After debuting on Netflix, season 6 of Peaky Blinders has become a true phenomenon. The conclusion of Tommy Shelby’s plot surpassed even the “reign” of the new episodes of Stranger Things, guaranteeing the gold medal in the Top 10 of the platform. Anyone who has marathoned the ending wants to know: what to watch next?
Starring Cillian Murphy, Peaky Blinders is definitely one of the BBC’s most popular productions. After the original premiere, the final episodes took about 2 months to reach the Brazilian Netflix catalog.
“A notorious gang in 1919 England is led by the ruthless Tommy Shelby, a criminal willing to make it big at any cost,” states the official synopsis for Peaky Blinders.
With the ending of Peaky Blinders, fans don’t need to be “orphaned”. We’ve listed the 7 best series to watch next on Netflix below.
Vikings (and Vikings: Valhalla)
If you enjoy the historical feel of Peaky Blinders, Vikings is the perfect series to watch next. With 6 seasons on Netflix, the epic production follows the saga of Ragnar Lothbrok, one of the most important characters in Nordic history (and mythology).
The derivative Vikings: Valhalla is also worth watching. A Netflix original production, the series is set a century after the original production. The cast of Vikings includes actors such as Travis Fimmel (Raised By Wolves), Katheryn Winnick (Big Sky) and Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games).
Created by Tony Tost, Damnation is a crime series set in an interesting historical period. The story of production takes place during the Great Depression, one of the most troubled times in the world economy. Originally released in 2017, Damnation has a season on Netflix.
In Damnation, Killian Scott (Ripper Street) plays Seth Davenport, a man with a violent past who pretends to be a minister to incite farmers to go on strike in a rural community. In addition to Scott, Damnation’s cast includes Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus) and Sarah Jones (For All Mankind).
The Chronicles of Frankenstein
Set in Victorian England, the mystery series The Chronicles of Frankenstein is a guarantee of suspense on Netflix. Originally launched in 2015, the British production has 2 seasons on the platform. The series is very successful by mixing real elements with fictional stories.
The Frankenstein Chronicles follows the story of Inspector John Marlott, a detective who pursues a mysterious murderer through the streets of London. However, the case takes a much scarier direction than the expert could have imagined. The cast of the series is led by Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings).
The story of Traidores takes place shortly after the conclusion of World War II. In the series, Emma Appleton (The Witcher) plays Feef Symonds, a young Englishwoman who agrees to help a mysterious American agent prevent Russian influences from entering the British parliament.
Even unintentionally, Feef ends up involved in a web of lies, conspiracies and many mysteries. In addition to Emma Appleton, the cast of Traitors includes Luke Treadaway (Clash of the Titans), Danny Sapani (Black Panther) and Jamie Buckley (The Last Kingdom). The series has only 1 season.
With 3 seasons on Netflix, Frontier is perfect for a post-Peaky Blinders marathon. Set in the 18th century, the series stars Jason Momoa (Aquaman) as Declan Harp, a fur trader who does everything to break the hegemony of the Hudson Bay Company.
In its 18 episodes, Frontier shows how ruthless hunters and influential businessmen fought for local control of the fur trade. In addition to Jason Momoa, the series features Landon Liboiron (Hemlock Grove), Alun Armstrong (The Legend of the Headless Horseman) and Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey) in the cast.
With one season on Netflix, Thieves of the Forest mixes action and adventure in an electrifying plot. The Belgian series tells the story of Jan de Lichte, a charismatic thief who leads the downtrodden in a revolt against the corrupt aristocracy of Flanders in the 18th century.
Due to its theme, the production is compared to Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, a historical film that is also very successful on Netflix. The cast of Thieves of the Forest is made up entirely of actors from Belgium, such as Matteo Simoni, Stef Aerts, Charlotte Timmers and Anemone Valcke.
Nothing better than ending the list with a series starring Tom Hardy, Alfie Solomons from Peaky Blinders. In Taboo, Hardy plays James Keziah Delaney, an adventurer who, after being presumed dead, returns to London to avenge his father’s terrible death.
In the midst of British society, Delaney encounters powerful enemies and does business with influential merchants. The series only has 1 season on Netflix. Along with Tom Hardy, Taboo’s cast includes Leo Bill (The White Queen), Jessie Buckley (The Lost Daughter) and Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones).
