The Crawleys know just what you want for Christmas this year: a Downton Abbey sequel.
On Monday, Focus Features announced that Downton Abbey 2 will waltz into theaters on December 22, 2021. The film will once more reunite the principal cast of the beloved BBC series and also add new cast members Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye, and The Crown’s reported future Prince Charles, Dominic West.
The follow-up to the 2019 Downton Abbey film will feature a script from Oscar-winning Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and will be directed by Simon Curtis. Emmy-winning producers Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge have returned to produce the film, which reportedly began production last week.
