Downton Abbey

The infectious period soap opera's sixth season will be its last, according to producers

Downton Abbey's upcoming sixth season will be its last.

First Zayn, then Looking, now this. How much more can a gay guy take in a week?

The announcement today came from Carnival Films and Masterpiece. Executive producer Gareth Neame said,

"Millions of people around the world have followed the journey of the Crawley family and those who serve them for the last five years. Inevitably there comes a time when all shows should end and Downton is no exception. We wanted to close the doors of Downton Abbey when it felt right and natural for the storylines to come together and when the show was still being enjoyed so much by its fans. We can promise a final season full of all the usual drama and intrigue, but with the added excitement of discovering how and where they all end up."

The series has earned 51 Emmy nominations and won 11 times. Indeed the prospect of a season without Maggie Smith was just too much for anyone to bear, obviously.

What are your predictions for the final season. Scions offed? Scullery maids married to lords of the manor? Lady Edith finally catches a freaking break?
