Sad news for loyal Downton Abbey fans, as it’s confirmed the famous period drama will end its long run after the sixth season. According to TV Line, the show will end because most of the cast members’ contract are up and they’re keen to continue with different projects. Despite fans dismay, it’s actually refreshing to see a show bowing out before it’s overdone!
The historical drama, which follows the lives of the Crawley family and their servants, first aired on ITV in September 2010 and has since gone on to win a number of Emmy, Golden Globe and BAFTA awards. The sixth season will likely include eight episodes, plus a Christmas special and should arrive on ITV this September. With the likes of Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern and Laura Carmichael all set to say goodbye to their beloved character; who will you miss the most?
