Deadline said Peaky Blinders completed its 50th day of filming for the new season Thursday. Claflin plays a charismatic politician who approaches Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) with his bold vision for Britain.
Anya Taylor-Joy and Brian Gleeson will also join the cast in Season 5. Claflin said in a statement in October that he was honored to join the show.
Production on the new season beings next month.
"From Steven Knight's writing to the consistently brilliant production, I couldn't feel more privileged to be invited to join this iconic show," he said.
Peaky Blinders stars Murphy, Helen McCrory and Paul Anderson. The series is expected to premiere on the BBC in 2019.
