WATCH: The First Official Trailer For Peaky Blinders, Season Five

*David Beckham and David Bowie not included.

Tommy Shelby's back and bad as ever. 

Like most events associated with the Peaky Blinders, the first full trailer for the show's fifth season was an explosive one. 

The teaser, which was posted to BBC One's Twitter, shows the Birmingham gangsters in all their glory, as they arrive in London in support of head of the family, Thomas Shelby in taking up his new post in Westminster as an MP.

This part of the story will be set in the aftermath of the 1929 stock-market crash, opportunity and misfortune everywhere.

The Plot 

No spoilers, don't worry.

After a calm intro with Tommy narrating: "There is God, and then there are the Peaky Blinders. We own the ropes who's going to hang us now?", the usual gunfire, explosions and actions ensue.

Bar one big casualty (RIP John), Tommy and co emerged from the gang war in season 4 largely unscathed, so you can expect to see most of the familiar faces, as well as some new ones too. 

Sam Claflin joins the cast to provide some tough political opposition as leader of the British Union of fascists, Oswald Mosley - who, from looks of things, isn't about to make the Shelby family's rise to the top smooth sailing.

Our own Charleen McKenna and Brian Gleeson will too star in the new season, their characters though are yet to be named.

More Peaky Blinders 

One big change this year is that when the fifth series does arrive it'll be airing on BBC One rather than BBC2.

With season 5 rumoured to air at the end of the summer, BBC has confirmed this won't be the last we'll see of the Shelby cohort, with creator Steven Knight currently working on the sixth and seventh series. 

The seventh season might just ring the death knell for the Brummie gangsters though, as Knight spoke of his plans to wrap the gritty show around WW II. 

"My ambition is to make it a story of a family between two wars, so always I've wanted to end it with the first air-raid siren in Birmingham in 1939. It'll take three more series [to reach that point]," he explained. 

Plenty of time for the Shelby's to get in more trouble then.
