During an interview to promote his new drama Belgravia, show writer Fellowes said he would start working on a new Downton script when he finishes writing another upcoming period drama.

When asked about the sequel, Fellows said, “Give us a break, guv. Not until I’ve finished the scripts for The Gilded Age”.

It comes after long-time Downton Abbey producer Gareth Neame, who pitched the original concept for the show to Fellowes, 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.

Fellowes is currently promoting a new drama, Belgravia, based on his novel of the same name.

It’s currently in pre-production and is expected to be filmed later this year.

Meanwhile, his ten-part series The Gilded Age about millionaire titans of New York in the 1880s has been cast, and will star Christine Baranski, Amanda Peet, Cynthia Nixon, and Morgan Spector.
