Downton Abbey fans are going to be pretty pleased

It looks like we’re getting another Downton Abbey movie. After rumours of another TV series spread in 2023, insiders have since confirmed that the cast of the beloved period drama is working on a third film.

We were hopeful the show was returning to our TV screens but another movie was a more logical approach.

Their cast’s demanding schedules and conflicting calendars undoubtedly made it difficult to film a show, but all is not lost.

The third film is going to be pretty impressive with Oscar-nominee Paul Giamatti joining the cast of the third movie.

According to The Sun, the actor will reportedly return as Harold Levinson.

“Downton fans will recognise Paul from the last time he starred in Downton Abbey in the 2013 TV series, playing Harold Levinson, the brother of the Countess of Grantham.

“But getting him back is still something of a coup for the creative team because since then his career has seen him become even more in demand.

“That’s only going to increase since he was nominated for his Best Actor Oscar. But he has now committed to being a part of the new Downton film,” the insider added.

The Downton Abbey cast and crew will reportedly return to Highclere Castle this summer.

Filming is due to start in the coming months with the film expected to land in cinemas in 2025.

We may have to wait until 2025 for the third film, but we have plenty of time to start watching the series from the beginning.
