Downton Abbey could make a return to our TV screens with a brand new series

Downton Abbey could be making a return to TV screens with a brand new series.

Downton Abbey originally aired on ITV for six series between 2010 and 2015. Later in 2019 we saw the feature-length film came to cinemas before a sequel which was released in 2022.

Now it’s reported the show could be heading back to TV, with claims a new series could arrive on ITV before the year is out.

Bosses are keen to get creator Julian Fellowes back with stars including Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery and Elizabeth McGovern to revive their roles.

“There is casting taking place, and it would be great if all of the big stars can return, ” a source said, “People loved Downton. It became a British institution and it has been much missed since it left our screens.

“There is huge excitement around this project. It was a Sunday night favourite and got huge viewing figures. There has been very little to compete with it ever since it ended.”

Downton Abbey aired a total of 52 episodes over six series between 2010 and 2015. A full boxset of all episodes is also available on DVD or Blu-Ray here.

The historical drama is set on the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey between 1912 and 1926.

The show follows the Crawley family and their domestic servants as they live through events including the sinking of the Titanic and the First World War. The two films followed directly on from the TV series, set in 1926 and 1927.
