It’s indeed a new era for Downton Abbey.
The latest film based on the hit series, Downton Abbey: A New Era, will make its debut on Peacock June 24, just 35 days after it opened in theaters. And the streamer is celebrating by debuting a Downton Abbey streaming channel on its platform.
Downton Abbey: A New Era, a sequel to the 2019 film, sees the Crawleys and their staff welcoming a film crew and their glamorous stars to Downton Abbey for the filming of a new silent movie. Meanwhile, other members of the family embark on a grand adventure to a villa in the south of France to solve a mystery about the Dowager Countess’ past.
The return of the beloved franchise reunites the original cast, including Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Raquel Cassidy, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Kevin Doyle, Michael Fox, Joanne Froggatt, Harry Hadden-Paton, Robert James-Collier, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera, Tuppence Middleton, Lesley Nichol, Maggie Smith, Imelda Staunton and Penelope Wilton.
Peacock is also home to all six seasons of the TV series, the 2019 film, and a one-hour special The Manners of Downton Abbey.
