The producers of Downton Abbey have announced that season six of the show, which is set to premiere in January 2016, will be the final season of the wonderful series that tell the story of the many trials, tribulations, and joys of the aristocratic Crawley family and all those who come in contact with them on their country estate in Yorkshire, England.
Carnival Films and MASTERPIECE on PBS announced on March 26, 2015, that Season 6 will be the final season of the hit drama series Downton Abbey. Carnival’s Managing Director and Executive Producer of Downton Abbey, Gareth Neame said, “Millions of people around the world have followed the journey of the Crawley family and those who serve them for the last five years. 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…”
