Downton Abbey's final season 6 will be set in 1925, six months after the events of season 5. As you can see the S6 Cast promo photo has a few characters noticeably missing: Lady Rose, Tom and daughter Sybbie Branson. Spoilers Alert: Lily James as Lady Rose and her husband Atticus have relocated to the United States and Allen Leech as Tom Branson will now be staying in Boston, Massachusetts. James and Leech reportedly will no longer be in the show as regular cast members but are expected to drop in every now and then as guest appearances.
