To her delight, Murphy revealed his openness to the idea, stating, “I mean, I’m open to the idea. I’ve always thought that if there’s more story to tell.” Robbie, in response, enthusiastically encouraged Murphy, expressing her desire for a spinoff and praising his acting prowess and soothing voice work.
During the interview, Robbie couldn’t resist mentioning Murphy’s “off the grid” nature, suggesting that his limited internet awareness might make him unaware of the internet phenomenon around him, including memes and the “Barbenheimer” phenomenon. Murphy quickly debunked this, noting that he has two teenage boys and is well aware of memes. He humorously acknowledged the existence of memes about him not knowing what a meme is.
As the discussion unfolded, Murphy also shared that he has seen fan art related to the “Barbenheimer” phenomenon, demonstrating his awareness of the internet culture surrounding his work.
The prospect of a “Peaky Blinders” spinoff remains open, and fans can’t help but anticipate the continuation of the beloved series.
