It’s Official – Downton Abbey Is Coming Back For A Third Movie. The news is sweeping the Internet this morning. We are revisiting the Crowleys again. Have Mrs. Pattmore make you some tea because they’re back and adding some new faces to the mix.

Fans of the series and subsequent two movies are surely as excited as I am this morning. This is great news. We all want to see what our favorite posh family and their entertaining counterparts downstairs are faring. We certainly have all laughed and cried alongside these colorful characters and storylines. Don’t we all wish we were a little like Lady Mary or as wise and funny as her grandmother the Dowager Countess? This news certainly put some pep in my Monday.
