He also confirmed the possibility of spin-offs related to the show, which he has spoken about on previous occasions, telling Birmingham Mail in April: "It will go on in another form, which will be the film, and beyond that we want to keep the world going,
"In other words, the story of Small Heath and the Shelby family will continue on. I want to keep it going until… whenever."
However, speaking to Variety, Steven suggested that he might not be a part of any future spin offs of the series, saying he would "pass on the baton".
Shooting for the Peaky Blinders film will begin in 2022
What is Peaky Blinders about?
Peaky Blinders is set in the 1900s with the first series beginning at the end of the First World War. The show follows the Shelby family, a gangster group led by the ambitious and cunning Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy), as they aim to build an empire.
The crime drama is loosely based on the real-life Peaky Blinders, a notorious Birmingham gang involved in gambling, robbery and violence in the 1890s.
Cillian Murphy stars alongside Paul Anderson who plays as Arthur Shelby, Tom Hardy as Alfie Solomons and Joe Cole as John Shelby. The cast also includes Finn Cole as Michael Gray and Sophie Rundle, who portrays Ada Shelby, and the late Helen McCrory who played Polly Gray before her sad death earlier this year.

Peaky Blinders first aired in 2013 on BBC Two and since then has won multiple awards, including a BAFTA. The show has amassed a legion of fans over the past eight years, all eagerly waiting for the release of the upcoming sixth and final season.
Filming for the new series wrapped in June of this year, so we can hopefully expect the final series to air towards the end of this year.
