Hit TV show Downton Abbey is to end later this year after six series, according to a new report.
The period drama, which was first broadcast in 2010, will reportedly draw to a close so creator/writer Julian Fellowes can work on a new project, and the stars of the show, including Michelle Dockery and Hugh Bonneville, have been seen holding meetings for future work.
A source tells Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper, “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 U.S., where Downton is as popular as it is in the U.K.
“Joanne Froggatt, Edith (Laura) Carmichael and Allen Leech were in Los Angeles for the awards last week and there were several meetings about both TV and film roles.”
