Season 6

Downton Abbey is a British period drama television series created and principally written by Julian Fellowes and set in the fictional Downton Abbey, the Yorkshire country house of the Earl and Countess of Grantham, which follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants during the reign of King George V.

Season 6 opens in 1925 with a series of crises reflecting the momentous changes that are transforming society. Women's rights have given Lady Mary and Lady Edith new positions of responsibility: Mary runs the estate, and Edith manages the magazine she inherited from Michael Gregson.

Meanwhile, Tom Branson has left for Boston, and newlyweds Lady Rose and Atticus Aldridge are trying their luck in Jazz Age New York.

Anna Bates faces a murder charge, though many still suspect her husband. And for the rest of the servants, big doubts hang over their jobs. Will great houses and the fortunes that support them soon be gone?

As our time with the Crawleys begins to draw to a close and we see what will finally become of them all, the family, and the servants who work for them, remain inseparably interlinked as they face new challenges and begin forging different paths in a rapidly changing world.

Secrets and rifts threaten the unity of the family, while those below stairs continue to navigate social changes which put their futures in jeopardy.

Downton Abbey is a Carnival Films/Masterpiece co-production written and created by Julian Fellowes. The series is executive produced by Gareth Neame, Julian Fellowes, Liz Trubridge and Nigel Marchant. Chris Croucher is the producer.

The executive producer for Masterpiece is Rebecca Eaton. The senior series producer for Masterpiece is Susanne Simpson.
