An NBC project that’s been in the works for years is finally moving again: The Gilded Age, with the Downton Abbey team attached. So basically it’s America’s Vanderpump Rules to Britain’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
An NBCUniversal exec has suggested that a Downton Abbey movie is still in the cards and they’ll hopefully have things rolling along by next year. This seems to be news to the cast, though, so don’t clear your calendar just yet.
Saying there’s a new book about the Mitford sisters is a bit like sharing the breaking news that the sun rose again. Of course there is a new book out about the six legendary ladies of the Mitford family; they are a well-tapped source of 20th century intrigue, with enough lingering questions about their lives and…
Long-simmering rumors of a Downton Abbey movie appear to be close to consummation—uh, confirmation.
Joanne Froggatt, who plays the much-tested maid Anna Bates on Downton Abbey, stopped by Conan recently. And she revealed that when Kate Middleton visited the set, she accidentally cracked a dirty joke to the duchess.
Dan Stevens wasn’t killed off in an especially romantic way at the end of his tenure on Downton Abbey, and now it seems he may be in danger of death-by-monster-reptile. He has just been cast as Anne Hathaway’s ex-boyfriend in Colossal, a film about a woman who experiences a telepathic connection with a giant lizard.…
Compliments of PBS, we can now watch the trailer for the sixth and final season of Downton Abbey. But, to be honest, it’s a bit of a drag, and a familiar one at that.

It's a big day for Anglophiles and aristocracy fetishists: Kate, Duchess of Cambridge (née Middleton), visited the set of Downton Abbey and met the cast, many of whom were (of course) in costume.
Gather ye razor-sharp witticisms while ye may, because it sounds like Maggie Smith is leaving Downton Abbey after next season.
Thanks to Netflix and PBS, I can feed my British pop culture addiction without booking a Virgin flight. But American television executives are determined to ignore this luxury and cook up watered down versions of international shows like no one's ever heard of Pirate Bay (RIP).
If you've watched Downton Abbey, you know romance has never really been Lady Mary's thing. *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT*
Well, this is cute: The PBS Kids cartoon Arthur, which has been on the air for approximately six million years, is doing an episode that riffs on Downton Abbey. It will be called "Fountain Abbey," and you can see a brief preview above. Way to keep it on-brand, PBS!
For the first time ever Lady Edith, Mrs. Patmore, and Mrs. Hughes played the notoriously crass game Cards Against Humanity and they had a blast.

The Downton Abbey cast has gathered for a delightfully zany (British-humored) and very special Christmas short for the TV fundraiser Text Santa. With cameos by Jeremy Piven (Mr. Selfridge) and Absolutely Fabulous' Joanna Lumley, it pokes just enough fun at itself to remind you why you have spent hours watching rich…
During the final countdown of Mary and Matthew's courtship on Downton Abbey, I started screaming at my television for them to just get a room — hell, even a broom closet — so that they could FINALLY have the hot and heavy feel-up (or even just a prolonged under-the-table handholding!) that their yearning glances were…
The dog from Downton Abbey isn't being killed off because she has the same name as a terrorist organization, according to one of the show's stars.
