There’s a chance that Downton Abbey: A New Era isn’t the end of the Downton universe.
Could the cast of Downton Abbey return for a third movie? Never say never.
“Honestly, I thought the fifth was the last series,” creator Julian Fellowes told Town & Country. “Then I thought the sixth was the end of them. Then I thought the first movie was the goodbye. Who knows?”
The Downton Abbey creator continued, “If there’s a big demand and everyone wants them back, I suppose I certainly wouldn’t say no, because I’ve long since come to terms with the fact that, when I die, Downton will be the main item in any article about me going. So I might as well continue the ride for as long as it goes. But I don’t know. I think it’s an audience decision, really.”
The cast, too, agrees it’s up to the audience. “I never say never because I’m an internal optimist,” Lesley Nicol, who plays Mrs. Patmore, told Town & Country. I have nothing to back this up, but I wouldn’t be talking out of turn if I didn’t say I’m sure the cast would be very happy to do more.”
Nicol continued, “This is the real world, and we have to see if people will come out to the movie theaters and see this film. They did last time, but I just don’t know because the world has changed.”
Joanne Froggart, who portrays Anna Bates, agrees with Nicols, telling Digital Spy, “I think if Julian still wants to write it and the audience still want to watch it, I think we’d all be very keen.” Elizabeth McGovern, who portrays Cora Crawley, also said: “I always say I’ll read the script.”
For James Collier, who plays Downton’s butler Barrow, he doesn’t care if the audience watches or not: he wants a third movie. “I’d definitely be up for it! Even if nobody watched this one, we’d say ‘sod you lot, we’re making a third one anyway!'” Collier told Yahoo. He would still be interested in a Downton threequel, even though his character left Downton at the end of the second film to travel with Guy Dexter (Dominic West).

We’ll update this story as soon as we learn more. Downton Abbey: A New Era is in theaters now.
