What are the Speculations About Downton Abbey Season 7?
Unfortunately, this historical drama is not to be seen as of now. The last season, i.e., 6, was seen back in 2015, and since then, there haven’t been any updates about the revival of the subsequent season. The previous installments gained a mixed bunch of reviews from the critics, where some loved the show for its outstanding portrayal of the Royal British family and its characters while some did not praise its sympathy towards the 20th-century aristocrats.
But fans are of believing that season 7 should be created in order to progress the story well. Towards the end of the sixth season, major cliffhangers about what happened with Crawley Family left the audience wanting more episodes. From what happened to the family after the harsh outcomes, did Lord Merton fight his terminal illness to Carson after he retired? The list is endless, so there are unanswered questions that fans need clarification on.
What do We Know So Far about Downton Abbey Season 7?
Although the series did not come up with new seasons, it did with the spin-off! In 2019, a film named Downton Abbey got released with many actors from the show reprising their roles and which received a great response from both fans and critics and went on to become a box office success.
Consequently, the makers are now set to release the sequel in the franchise that has been named Downton Abbey: A New Era, which will again see various old faces along with some new additions like Laura Haddock, Hugh Dancy, Dominic West, and Nathalie Baye. It is set to grace the theatres on March 18, 2022.
What can be Expected from Season 7 of Downton Abbey?
Since we now know that season 7 is a highly unlikely occurrence, but if we were to expect what the seventh season should have been, it should have shown WWII and its impact on the royal family. But since the 2019 movie did already cover it, then season seven would primarily focus on the historical events just like its predecessors. Also, the fate of the Crawley family after its downfall could be expected to be seen in the subsequent season.
What do We Know About the Release of Season 7 of Downton Abbey?
It has now become certain that the show’s seventh season is not to be expected in the near future. The fact is further strengthened because the TV series is now being made to the movie whose sequel is set to release next year, making the occurrence of a series highly unlikely. Since the season 6 termination back in 2016, the creators shared no official information about season 7, and instead, a movie was released in 2019, scrapping off any hopes for the next season.
So, let’s enjoy the movie that will be making its presence in the coming time and keep the series in our good memories. If you haven’t watched the series or the movie, then you can head to Netflix to do so!
