Apart from romance and love, Gareth Neame, the executive producer of Downton Abbey has confirmed that Season 6 will be high on society drama and intrigue. The showrunners had decided to end the show when it seemed natural and not push the series to continue just because it was enjoying a good viewership.
The show will end with the characters getting their respective closures. The plot is going to be high on drama, but Neame has promised that fans will not be disappointed with the finale that will wrap everything up.
Wrapping up such a popular series while ensuring that the fans are happy, is not an easy task. Downton Abbey was what brought ITV into the international map and the bosses at ITV are aware that they have to continue to match the standards set by Downton Abbey.
ITV plans on following Downton Abbey Season 6 with a series focusing on the early lives of Queen Victoria’s reign. Called Victoria, this eight part series will borrow heavily from history to show the scandals and intrigues she had to overcome to get to the throne.
Downton Abbey series creator Julian Fellowes has thanked the fans for all their support and love. He extended his gratitude to the fans for making the period drama such an acclaimed and award meaning show.
