The historical drama tv series Downton Abbey is back with yet another season. With all its 6 seasons broadcasted, the last one was aired in 2015. Will it have more upcoming seasons?
A Peek into What’s it About?
Depicting a posh family- the Crawleys and their maids, this series gained much popularity among its viewers. Each season narrates about significant incidents that made a mark on the lives of the Crawleys. All 6 seasons of the series had a different event to narrate in different sequences.
From the sinking Titanic to World War-I, from the Spanish Influenza pandemic to the Irish War of Independence. Every event was uniquely crafted into sets of episodes to keep the audience engaged.
The Final season was made on the event when the working class of men rose and the rich British aristocracy declined. The storyline of the series is so intriguing that even after completing 6 seasons, the audience wants more of it. However, the creator has closed the show with its sixth sequel being the final season.
The major protagonist Robert Crawley who had been also the aristocrat of Grantham was well played by Hugh Bonneville. With the character of his wife Cora Crawley, the noblewoman of Grantham, Elizabeth McGovern has done a wonderful job. Their 3 beautiful daughters – Lady Mary, Lady Edith, and Lady Sybil were portrayed very well by respective actresses – Michelle Dockery, Laura Charmichael, and Jessica Brown Findlay.
Other supporting roles of Violet (Robert’s mother), Lady Rosamund (Robert’s sister), and Tom Branson (their driver) are acted out by Maggie Smith, Samantha Bond, and Allen Leech respectively. All the actors have done a great job to pull up the fame.
Any More Upcoming Season?
Officially no declaration has been made regarding releasing any upcoming episodes of Downton Abbey. The 6th season was aired in 2015 and 4 years later a film was published on the same. However, regarding the extension of the television series, there has been no such news.
