Downton Abbey actor Hugh Bonneville has confirmed that there is to be a Christmas Special of Downton Abbey this 2015!
Confirming the news yesterday at the TRIC awards in London, Bonneville said “We’ll do a ninth episode which will come out at Christmas.”
The actor also confirmed that him and his castmates are currently filming the upcoming eight episodes which are due to be shown in Autumn.
Speaking of the new series, the actor said “We’re in 1925, so the series has nudged on another six months, and Lady Rose has been on her honeymoon and she’s now moved to America,”
He continued by saying “Tom Branston has gone to Boston, and some faces that we met towards the end of the fifth season may or may not be coming over the horizon to break or make the hearts of Lady Mary and Lady Edith and people like that.”
With only 288 more sleeps until Christmas, time is flying in and we are excited to see what the residents of Downton Abbey have in store for us this festive season.
