If there is a series that will be difficult to say goodbye to, that is Peaky Blinders. The production of Steven Knight comes to an end with a sixth season that his showrunner described as “the best of all”, while ensuring that a film about the Shelby family will come. On the other hand, the streaming service premieres the Korean version of La casa de papel and the fourth season of the excellent Borgen.
These are the main series that arrive in June on Netflix:
*BORGEN: KINGDOM, POWER AND GLORY (fourth season)
Adam Price ‘s brilliant creation hit Danish TV no less than 12 years ago and continues to live up to its scathing portrayal of the political sphere . Therefore, the fourth season – to which the Kingdom, power and glory tagline has been added – is one of Netflix’s great bets of the month, a return more than expected. On this occasion, according to what the streaming service has communicated, the production will put the magnifying glass on how “the career of Minister Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is in danger when an oil dispute threatens to become a crisis international”.
In this fourth installment we will meet Nyborg in the role of the new Minister of Foreign Affairs. While she holds this new position, a company discovers oil in Greenland, a fact that marks a pivotal moment and unleashes an international conflict to gain control of the Arctic. Birgitte will try to navigate the situation with her vast experience in tow, while Katrine Fønsmark (Birgitte Hjort Sørensen) returns to the world of journalism at a major national television station. Available from June 2.
*PEAKY BLINDERS (season six)
Another huge fiction arrives on the streaming platform in June, in this case to conclude definitively. It is nothing less than Peaky Blinders, the Steven Knight production that, throughout its six seasons, has unquestionably maintained its quality. The British crime drama says goodbye this month with the Shelbys suffering a “devastating loss”. “The end of the dry law turns Tommy towards the opium business, forcing him to ally himself with his enemies,” Netflix revealed about the path of his fascinating protagonist, Thomas Shelby, played by Cillian Murphy. According to what could be seen in the trailer , the sixth season will begin with a latent threat against the British Parliament .
In this context of uncertainty about the direction of the country and the world in the face of World War II, the Shelbys will see their business threatened and it will be Tommy who must deal with these setbacks. This is how his sister Ada (Sophie Rundle) lets him know: “One of us will not be here for a long time”, she says and thus graphs the black panorama that fiction will show in his departure. “Peaky is back and with a bang. After the forced delay in production due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme danger and the stakes have never been higher. We think this will be the best season ever and we are sure that our amazing fans will love it”, expressed Knight, proud of what has been achieved.
