Joanne Froggatt Gives Update on 'Downton Abbey' Movie

Joanne Froggatt has something to say about those Downton Abbey movie rumors!

While promoting her new show Liar with co-star Ioan Gruffudd at the TCA summer press panel on Saturday (July 29), the 36-year-old actress said that she hasn’t heard anything new on the potential movie.

“Selfishly, it would be great to get together for ten weeks and have a little reunion,” Joanne told Variety. “But in all honesty, I have no idea. I absolutely have no idea. There’s been talk, there’s been conversations, but nothing has happened. We’re all sort of leaving it up to the gods. We have no information.”

Since popular show ended back in 2015, rumors have been swirling that that a movie would be coming soon – and the cast is totally on board.

“I think we’d all like to do it,” Joanne said. “For me, the show finished in a great place and a great time. We finished on a high. Everything must come to an end, all good things must come to an end. I was very happy with where we left it.”

FYI: Joanne is wearing a Johanna Ortiz dress.

Will Mary Find Romance on Downton Abbey's Final Season?

With the final season of Downton Abbey upon us, we can’t help but wonder where Mary’s (Michelle Dockery) love life will take us this year.

It sounds like she’ll be busy taking care of business at the start of the season.

“She’s enjoying looking after the estate and making decisions, much to Violet’s (Maggie Smith) dislike,” Michelle told TVLine.com. “I don’t think Violet’s gotten used to her two granddaughters being working girls. Her bond with [son] George is strengthening. He’s her priority. So her romantic life is quiet in the beginning.”

Don’t worry though. Matthew Goode‘s character comes back into the picture!

“Henry Talbot comes back into her life. But it’s complicated, as it always is. It’s never plain sailing in her love life,” Michelle added.

DO YOU THINK Mary should end up with Henry?

'Downton Abbey' Final Season Premieres Tonight! Scoop Here!

Are ready to begin your final farewell to the Crawley family?

Downton Abbey is set to begin airing its last season tonight (January 3) in the U.S. and the cast is dishing some dirt on what fans can expect.

“Just when I thought it was coming to an end and wrapping up for Mary, Julian [Fellowes, the creator] threw a cat among the pigeons,” Michelle Dockery told TVLine.com. “There is a really great arc. It’s something I wasn’t expecting, and it’s really clever what he does.”

Her co-star Laura Carmichael added, “It’s a really satisfying ending. It’s hard. It’s never going to be the way that you think it is. There’s going to be a lot of gasps and tears, but all in that classic Downton way!”

TELL JJ: Are you excited for the last season of Downton Abbey? How do you think it will end?

Maggie Smith Has Never Watched 'Downtown Abbey'

Maggie Smith opens up about the end of Downton Abbey in this rare new interview.

The 80-year-old actress has won multiple awards for her role as Lady Violet, Dowager Countess, including two Emmys and a Golden Globe.

When asked if she’s ever seen the show, Maggie told CBS News, “No. But they gave me the boxed set. And I’m going to do all sorts of things now, ’cause I’m free!”

She also revealed that she would often skip wearing a corset while filming.

“In actual fact, I have to say that I did cheat a bit. Because I promised that if I sat up, bolt upright, I made it look as though I were wearing corsets,” Maggie said. “Don’t tell anybody…I don’t want it to be put around. I was tortured every day.”

The final season of Downton Abbey premieres on Sunday, January 3 @ 9/8c on PBS Masterpiece.
