'Downton Abbey': Main cast re-signs through Season 5


Some excellent news is coming our way from across the pond, "Downton Abbey" fans. TV Line is reporting that multiple main actors on the popular British import drama have signed on through Season 5. How thrilling!Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt and Brendan Coyle have all signed on for two more seasons past the one they are currently filming, which would bring "Downton" to a five-season run (though nobody says that would be the last season).TV Line also says that those yet to sign are Dan Stevens, Siobhan Finneran and Jessica Brown Findlay, though that doesn't meant they won't. Strangely, Maggie Smith's name is neither mentioned as having signed nor as yet to sign, so we wonder what her status is? The show wouldn't be the same with the Dowager Countess! We hope there are no plans to kill her off or something. But anyway, we are over the moon at the prospect...
