The highly anticipated third season of Peaky Blinders just kicked off in the UK, but it turns out that fans in the US won’t have to wait very long to see the continuing saga of the Shelby clan for themselves.

Season 3 of the 1920s gangster drama will arrive on Netflix on Tuesday, May 31 and will be comprised of six episodes. The popular streaming service already hosts Seasons 1 and 2.

Cillian Murphy is back as mob boss Tommy Shelby, along with Helen McCrory as Aunt Polly Shelby, Tom Hardy as rival gangland leader Alfie Solomons, Sophie Rundle as Ada Shelby, Paul Anderson as Arthur Shelby and more. Paddy Considine also joins the cast for the show’s third season, as Tommy’s new nemesis Father Hughes.

Season 3 opens on Tommy’s wedding day – who he’s marrying is a mystery, it could be anyone from Grace to May to a total stranger – and he’s a very wealthy man now thanks to his thriving criminal enterprise. However, as the Roaring Twenties take off, Tommy is caught up in an international arms deal that could alter more than a bet or horse race but the fate of the recovering Western world.

So, you know. No pressure.

Is anyone else completely obsessed with Peaky Blinders? Just before Season 2 dropped I wrote about why everyone should give this show a try, and how really well put together and surprising it is. All of that is still true, but mostly, you should watch it for McCrory’s amazing Aunt Polly, who is probably one of the greatest female characters on TV right now. #TeamShelby
