The feature film that will continue the story of the hit drama series “Downton Abbey” will be released in North American theaters on Sept. 20, 2019, according to media reports.
International audiences will get to see the movie a little earlier, on Sept. 13, 2019.
The film from Focus Features is expected to include much of the original cast, including Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery and Maggie Smith.
The original TV series, airing in the U.S. on PBS’s “Masterpiece” series, wrapped in 2015 after six seasons that saw the show win 15 Emmys.
Julian Fellowes, who created “Downton Abbey,” wrote the screenplay for the movie and is producing along with Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge. Filming started earlier this month.
