ITV bosses confirmed the news earlier, revealing that after the Christmas special we will be getting a sixth series.

“We have had an amazing reaction to the story lines, acting and production values of Downton Abbey this year and the whole team is thrilled to be moving ahead with a new season of the show,” Downton producer Gareth Neame said.

“This will provide audiences with a fresh opportunity to see what will befall our much loved characters.”

The director of drama for the channel added that no one knows what Julian Fellowes, who created the period drama, has in store but we’re guessing it’s GOT to have something to do with Bates, Anna and the horrible, now deceased, Green.

We just have a feeling this storyline will not be resolved on Sunday.

“It is fantastic that Downton continues to be such a phenomenon - still the most popular drama on ITV in its fifth series - and we are thrilled to have commissioned a sixth series.

“We don't know yet what Julian [Fellowes, creator] has planned, but we are looking forward to working with him, the fantastic cast and Carnival again and have no doubt series six will be unmissable.”

We cannot WAIT.

This gives us a reason to be joyous beyond the December special which features George Clooney...
