The sixth and final season of Downton Abbey will come to our TV screens this Autumn.

Fans of the show got excited at the prospect of a film version of the hit drama.

The show's executive producer Gareth Neame, had said that a film version of Downton Abbey was under consideration.

"We are up for doing it, the cast is up for doing it. There are a lot of things to work out. We have the ambition to do it, but no firm plan about it or when it would happen."

But don't get too excited because Julian Fellows, the creator of Downton Abbey, told Deadline that he has mixed feelings about a film adaptation.

"I’m open to the idea of a movie but I’m not anxious to do it. In my experience, and naming no names, the movie of the series is often a disappointment. Normally they’re not very good because the film producer says, “Oh, it’s not going to be anything like the series,” and of course what you want is for it to be exactly like the series. I hope we would avoid that error in doing one, but I do have mixed feelings about it."

So, fans of the show can still hold out hope for more of Maggie Smith and the Crawleys once the series comes to an end, because nobody is ready to say goodbye to Violet Crawley!
