The historical drama movie Downtown Abbey 2 is now pushed to March 18, 2022. Simon Curtis will helm this sequel to Downtown Abbey, which was released in 2019. Jullian Fellowes is writing the script for this much-anticipated sequel again, and Gareth Neame is also back on the production team. Neame had teased in 2019 at the premiere of Downtown Abbey that they are planning for a sequel to happen, which to much excitement of the fans, is now turning to reality.
The posh life of the Crawley’s and their household drama in the TV series and the following movie had intrigued the viewers, and the Crawley family are all set to return in this film sequel. Here’s what you need to know about it.
When will Downtown Abbey 2 be Release?
Production partner Focus Features released its first behind-the-scenes picture of Downtown Abbey 2 on its Twitter account. Filming is currently underway, which was initiated on April 12, and the movie is slated to release on March 18, 2022. Filming is expected to wrap up by August this year. Downtown Abbey 2 was initially scheduled to open in theatres on December 22, 2021. However, in recent updates, it was revealed that Focus Features had shifted it to Spring next year.
In its tv serialized version, Downtown Abbey had run from six seasons from 2010 to 2015 and was picked up for a movie in 2019, which earned $31 million in the domestic theatres within the opening weekend.
Who is in the Cast of Downtown Abbey 2?
The cast from the previous movie is coming back with several new additions. Hence, the leading cast members are reprising their roles. It includes Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham. In addition, Jim Carter will resume his role as Mr. Carson, Michelle Dockery will play Lady Mary Talbot, and Cora Crawley by Elizabeth McGovern. Maggie Smith as Violet Crawley, Imelda Staunton as Maud Bagshaw, and Penelope Wilton as Isobel Merton are also returning. The new additions to the cast members include Nathalie Baye, Dominic West, Laura Haddock, and Hugh Dancy in undisclosed roles.
What will happen in Downtown Abbey 2?
As of now, the plot details for the upcoming movie Downtown Abbey 2 are entirely under wraps. The previous film in the franchise had an air of finality, and the plot ending sets up very little for the sequel. One cannot guess what course of drama the coming movie will take. In the first movie, the Crawley family were busy preparing for a visit from the king and queen. They had welcomed King George V and Queen Mary in their Yorkshire country house, and the movie has plenty of pageantry along the way.
Is a Trailer for Downtown Abbey 2 Available?
The filming for Downtown Abbey 2 is going on, and as of yet, there is no trailer available. However, Focus Features revealed a photo that shows the film’s clapper that has a blurred background. The scene is from the dining table of the estate.
While the upcoming sequel is still a few months away, you can get back at the tv series and watch the first movie. In addition, you can buy Downtown Abbey on DVD, digital, and Blu-ray. The coming sequel will open up in theatres in Spring next year.
