The Dowager is back.
And so is the rest of the cast. Focus Features has officially announced the greenlight for the Downton Abbey Movie.
Creator Julian Fellowes has written the screenplay (he wrote every single episode during the popular series’ entire six season run), all original cast members will return (well, those still around at the end of the series, anyway), and Brian Percival will direct (he helmed the original series pilot).
Shooting begins this September. No release date has been announced, but 2019 is probable (and a fall release likely).
