Since the actors have no idea how Downton Abbey Season 6 will end, it was up to show creator, Julian Fellowes to reveal some spoilers for the fan and he happily obliged. Fellowes said that this season will focus on older characters because they have lives that are more emotional and honest.
Fellows went on to say that in the movies and television series we see the older characters moving into the background once they cross an age threshold, but that won’t be the case in Downton Abbey and it has never been so.
This comment has fuelled a believe that Downton Abbey Season 6 will focus on characters like Lady Violet (Maggie Smith), Lady Isobel (Penelope Wilton) and the romance between Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan) and Mr. Carson (Jim Carter).
There hasn’t been any official release date for the season premiere of Downton Abbey Season 6, but the series always ends their season with a Christmas Day special.
