The TV series, which aired on ITV from September 2010 until Christmas Day 2015, followed the lives of the aristocratic household during the early 20th century.

King George V and Queen Mary, portrayed by cast newcomers Simon Jones and Geraldine James, will grace the Abbey with their company, along with new character Lady Maud Bagshaw, played by Imelda, who also joins the franchise. 

News of a sequel comes after leading star Hugh Bonneville told The Mirror he was open to the idea of a second film.

He said: 'When we started filming, I thought this is going to be a nice full stop, but there is such an appetite for it, I can see it carrying on. I'd never say never!'  

Hugh added that stepping out on the film set wasn't that different to making the beloved British TV show, as it just felt like 'a bigger table.'

And of returning to the characters in a feature-length setting, he said: 'Here we all were eight years later. As we looked around the room there were grins of "can you believe we're here again!" '
