Focus Features announced Monday that Downton Abbey 2 will open in theaters this December. The film is a sequel to the 2019 film and the ITV series, which aired for six seasons from 2010 to 2015.
Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael and other original cast members will return, along with series creator Julian Fellowes. In addition, Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye and Dominic West will join the cast.
Focus Feature chairman Peter Kujawski said: “There’s no place like home for the holidays, and we can’t imagine a better gift than getting to reunite with Julian, Gareth, and the entire Downton family in 2021 to bring the Crawleys back home for their fans.”
Downton Abbey 2 is currently in production and will open in theaters Dec. 22.
