Good news for 1920s British history buffs, jawline enthusiasts, and, specifically, my mom: The BBC has renewed Peaky Blinders for seasons 4 and 5. Steven Knight, the creator, will write both six-episode seasons. The historical drama stars Cillian Murphy as the head of the Birmingham-based gang, which gets into all sorts of scuffles with the law in interwar England. Also, Tom Hardy popped up in the second season and he looked great. The third season is currently airing in the U.K. It'll make its way to Netflix, which has the exclusive U.S. rights to the series, on May 31.
