It's official, Downton Abbey to end its series run after Season 6! A movie next?

As I've previously posted 5 days ago on P&P NewsBits here, Downton Abbey ( co-star as Isobel Crawley) is now officially ending its series after Season 6. According to DeadlineNBCUniversal-owned Carnival Films, the producer of Downton Abbey, today announced that Season 6 will be the final season of the worldwide hit TV drama. The news isn’t entirely surprising, given that last January NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt told TV critics Julian Fellowes long awaited NBC period drama The Gilded Age had been put on the front burner – disturbing news for Downton fans, given that he writes every episode of the PBS hit.

Happy Birthday Keira Knightley!

Today (March 26th) is the two-time Academy Award® Nominee (for Best Actress performance of her iconic role, Elizabeth Bennet in the 2005's Pride & Prejudice film and Best Supporting Actress as Joan Clarke for 2014's The Imitation Game, which is coming to DVD and Blu-ray March 31st!) and new Mom-to-be 's 30th Birthday!

TBT: Elizabeth & Darcy's memorable and unforgettable scenes in Pride & Prejudice GIFs

This Pride & Prejudice (2005) movie gets me every time whether re-watching it countless of times in nearly a decade or seeing its gorgeous movie poster, screen captures, and amazing stills, or listening to its timeless OST, and seeing a few of its beautiful filming locations in person. No matter how many times I've seen this movie, this P&P version just never gets old in my viewing. I can't believe this movie is almost 10 years old in September of this year. Time sure flies fast. It seems just like yesterday that I was anticipating, so excited and couldn't wait to see this movie. At the time, I was thinking, finally...there's a P&P movie version that I can actually get into, which made me go back and finished reading the book, and made me a huge fan of of all things P&P.

Speaking of P&P movie, and since today's Thursday...here's a throwback to my favorite P&P version and OTP: Elizabeth & Darcy's random, memorable and unforgettable scenes together (and separately) in the following awesome P&P GIFs (thanks to those who made them via Tumblr...) that gets me every time I see them.

See Elizabeth & Darcy gifs in some of my favorite scenes in P&P movie below...
