Peaky Blinders star Packy Lee says season six of the smash hit show is going to be bigger, better and Brummier than ever before.
But the Belfast actor, who plays lead character Tommy Shelby's right-hand man Johnny Dogs, was tight-lipped on exactly what fans can expect.
"No comment at all," joked Packy, who turned 38 on Monday.
"There's so many things happening I can't even tell my own family.
"It's an emotional, energetic, explosive, crazy continuation of the drama of a family."
Peaky Blinders has become a pop culture phenomenon since the Birmingham-based historical gangster drama first appeared on our screens in 2013.
Shooting on season six of the hit BBC show was due to start in March but was shelved due to the coronavirus crisis.
Despite the delays Packy told Sunday Life how grateful he is to be part of the show, how much he is looking forward to it, and revealed how writer Steven Knight keeps the cast on their toes.
He said: "We have the scripts for season six and have already done a bit of work on the show.
"Everything was basically ready to go and hopefully we're able to get it going again soon, it's a great script.
"Every year, every one of us is wondering where we're going to go next, we're always debating it and every year we're always wrong.
"Steve is always four steps ahead of us in terms of writing, he's talked about it before, he always feels he needs to be on his game because he feels like he is writing it for us as actors.
"I am blessed to be a part of that and I was only meant to be there for a day. Ten years ago in October I went for an audition just to break up a fight. That was it.
"I got the part for one day, happy days, but before I knew it he was asking me to come back and saying he loved writing for me.
"He has continued to do that and I am so grateful to have one of the best writers in TV want to write for me.
"That's what's great about Peakys. He writes for us knowing where we are going and what level we are at which is great."
Packy, who can also been seen in upcoming comedy triller Pixie with Olivia cooke and Alec Baldwin, has been working for BoyleSports bookmakers recently on their Bundesliga coverage and the betting firm has now slashed his odds on winning an Oscar by 2025 from 25/1 to 10/1.
He joked: "I didn't realise those were my odds!" before pricing himself much less generously.
The star continued: "Winning an Oscar is an interesting one because it's one of the biggest awards in the whole entire industry. To be nominated I would place myself at 100/1.
"But something that I am proud of is that I was part of a movie which won an Oscar called The Shore with Conleth Hill. That taught me that no dream is too big, so I'll certainly give my best shot to get there by 2025.
"It's a wonderful piece of drama with a very small cast but what a great movie, you can't get much bigger than that.
"When it comes to short movies it was great to put Northern Ireland on the map, it was great to be a part of that.
"I've already had a hand on the golden nugget once, so there's no reason I can't do it again.
"It really is something I look back on with great pride. If you had told me when I was in school as a young lad that I would be in a short that won an Oscar and a multi-award winning TV series over 10 years I would have laughed at you.
"It's the equivalent of playing top level football at a top level club, it's massive for me and my family and friends.
"It shows everyone there really is no dream too big, especially now in this world we're living in with lockdown and Covid-19 and what's happening around the world with all the racism and anger. No dream is too big."
Packy, who also appeared as Nohorn in Netflix cult fantasy drama The Witcher with Superman star Henry Cavill, has spoken previously about his school teachers laughing at his acting dreams.
He says the memory of mockery is part of what drives him on, adding: "The thing that keeps me going every day is to prove the people who doubted me wrong.
"It's the one thing that keeps me motivated to always try and do better and succeed in this business, to show that sometimes even the smartest people in the room can be wrong.
"Several teachers told me it wasn't a career option and I needed to catch a grip and choose a real job, to be told that as a teenager when your dreams are so vibrant is difficult.
"It's great to look back and say that my beliefs and dreams were bigger. I always knew I was going to do it. I knew the hard work, the dedication, the travel and lonely nights would pay off.
"It's brought me to a different level in my life, Peaky Blinders, The Shore, The Witcher, all of those opportunities. It's a hard job but it's one I love very much."
