A decade of Downton Abbey? TV bosses want the hit show to run and run (MIRROR)
Lady Mary Crawley, and the ups and downs of her aristocratic 1920s family, could grace our screens for a decade if Downton Abbey bosses get their wish.
Producer Gareth Neame said: “I think Downton Abbey is going to go on for a while. Right now the show is still growing in the US and it would be awful to think of it ending now.
"I would rather let the show run between four and 10 years, I imagine.”
But he added that he was wary of pushing creator Julian Fellowes’ hit drama too far.
The fourth series is now in production. Gareth said: “I’d rather that in 20 years’ time it was loved rather than we went on a season too long and people fell out of love with it.”
