PBS has announced that the sixth and final season of Downton Abbey will premiere in the United States on Sunday, January 3, 2016.
At the Television Critics Asociation press tour, PBS CEO Paula Kerger said that Downton “has made a big difference for a lot of reasons… There is no question it has been a great gift. It brought a lot of people back to public television. We really tried to take advantage of that…At a time when the financial meltdown was challenging everyone, it gave us a lift.”
What do you think? Will you be tuning in for the final season of Downton Abbey? Are you sorry to see this Masterpiece series go?
