Focus Features just announced that Downton Abbey 2 is coming to theaters December 22, 2021, and that the cast will be returning.

Based on the very popular TV series about the Crawley family facing the changing world in early 1900's England that ran from 2010-2015, the upcoming movie is the follow-up to Downton Abbey, which was released in 2019.

The movie will see the return of the original cast, and they will be joined by Dominic West, Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, and Nathalie Baye.

The announcement stated that Downton creator Julian Fellows will write the movie's screenplay and Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge will return to produce again as well.

These are good signs. Sequels are always better when the original cast returns and the people that made the magic happen before are back to tell another story.

Gareth Neame was quoted as saying, "After a very challenging year with so many of us separated from family and friends, it is a huge comfort to think that better times are ahead and that next Christmas we will be re-united with the much beloved characters of Downton Abbey."

If you have not had the chance to watch the series or the 2019 movie, I recommend starting with the series. While the movie can stand on its own to a certain degree, its primary appeal is seeing the familiar characters that were well established through five years of the original series in a new story. If you watch the movie without being familiar with the settings, characters, and backstory, you may wonder what the fuss is all about.

As a fan of the original TV series and the movie, this is very welcome news indeed! The Christmas holiday is becoming quite filled with new releases (see all movies coming soon), but that should be a good thing as more variety will provide something for everyone to enjoy at the movies!
