All good things must come to an end and it looks like Downton Abbey is no exception. The UK historical drama is ending with the upcoming sixth season reports TVLine. The series airs on PBS here in the US.
Word is that many of the castmembers’ contracts are due to expire at the end of season six and they are ready to move on. Earlier this month, actress Maggie Smith teased that the series would be ending, saying, “I can’t see how it could go on… I mean, I certainly can’t keep going. To my knowledge, I must be 110 by now. We’re into the late 1920s.”
According to insiders, “You can keep the show going without Matthew and Sybill, but you can’t continue it without the entire Crawley family,” an insider notes.”
What do you think? Are you sorry that Downton Abbey is coming to an end or, is the time right? Would you have watched a seventh season without some members of the cast?
