The main cast is set to return.
It’s happening! The Downton Abbey movie is officially a go!
The original cast (including Maggie Smith, our fave Dowager Countess) is set to return for the big-screen feature. According to TVLine, the movie was written by series creator Julian Fellowes and will be directed by Brian Percival, who directed the series’ very first episode.
