via TVLine: Downton's upcoming sixth season will be its last.
I can't say I'm surprised, or unhappy, with this news. For a show that started as a single mini series to then blossom into a full, successful series, I'd say six seasons is quite enough. It's time.
I'll miss spending my winter Sunday evenings with Mary and friends, but excited to see them wrap this up. Hoping for less Bates and Anna (just run away to America with Tom!), more Mary and [insert love interest's name] sparring, and please, please no death for the Dowager.
