The BBC have released the first trailer for new drama 'SAS: Rogue Heroes'.

Created by Birmingham born screenwriter Steven Knight, whose much loved crime drama Peaky Blinders concludes on BBC One tonight at 9pm, SAS Rogue Heroes is adapted from Ben Macintyre's book of the same name and tells how the SAS were formed in North Africa during the Second World War.  

The series stars Game of Thrones' Alfie Allen, Skins' Jack O'Connell, Sex Education star Connor Swindells, and Appropriate Adult actor Dominic West.

Via statement, Steven Knight said of the programme: 'It has been a privilege to work on a project which tells the story of a renegade band of soldiers who used wit and imagination as much as firepower to halt the march of Fascism across North Africa during the darkest days of World War Two.  

'This is a war story like no other, told in a way that is at once inspired by the facts and true to the spirit of this legendary brigade of misfits and adventurers.'

Producer Karen Wilson added: 'With filming now complete, we're incredibly excited to give the world a first look at our Rogue Heroes.'

Sounds pretty good, right? Watch the trailer below!

Rumours abound about the future of Peaky Blinders, with several spin-offs from the main series and a feature film muted.

In January Knight told the Mail Online, 'I think of this sixth series as the end of the beginning.'

'SAS: Rogue Heroes' will on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in 2022.
