The Black Mirror and Baptise actor told the Radio Times: “I think that will come out next February, the beginning of next year.

“There was so much footage, so many episodes, that it does take a while to edit – six months or something.”

Talking about filming the show, Conrad revealed: “Yeah, I finished that a few months ago now.

“That was super enjoyable. It’s quite different to [current show Baptiste] in a sense that it’s more action-based rather than psychological drama, but that was such an amazing experience.”

Talking about working with the cast, Conrad added: “I met a lot of highly esteemed actors.

“It feels like a different world now because I’ve just been at home, working on my uni stuff and reading, so it does feel like a different world.”

Filming was halted back in April its after a crew member received a “false positive” Covid test result.

The crew member took the NHS test as part of safety protocol to work on the BBC show, and had to self-isolate.

The show’s official Twitter account released a statement at the time saying: “After much consideration, and in light of the developing situation concerning Covid-19, the start of production of Peaky Blinders Series 6 has been postponed. 

“Huge thanks to our incredible cast and crew, and to all our amazing fans for their continued support.”

Stephen Graham will also be joining Peaky Blinders for its final series.

He revealed he “had to pinch himself” when working with Cillian Murphy.

“Cillian’s such a wonderful actor, he’s amazing and what a lovely, lovely, lovely fella,” he told Radio X’s Chris Moyles.

“I had to pinch myself a couple of times because I was sat there in a scene with him, doing a rehearsal and stuff and I’ve kinda gone, ‘Ahh that’s Tommy Shelby!’”

Peaky Blinders is available to stream on Netflix.
