Downton Abbey could reportedly come to an end next year.
The show has enjoyed worldwide success but ITV could pull the plug as its stars leave for the bright lights of Hollywood.
A source told The Mirror: ‘After five years on Downton, they are understandably excited at the prospect of taking up some of the roles coming their way.’
Senior executives on the period drama are believed to be referring to next year’s Christmas special as the show’s last.
However, an ITV spokesperson told the paper that there are ‘no plans’ to conclude Downton Abbey just yet.
