Last week, Universal Pictures announced that beloved PBS television series Downton Abbey will be adapted into a film set for release next year, and fans delighted at the news.
The movie based on the TV show — which ran for six seasons from 2010 to 2015 — is set to be released in North America on Sept. 20, 2019 and exactly one week earlier internationally.
The series follows the lives of the fictional, upper-class Crawley family in early 20th-century England.
This week, several stars from the show — including Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern and Dame Maggie Smith — were seen shooting scenes from the upcoming film in Wiltshire in South West England.
Downton Abbey won several awards, including Emmys and Golden Globes, during its run and broke a record by becoming the most-nominated non-U.S. television series at the Emmys after receiving 69 nominations over the course of five years.
