Shooting began on the untitled second Downton Abbey film last week, which is set for a release date of December 22, 2021. All the beloved cast members have returned to their roles, including Maggie Smith and Michelle Dockery, along with a host of new characters.

Newcomers Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock and Dominic West have joined the cast for Downton Abbey 2.

“After a very challenging year with so many of us separated from family and friends, it is a huge comfort to think that better times are ahead and that next Christmas we will be reunited with the much beloved characters of Downton Abbey,” producer Gareth Neame said in a statement.

Not much is known about the plot of the film as of yet. Late last year, after much speculation, Downton Abbey actor Jim Carter, who plays butler Charles Carson, confirmed a feature-length Downton Abbey sequel was in the works.

Speaking to ITV show This Morning, Carter said the cast have already been handed the script, but has remained tight-lipped on details.

“If you promise not to tell anyone, I’ll let you know that we’ve seen a script. The script for a second film is there. We’ve seen it, it’s very funny. It’s got all the same characters in, all the regular characters,” he said.

Rumours of a Downton Abbey sequel have been circulating for a while.

Earlier in 2020, show writer Julian Fellowes revealed he would start working on a new Downton script when he finishes writing another upcoming period drama.

Long-time Downton Abbey producer Gareth Neame, who pitched the original concept for the show to Fellowes, also told The Hollywood Reporter a sequel was in the works.

“We’re working on what the story is, and when we might be able to make it. But it’s the same as the first time around – we have to try and get everyone back together again. And that was very challenging,” he said. 

The first Downton Abbey film was a box office hit, becoming Focus Features’ highest-grossing film of all time in the US.
