He was Netflix's own director of fiction, Anthony Byrne, who has shared the sad (but logical) news through their social networks. Furthermore, it has left a powerful message about Coronavirus, the reason that has led to the cancellation of the start of filming.
Along with a most significant image of Cillian Murphy In the role of Tommy Shelby, the director explained that although everything was prepared for the start of production, it is time to stop until further notice: "We were very close to the start of filming season 6. Months of hard work by our very talented, dedicated and hard-working team. Sets were built, costumes were made. Proven cameras and lenses. Places were reserved. All the preparation was made. It is a real shame not to be able to do it right now. But personally I want to thank the crew I have spent months working with and I want to send my love and support to them and to everyone else. We're in this together".
