Production on series six begun back in January as the show’s official Twitter account posted a snap of Tommy Shelby star Cillian Murphy wearing a mask on set.
Fascist politician Oswald Mosley star Sam Claflin returns for the show’s final bow and they will joined by another new cast member Amber Anderson.
Series five last aired on BBC One back in September 2019 and production on the new series was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Filming was meant to start last spring and then the BBC confirmed in March that production had been postponed.

In the new series, Tommy and Arthur Shelby are set to face off against anti-fascist protesters.
Cillian was looking dapper in a tuxedo, long black coat and a white scarf, while Paul opted for an all-black ensemble.
Despite the glam attire, the location was the scene of an anti-fascist demonstration as the characters were faced by a large crowd of anti ‘Black Shirt’ protesters in the pouring rain.
The crowds protested against fascist leader Oswald Mosley, played by Sam Claflin in the drama.
Series five ended with Tommy’s attempt to assassinate Oswald being rumbled, and the repercussions are clearly going to be seen in series six.
