Downton Abbey Season 6 soon on RTL


    Downton Abbey is still one of the most successful television series in the world. Oscar winner and "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes ("Gosford Park", "Vanity Fair", "Belgravia") created the basis for a successful format that captivated viewers beyond the series finale. The huge success is testified not only by an audience of millions around the world, but also by numerous top-class prizes, including three Golden Globes, 15 Emmys and other nominations. In 2011, the historical drama from England even secured an entry in the Guinness Book of Records – as the "TV series rated best by critics" of the year. This success is also reflected in the ratings: New records were repeatedly set in Great Britain and the USA, and over 120 million viewers watched the series in 220 countries.
    With the series, the creators have achieved a feat between social drama, period piece and soap opera, which scores with outstanding show values. Because unlike modern fabrics, the detailed screenplays by Julian Fellowes also give viewers an insight into the social and political backgrounds of the early 20th century. For example, the historical events of the First World War are included in the plot, as are the "Golden Twenties" and the Irish struggle for independence in the further course of the series. Add to that the opulent decor, pointed dialogues and some of the most prominent actors of our time – including Hugh Bonneville and the two-time Oscar winner Dame Maggie Smith, who alone received three Emmys, a Golden Globe and the BAFTA for her performance in "Downton Abbey" has been. The production cost is estimated at £ 1 million per episode.
    In September 2019 "Downton Abbey" celebrated a big comeback on the big screen and there was a reunion in front of and behind the camera with all the popular faces. Julian Fellowes has already confirmed another feature film.
    For years Julian Fellowes' style-defining costume drama (including three Golden Globes and 15 Emmys) captivated the audience. Now the noble family is asking for the last tea at Downton Abbey: in ten episodes of the final sixth season, love and loss, joy and pain reach their emotional climax. A turbulent year 1925, which was marked by the economic crisis in England, came to a bitter end.
    RTL shows the episodes of the sixth season Downton Abbey on July 20, 2020 at 9:15 p.m. on free TV.
    Hidden passions, spicy secrets and evil intrigues have a firm grip on the nobility and their employees. Economic as well as political events have an impact on each of them – and so one is united in the worries that come with the economic crisis in 1925.
    While other noble families are already forced to sell their properties, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville), Count of Grantham, is determined to save Downton. But for that he has to make difficult decisions and is apparently forced to fire some of the staff. The servants are facing an uncertain future, which is upsetting everyone. Hardly any of them can and would like to imagine a life other than Downton Abbey, but for some this could also mean a new beginning. So also for Thomas (Rob James-Collier), who has to overcome some hurdles. Mr. Molesley (Kevin Doyle), for example, tries his hand at teaching, although his first lesson doesn't go as planned. And Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) also has to make a decision: will she continue to hide her secret with all her might – or face the truth and possibly risk everything? And is there finally a debate between her and her sister Mary (Michelle Dockery)? Carson, on the other hand, catches up with a family illness and tries to ignore this fact – until it can no longer be denied … Does he have to cancel his wedding to Mrs. Hughes now?
    Ever since the events of 1912, with the sinking of the Titanic and the related death of Mary's fiancé, who should also have been the heir of Downton, have all had a great emotional journey in recent years – but there is so much to be said firmly: The big series finale now reveals a last roller coaster of emotions, on which joy and sorrow are closer together than ever before. While for some people great happiness seems to be forever denied, for others a dream comes true …
