Meanwhile, the Downton film has been rescheduled for March 2022, after the original release date was announced for Christmas 2021. Jim Carter, who plays Carson, has already opened up about the film during an appearance on This Morning, saying: “If you promise not to tell anyone, I’ll let you know that we’ve seen a script… The script for a second film is there. We’ve seen it, it’s very funny!”

We're all bingewatching Downton on Netflix now, right?

Producer Gareth Neame opened up about the challenges of filming, telling the Hollywood Reporter: “It is a huge comfort to think that better times are ahead and that next Christmas we will be re-united with the much beloved characters of Downton Abbey. We’re working on what the story is, and when we might be able to make it. But it's the same as the first time around: We have to try to get everyone back together again. And that was very challenging.”
