Peaky Blinders on Netflix

Here we have news on two very different series coming from Netflix. First: the streaming service has picked up rights to the BBC series Peaky Blinders, which adds Tom Hardy to its second season roster this fall. We hadn’t known when we’d see the new season in the States, so it’s great to know that we can soon see Peaky Blinders on Netflix.

And then the company has also picked up rights to the ’80s kids property Popples, which will be developed as an animated series. More info on both is below. Read More »
