Julian Fellowes expects Downton Abbey series six
Julian Fellowes would be ''amazed'' if 'Downton Abbey' didn't get a sixth series.
The hit ITV period drama will return for its fifth series later this year and the show's creator is optimistic that another run of episodes will follow.
He told Harper's Bazaar magazine: ''I would be amazed if there wasn't another series after [this one].
''I don't know yet if there is a season six ... it's not going to go on forever.''
'Downton' has been a monumental success in both the UK and in America, where it has picked up a legion of Hollywood fans.
Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal recently revealed she would love to play a role in the hit show.
She said: ''I love 'Downton'. I would totally love to be in it. But I don't know how I would fit in.
''There is this parlour game where people say who they would be and a friend said she would of course be Lady Mary. She said I would be the cousin who sleeps with everybody! A rich English playgirl!''
Guest stars in the new series of the show include Richard E. Grant and Anna Chancellor.04-07-2014
