Downton Abbey has been a cultural phenomenon in the United States. More importantly, it has become a cultural phenomenon for women in the United States. As long as Kim Kardashians ratings are on the downfall, I am all for it! Recently, it has come to surface that there was a major chance that Downton Abbey would be finished come season 6 next year. While women still are coming to reel from this, there could be some light at the end of the tunnel.
There has been lots of speculation of Julian Fellowes leaving to the states to start his new upcoming television series, “The Gilded Age.” That being said, it won’t stop women from following their beloved creator and writer so the show already has high hopes. Additionally, although Julian Fellowes stated in an interview that he would be unable to writer two shows, it hasn’t stopped thoughts of the other writers from adding an addition season.
Nothing currently has been written in stone yet and Fellowes might come to shock all his viewers with one last season, season 7. With each additional season added year by year, one can infer that Downton Abbey cannot just be dropped with on season remaining. There are too many unresolved situations occurring at Highclere Castle. That being said, more closely than not, there will be at least one final season and that is season 7!
