Downton Abbey has captivated audiences with its enchanting characters and stirring storyline since debuting in 2011. The series surrounding the English country estate returns in January for Season 6 – the drama’s final run.
The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning program’s last season opens in 1925. Women’s rights have provided Lady Mary and Lady Edith new positions of responsibility, Tom Branson has left for Boston, and newlyweds Lady Rose and Atticus Aldridge put their luck to the test in Jazz Age New York.
Season 6 has already premiered in the U.K. to positive reviews. The Guardian praises its “Wonderful emotive acting performances,” while Entertainment Weekly claims “Saying goodbye won’t be easy for fans.”
Downton Abbey is the top PBS drama of all time, and the most popular series in MASTERPIECE’s 44-year history. The last season will air Sundays, 9/8c from January 3 to March 6, 2016.
