'Downton Abbey' gets Season 5 order from ITV in the U.K.
Production will begin in 2014 for Season 5, with the season presumably beginning its run in the fall, the same as with each previous season. The U.S. run of Season 5 would then begin in early 2015. Creator Julian Fellowes and executive producer Gareth Neame will continue to helm the series.
Neame promises of Season 5, "All the usual highs and lows, romance, drama and comedy."
Season 4 of the popular period drama is airing currently in the U.K., with the season finale airing Sunday, Nov. 10 and then the annual holiday special airing Christmas Day. Season 4 begins airing in the U.S. on Jan. 5, 2014.
