Comments Off on DOWNTON ABBEY Producer on the Show’s End and a Potential Movie

DOWNTON ABBEY is getting ready to say goodbye.

The ITV/PBS series will launch its final season on January 3, 2016 — just two days after the show is honored with a float at the Rose Parade.

And though fans may be lamenting the upcoming end of the series, the show has lasted longer than anyone planned.

“Well, I have to say it was actually rather than it been curtailed, it was extended,” DOWNTON ABBEY star Hugh Bonneville shared during the show’s Television Critics Association panel. “We were all expecting to finish after [season] 5. And it was [creator] Julian [Fellowes] who said to us that he felt…it would be a bit truncated trying to bring it into land over in that fifth series, and so he asked if we’d he wanted to do another nine episodes to make the stories all land in a more appropriate way.”

Comments Off on It’s Official: DOWNTON ABBEY Ending with Season 6

DOWNTON ABBEY season 6 will be its last season, the producers officially confirmed.

“Millions people around the world have followed the journey of the Crawley family and those who serve them for the last five years,” executive producer Gareth Neame said in a statement. “Inevitably there comes a time when all shows should end and ‘Downton’ is no exception. We wanted to close the doors of ‘Downton Abbey’ when it felt right and natural for the storylines to come together and when the show was still being enjoyed so much by its fans. We can promise a final season full of all the usual drama and intrigue, but with the added excitement of discovering how and where they all end up…”

“PBS and our member stations have been so proud to be the home of ‘Downton Abbey’ on MASTERPIECE in the United States,” said Paula Kerger, President and CEO, PBS. “We, like the fans, simply cannot wait to see what will happen to the Crawley family and their beloved staff as this incredible series culminates in Season 6. The series has enjoyed such success over the past five seasons and we’ll certainly be working alongside Carnival, MASTERPIECE and PBS member stations to make Season 6 the biggest yet. Until then, Sunday nights on PBS continue to offer fans a full slate of ‘must view’ British and, soon, American historical drama.”
