As he prepares to say goodbye to Peaky Blinders – whose sixth and final season is expected for June 10 on Netflix – Steven Knight presents his new project. Entitled Rogue Heroes, the six-episode series looks back at the creation of the Special Air Service (SAS), a special forces unit in the British army.

It was CANAL+ which won the exclusivity for an as yet undated broadcast. Following this announcement, made official this Wednesday, April 6 at the CANNESERIES festival, the channel unveiled a short 30-second teaser to arouse expectations among Peaky Blinders fans, but not only.

The program, adapted from the eponymous novel by Ben Macintyre published in 2016, follows the footsteps of an eccentric officer named David Stirling. Hospitalized after a training exercise gone wrong, he hatches a drastic plan that goes against all the accepted rules of modern warfare. He fights for permission to recruit the toughest, boldest, and brightest soldiers for a small secret unit that will wreak havoc behind enemy lines.

The images present a historic and ambitious series, on par with the author’s previous projects. On screen, we find Connor Swindells (Sex Education), Jack O’Connell (Skins, Money Monster), Alfie Allen (Game Of Thrones) and Dominic West (TheWire, The Crown).
