Lady Downer of Debbington
Sadly, and as speculated, it seems that the next season of Downton Abbey will be the last...
NBCUniversal-owned Carnival Films, the producer of Downton Abbey, today announced that Season 6 will be the final season of the worldwide hit TV drama.
“With this show we always try to get our timing right. Our feeling is that it’s good to quit while you’re ahead. We feel the show is in really strong shape…The show is so popular globally but the danger with this sort of thing is to let it go on forever. It’s very addictive to want to do that.”
Neame seemed to dodge queries about a Downton Abbey spinoff, but said both he and Fellowes like the idea of a Downton movie, as has been speculated, but maintained nothing had been done on that front.
I have enjoyed this show from the beginning and would love to see an additional movie, once the series ends.
However, I must agree with the Dowager Countess above...I do not approve of this decision.
Now, if you'll excuse me...I think I need to go upstairs and change my hat.
