DOWNTON ABBEY Creator Julian Fellowes Confirms Fifth Season May be its Last

DOWNTON ABBEY creator Julian Fellowes has confirmed the show's time may be nearing an end.

In a new interview with the Wall Street Journal, Fellowes declared that the highly popular historic drama, returning to PBS tonight for its fourth season, will not "go on forever."

Fellows said that a fifth series is definitely happening, but "I don't know yet if there is a season six, but it's not going to go on for ever. It won't be Perry Mason."

As previously reported, when 'DOWNTON' has concluded, Fellowes will begin working on NBC's THE GUILDED AGE, because the time constraints of working on two big budget projects with lengthy production timelines was slightly too much.

On Season 4 of the historical drama, Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG award-winner Paul Giamatti (John Adams, Sideways, Barney's Version, Cinderella Man) will join the cast portraying Cora's maverick, playboy brother Harold, starring alongside the iconic Shirley MacLaine and the regular cast members.

Downton Abbey is a Carnival/Masterpiece Co-production. It is written and created by Julian Fellowes. Gareth Neame and Julian Fellowes are Executive Producers.
