“Downton Abbey” will be airing another Christmas special on Dec. 25, deemed its actual final episode. But fans of the TV show still cannot get enough of it. After six seasons and special episode airings over the holiday, there have been speculations suggesting a mvie could soon follow.
But Gareth Neame, the producer of “Downton Abbey,” confirmed what’s really next for the show after its curtain call. ” We’ve had some conversations about it. Julian and I are keen,” said Neame via Deadline. “There is no script and no firm plan but it’s certainly something there is talk of; we’re not in denial about anything. We’ll know more next year,” he added.
The movie spinoff surfaced a year before “Downton Abbey” confirmed that the six season will be its last. Pending the airing of the Christmas special, the show already concluded the series in the United Kingdom before December. But in the United States, “Downton Abbey” is still set to premiere on PBS by January 2016.
Like the viewers, the people behind the show are also sad and nostalgic about the show’s end. “I think everyone feels mixed emotions. It’s been a huge thing for everyone involved in it. It’s the biggest most successful production I’ve ever made. We all feel very blessed. Nobody regrets ending when we did. We have a final season that’s as strong as the first because we quit while we were ahead — we had the ambition that we had a complete show,” said Neame in the Deadline interview.
