Downton Abbey Confirmed To Be Ending?

It was expected, but now it seems set – this year’s sixth season of “Downton Abbey” is set to be the show’s last.

TV Line claims cast contracts expire after the sixth season and, with the exception of just one or two actors, the cast is ready to move on

Their source says: “You can keep the show going without Matthew and Sybill, but you can’t continue it without the entire Crawley family.” The news comes just weeks after Maggie Smith suggested the end was near for the series.
