spellotape394This brings me so much joy 😁😁

Downton Abbey, which follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family, announced that the sixth season would be it’s last, much to fans dismay. The final season aired in 2015.

It’s been three years since the Crawley family has been seen and when the movie version was announced over the summer, fans rejoiced. The plot of the movie has not been revealed, but we do know that the entire original cast will be returning for the film.
