‘DOWNTON Abbey’ will end for good later this year.
The popular ITV period drama, which features Hugh Bonneville as the Earl of Grantham, is reportedly set to reach its conclusion at the end of the sixth series, with Hugh scheduled to start work on a new project about 19th century New York.
A source explained: “It’s an open secret that ‘Downton’ is ending this year. Some of the actors are keen to let it be known they will be available for work after the summer. Some are interested in the US, where ‘Downton’ is as popular as it is in the UK.”
Some of the show’s biggest stars’ agents are said to have attended last week’s Screen Actors Guild Awards – where ‘Downton’ won the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast – and were busy seeking working for their clients. – BANG!
