After the great protagonist of Peaky BlindersThomas ‘Tommy’ Shelby (Cillian Murphy), shot him in the face at the end of the fourth season, fans of the BBC series (it is broadcast in Spain by Netflix, and season 6 will arrive on June 10) were amazed when Alfie Solomons (Tom Hardy) he unexpectedly returned for the season five finale.

Although at first it was not planned that he would appear more, shortly after it was confirmed that Solomons would return to close the story of the ‘Peaky Blinders’ in the sixth season.

As explained by the creator of the series, Steven Knight, in an interview with ‘Metro’, the 44-year-old actor adores his character Solomons and did not want to miss the final fireworks (although it is true that later there will be a movie that will put the final touch to the story). It was Hardy’s insistence that convinced Knight: “The plan changed, to put it that way, because Tom loves his character.”

And it is that, in addition to ‘Peaky Blinders, Hardy has collaborated with Knight on the miniseries ‘Taboo’ (also about 19th-century London street gangs), and has starred in the film ‘Locke’.


The sixth installment, which has already been broadcast in the United Kingdom, from February 27 to April 3, does not feature the character in its first episodes. He will have to be patient.

Solomons was believed to be dead after Tommy Shelby will shoot him in the fourth seasonbut at the end of the fifth it was confirmed that he was still alive, but with his face disfigured by injuries.

the character of Tom Hardy also appeared in the trailer for the new episodesclearing all the doubts to the fans.

The creator has also declared to ‘RadioTimes’ that his return can simply be defined as “chaos”.

“I think it’s hard to explain without giving things away, but we could find Alfie in a position that isn’t as strong as he normally is. The question is: can he rebuild himself?” Knight posed.

Will Solomons and Shelby do business together again? It will soon be seen.
