When the highly acclaimed English drama Downton Abbey finished up on TV back in 2015, many fans thought that was the end for their favourite show... But now a big screen movie adapation has been confirmed!

Actress and star of the show Joanne Froggatt  recently wrote on her Twitter "Delighted to announce we’re getting the band back together!" and shared a photo of her with some fellow cast mates.

The official Downton Abbey Twitter later confirmed the news. "Welcome back to Downton!" they wrote. "We’re thrilled to announce that #DowntonAbbey is coming to the big screen. Film production begins this summer."

All of the cast are said to be returning to the movie version but currently there is no confirmed release date. However, since filming is set to start by the end of the year, hopefully we won't have to wait for too long!
