Wallis reprise her role as Grace Burgess in the new series, considering the cliffhanger of season five.
At the end of Peaky Blinder season five, a broken Tommy Shelby marched into the fog, following his failed plan to assassinate Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin).
Throughout the series, he had been having visions of his deceased wife Grace.

At the end of Peaky Blinders season five, Tommy could see Grace standing next to her horse in the field.
She said to Tommy: “The works all done Tommy. It’s all done.
“We can walk away from all of this. It’s so easy, it’s so soft. It’s such a small change.”
The series then came to an abrupt end, with Tommy holding a gun to his head and screaming.
Peaky Blinders director Anthony Byrne has confirmed the sixth series will pick up immediately from the season five cliffhanger.
If this is the case, Grace will most likely feature.
Speaking to Digital Spy this summer, Byrne said: “It picks up directly [from season five], the very first image you will see will be back in that field, with a gun to his [Tommy’s] head.”
Byrne added: “I promise it will be worth the wait. It’s given us a chance to go back through the scripts again and really kind of nail it, in a way that…
“I mean these scripts were so, so good, and now having more time you go ‘what about this or what about that’. And you go ‘s**t that’s a good idea.’
If Tommy does not pull the trigger and survives, it is likely he will continue to hallucinate and see Grace, unless he receives some professional help.

Alternatively, if Tommy dies, it is likely viewers will get to see Grace and Tommy reunited.
Sadly, Grace was killed by an Italian assassin by order of Vicente Changretta (Adrien Brody) which was meant for Tommy but she got in the way.
Following her death, Grace has haunted Tommy ever since.
During an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, writer and creator Steven Knight wrote about Grace’s death when a fan asked why he killed off the much-loved character.
He said: “The point with Grace as that if she had lived, Tommy would have been happy. He wasn’t meant to be happy.”
Knight continued: “The intention is to give Tommy Shelby redemption. That will be a happy ending.”
Actor Cillian Murphy has also spoken about Tommy’s relationship with Grace.
Speaking to the BBC, Murphy said: “I think the pre-war Tommy smiled and laughed a lot. He wanted to work with horses, he was very romantic.
“All of these things – you see scratches of them throughout the show and there are times when he feels he is getting towards some sort of healing when he’s with Grace.
“And then it’s taken away again and he retreats back into that kind of shell emotionally.”
