Downton Abbey is not over yet.
Focus Features announced Monday that Dowton Abbey 2 had officially been ordered. The movie, a sequel to the 2019 movie, which was itself a sequel to the beloved 2011-16 series, will release during the Christmas 2021 period.
"We're thrilled to announce that Julian Fellowes and the entire Downton cast are back for #DowntonAbbey2, with Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye, and Dominic West joining! See the film in theaters this Christmas," reads the social media post from Focus Features.
It was inevitable there would be some new cast members, but it's also nice to know the entire cast will also be back for more drama. Dancy, Haddock, Baye, and West are all well-known actors, so it will be fun to see how they fit into the narrative.
The cast of the original movie included Hugh Bonneville, Jim Carter, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Maggie Smith, Imelda Staunton, and Penelope Wilton.
