Matt Barber, Atticus Aldridge, and Peter Egan will also return in the episode, where the residents of the house will ring in 1926 with a New Year’s Eve celebration.
Get ready to say goodbye.
Masterpiece has released a sniffle-worthy teaser for the farewell run of Downton Abbey – which includes a passionate kiss from Mr. Bates and a meta-moment from Mary, saying, “It has been such a long road, can it really be the end of it?”
And then it’s time for a toast and more exquisite costumes!
Saying goodbye to Downton Abbey won’t be easy for fans (and it didn’t seem easy for the cast, either). But the period drama is preparing to enter into its sixth and final season, and PBS has released a new trailer with a sneak peek into what our characters will be up to when the series returns.
You often hear about particular celebrities being fans of a show or hot musician. But those fans are seldom regal.
Brace yourselves, Downton fans. ITV dropped the first trailer for the sixth and final season of Downton Abbey Saturday and announced that the season will premiere in the U.K. Sept. 20.
Together again: Matthew Crawley and Lady Mary Crawley finally reunited when Downton Abbey was honored with a Special Award by BAFTA on Tuesday.
The event celebrated the beloved series’ worldwide success with cast and crew including the above-pictured Dan Stevens and Michelle Dockery in attendance as well as Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt, and many others.
The cast and crew of Downton Abbey have been capturing their emotional last days on set as they prepare to say farewell to the series. Michelle Dockery a.k.a. Lady Mary Crawley shared her own goodbye via Instagram on Monday, with a little help from Oliver and Zac Barker, who together play the role of Dockery’s onscreen son, George.
Season 5 of Downton Abbey was, in many ways, about female independence.
Mary (Michelle Dockery) made the romantic decisions that were right for her, even though they were controversial for the time; Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) pursued her interest in art history, and stood up to her husband, Robert (Hugh Bonneville), when he didn’t trust her with the flirtatious Simon Bricker (Richard E. Grant); and Rose (Lily James), who is Anglican, married a Jewish man, Atticus (Matt Barber), despite the oppositions of her mother—and much of society.
