Will Tom Hardy return for the final series of Peaky Blinders?

Good news for Tom Hardy fans, he WILL be in the sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders.

When the BBC show revealed their official trailer for series 6, Tom’s character Alfie was shown.

Alfie emerges from the shadows, and Tommy says: “Alfie, I think I may have written your final act.”

WARNING: The Below contains spoilers from Peaky Blinders seasons 2 to 5

Tom Hardy’s Alfie first appeared on Peaky Blinders in season 2 as the leader of the Jewish gang in London.

After forming an alliance with the Peaky Blinders to oust the local Italian gang, Alfie and Tommy developed a friendly rivalry that progresses into betrayal.

Their rivalry appears to culminate in the season 4 finale when Tommy shoots Alfie in the face following another double-cross.

But the season 5 finale revealed that Alfie was alive, but was heavily scarred following the shooting.

Why is Alfie returning to Peaky Blinders?

Fans are speculating there is one big reason that Tommy is seeking Alfie’s help in Peaky Blinders season 6.

They think he is still planning to take on the fascist party leader, Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin).

Fans think, despite their history of betrayals, Alfie is actually the perfect person to help Tommy fight such a powerful enemy.
