A Movie on the Horizon Lord Julian Fellowes Hints for Downton Abbey Fans?

It seems that upon the loss of UK’s highest watched drama television series after season 6, Julian Fellowes makes a surprising little hint. In a recent interview with Variety, Fellowes apparently stated, “It may be reborn as a movie or a play or a musical or a ballet. Who knows if we’ve seen the last of it? But we do know we’ve seen the last of the television series. This will be the ending.”
 
This leads many to believe, including myself, that Fellowes could be trying to build an empire like Harry Potter with deals of expanding the life of Downton Abbey. It would be very difficult as fans are very particular, but… What seems to be upsetting to viewers though, or at least to this viewer, is that Fellowes is very willing to explain how the show will end. Although it isn’t written in detail, he explains the overall scope of the ending. While I will not share it with you guys, you can very well find it online. But seeing this is the last season, I would make a serious effort to go into this season blind and just enjoy the remaining series and be content with where the cards fall.
 
While the creation of a motion picture or film would make a lot of fans happy (giving them there daily dose of drama), without the same plot lines and characters, the movie would not even come close to what it is now. Nor would viewers even buy a movie ticket. The series is what it is because of the plot and the cast. So anything deviating from this norm really leaves something left to be desired. And Lord Julian Fellowes definitely understands this. He definitely has “mixed feelings” about it.
 
So while viewers and fans are still reeling from the pain of the news heard months ago, there is still something to keep your heads looking up at. Downton Abbey Season 6 finale is set to air sometime in September for the United Kingdom. No real timeline has been set yet, but if we follow the past 5 seasons, we can come to that conclusion. This means the Christmas Special will air in December with the United States air date sometime in January unless some deal is made to air it at the same time.

Season 7 Might Just Be In The Works For Downton Abbey

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!

Julian Fellowes Leaves England and Downton Abbey To Work On “The Gilded Age.”

Downton Abbey has been a towering television drama series from the UK. It’s successes come from an excellent writer and actor/actress relationship bringing the most from what has been given. NBC Entertainment President Robert Greenblatt announced at the Television Critics Association press tour that Julian Fellowes would be headed to New York to start writing the new series, “The Gilded Age.” Early when asked about this he stated that he would only start writing “The Gilded Age” only when Downton Abbey was over. When pressed about the issue, Fellowes stated that the show wasn’t going to go on forever.
 
Even though it hasn’t been completely determined that Downton Abbey will end after season 6, everything is pointing to that being the case.



Downton Abbey to Write Possible Last Season 6

Fans of the hit British television show series Downton Abbey will be sorely pissed as it has come to our attention that the new television series, “The Gilded Age,” will be at the forefront of Julian Fellowes mind. Seeing that Julian Fellowes writes every single episode, without him to keep up the series, it looks like season 6 will be the very end of Downton Abbey.
 
Although we have come to respect and admire Downton Abbey, it shouldn’t be a total loss as “The Gilded Age” will follow the typical plot line. The difference between the storyline is that the show will take place in the late nineteenth century that follows the lives of American millionaires. WoooHoooo, another show that admires the rich!
 
Even though this isn’t a 100% guarantee, it seem like this has become a priority for them and moving “The Gilded Age” forward. It has been looming in the dark for the past two years and I feel that Fellowes is ready to move on.
 



British viewers turn on Downton Storyline!

For those of you in the UK that have been following Downton Abbey verses those of you trying to learn more about what is going on with Downton Abbey, it seems that the storyline and the twists that go with it are setting peoples hearts on fire (and not in a good way).

Julian Fellowes, the creator to Downton Abbey has defended his stances in a very heated development. Recently, after Sundays episodes, 60 complaints were received by the network shocked over the apparent rape of Anna May Bates (Joanne Froggatt) on the show.

There was outrage over the thought that something exciting or shock worthy would effect the show that much. What people don’t realize is that real life situations do occur and things don’t work out merry for people. People cannot hide behind a veil in a world where things like this don’t happen.

Although as I have stated on this blog that I am not a watcher of this show. This has intrigued me and set a fire burning within my chest to start watching this show. I don’t care if I piss people off. As a mini psychologist or at least like to call myself one. It’s important to travel down the roads that most people never want to travel. It’s important to learn and experience the emotional feeling about situations that do occur in real life. So I commend the creator in this respect for taking a chance.

People should look at this shoe with respect and the intentions behind “why” the showing of the rape is important. There is nothing good about a rape unless the assailant is stabbed profusely during it and the victim is victorious in getting her revenge. But we can’t hide behind curtains. So I think people, especially the older viewers should look at this as a learning experience.
