Focus Features has announced that production on Julian Fellowes’ upcoming Downton Abbey sequel has finally begun with the original principal cast, including Michelle Dockery and Dame Maggie Smith, all set to once again reprise their iconic roles from the beloved period drama series. The studio has also confirmed that Downton Abbey 2 will be making its debut in theaters on December 22, 2021, just in time for Christmas.

In addition to the original cast, the sequel has added four new cast members in the form of Emmy nominee Hugh Dancy (Elizabeth I), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy), César Award winner Nathalie Baye (The Young Lieutenant) and Golden Globe nominee Dominic West (The Affair). BAFTA-nominated director Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) has also signed on to helm the project, succeeding Michael Engler, who directed the 2019 film.

Downton Abbey 2 will feature the return of the critically acclaimed show’s main cast, including award-winning actress Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Dockery, and Elizabeth McGovern. The initial film followed a Royal Visit to the Crawley family and Downton staff from the King and Queen of England and ended with a ball fitting for the Royal Family.
