Get out those handkerchiefs kids…
Downton Abbey is ending.
TVline announced today that, as speculated, season 6 will be the last of the soapy series.
The decision was practical as the casts contracts were up after season six and apparently most of the actors were ready to move on.
Tvline quoted an insider as saying, “You can keep the show going without Matthew and Sybill, but you can’t continue it without the entire Crawley family.”
At least with such a large lead time creator Julian Fellowes can craft a good end to the series.
RIP Downton Abbey
