'Downton Abbey' Season 6 News Update: Julian Fellowes Hints at a Possible Musical or Ballet Version
"Downton Abbey" may be filming its last season but creator Julian Fellowes is definitely not finished with his characters.
As he mentioned before, Fellows has a considered a film version of "Downton Abbey" as it could potentially fit in the rest of the plot. However, the creator is also open to a musical version or even a ballet.
In an interview with Variety he said, "It may be reborn as a movie or a play or a musical or a ballet. Who knows if we've seen the last of it? But we do know we've seen the last of the television series. This will be the ending."
The finale was announced a few months ago and filming is currently taking place in the U.K. It is one of the most anticipated finales on TV, but U.S. audiences will have to wait until next year to see the last season. Meanwhile, U.K. audiences will be seeing it at the end of the year.
Fellowes finds this annoying as he said in the interview. "If it was left to me, I would show them on the same day [in both countries]. The BBC with 'Doctor Who' showed that was possible. The possibility of spoilers in the eight hours' difference is obviously considerably less than three months' difference. I think it's hard for people to resist the spoilers, and I wish they didn't have to."
"Downton Abbey" has been running since 2010 and has gone on to win EMMY awards as well as Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards. The show is among the most acclaimed beloved on TV and it is currently available on Amazon Prime.
It stars Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Maggie Smith, Penelope Wilton, Jessica Brown Findlay, Lily James and Dan Stevens. The new season is set to air in 2016 on PBS.
