The series finale of “Downton Abbey” aired on Christmas Day on ITV, and earlier this year for American viewers on PBS. While we do think that it had an ending that was appropriate given the show’s subject matter and its characters, at the same exact time there has certainly been talk of there being a feature film at some point down the road.
So could it happen? Even though she’s probably been asked the question a million times over the past several months, it’s still something that star Michelle Dockery was happy to discuss further to the Telegraph:
“I think there is potential for a film … That is something I would wholeheartedly consider, so we will see. It may not be over yet.”
Both creator Julian Fellowes and executive producer Gareth Neame have each said previously that they would be all for making a feature film, so we presume that one of the larger challenges would merely be getting the key players all together. Given they all have different projects now, there could be a challenge in syncing up the schedules. For example, Dockery has a new drama series on this fall entitled “Good Behavior,” where she is going to be playing a con artist. Meanwhile, many other actors have taken on various film and stage roles.
If there ever is anything further to report on this subject, rest assured that we’ll have the scoop for you here! Maybe this is something that could happen a couple of years down the road, when everyone is ready and eager to explore this world further.
