The sixth and final season of Downton Abbey premieres on PBS MASTERPIECE!, Sunday, January 3, 2016. The complete season six DVD and Blu-Ray sets, including the Downton Abbey series finale, are available for pre-order at Amazon.com. The new cover art, featuring Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley, graces the top of this article. As pointed out by the observant folks at TV Shows on DVD, it “seems to be for an ‘o-ring’ slipcover, which will go over the plastic disc case.”
In addition to Dockery, Downton Abbey cast members include: Hugh Bonneville, Jessica Brown Findlay, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Kevin Doyle, Siobhan Finneran, Joanne Froggatt, Thomas Howes, Rob James-Collier, Allen Leech, Rose Leslie, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera, Matt Milne, Lesley Nicol, Amy Nutgall, Ed Speleers, Dan Stevens, Penelope Wilton, and the incomparable Maggie Smith.
