Grab the popcorn because all six seasons of Downton Abbey are on NOW TV

Grab the popcorn because all six seasons of Downton Abbey are on NOW TV.

The historical drama, which ran for five seasons, first began the day after the Titanic sank in 1912 before taking fans through the events of World War I, and bidding its final farewell in 1925.

However, thankfully for Downton Abbey fans, a feature film was later confirmed – and it became a massive success once it hit the big screen (and there’s even a sequel in the works, too!).

Whether you’ve seen the episodes countless times and are looking for a rewatch or you’ve never seen them before, we’ve got some good news: all six seasons of Downton Abbey are on NOW TV.

In case you have never seen the show before, Downton Abbey follows Lord Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham who sees his family heritage, especially the grand country home Downton Abbey, as his mission in life. The death of his heir aboard R.M.S. Titanic means distant cousin Matthew Crawley, a Manchester lawyer, suddenly is next in line – but while he’s the next heir, he resists the aristocratic way of life.

You can watch the trailer for season one below. 

Late last year, Gareth Neame confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that work on a sequel to the film has begun.

“We’re working on what the story is, and when we might be able to make it,” he said, before admitting there was one possible issue with the idea of a sequel. “But it’s the same as the first time around: We have to try to get everyone back together again. And that was very challenging.”

It turns out that the idea of a sequel to the film had been floating around for a long time.

“We started vaguely thinking about [a sequel] before the release of the movie. But we were kind of holding our breath,” Neame admitted. “The reaction to the film, the press tour in the U.S. and the buildup to release were so strong that we’d been thinking about it. And then it was clear from the first weekend that this was worth taking very seriously.”
