Downton Abbey Movie in the works with filming to start in September!

In the meantime, a Downton Abbey exhibition is set to tour the world starting next month June 2017. According to this Deadline article last month, The multi-year international tour will begin on June 17 in Singapore and then travel throughout the U.S. in 2018 and beyond. The exhibition will connect fans with their favorite characters, costumes and locations, and feature never-before-seen footage. It will also offer a look at the post-Edwardian time period in which the show is set. Spanning World War I and the post-war years to the Roaring Twenties, visitors will have the chance to learn about British society, culture and fashion, in addition to historical events of the era.
