Downton Abbey Special Confirmed for Christmas 2015

We know, Christmas talk already! But we absolutely had to share the news that this Christmas there will be a special episode of Downton Abbey.

Downton Abbey recently picked up the ‘Drama programme of the year’ award at the TRIC Awards and actor Hugh Bonneville confirmed that the upcoming sixth series, due to be screened in Autumn will have a Christmas special and he couldn’t help but tease fans about it all!


“We’re in 1925, so the series has nudged on another six months, and Lady Rose has been on her honeymoon and she’s now moved to America,” he said.

“Tom Branston has gone to Boston, and some faces that we met towards the end of the fifth season may or may not be coming over the horizon to break or make the hearts of Lady Mary and Lady Edith and people like that.”

When asked about the possibility of a Christmas special, he teased,

“We will. We’ll do a ninth episode which will come out at Christmas.”

With the cast currently filming the sixth series of Downton Abbey, watch this space for more news!
