So, it’s official. As suggested by RadioTimes.com last October, ITV period drama Downton Abbey is to end after its sixth series. And, of course, those folks over at Twitter.com had something to say about it.
First the news broke…
Some, surprisingly, didn’t take it too well…

And – of course – negativity
Downton Abbey is ending. As a British person, I couldn’t be more thrilled.— Scott Bryan (@scottygb) March 26, 2015
Six seasons and nothing happened (except some gifs of Maggie Smith and Snatch Game) #DowntonAbbey

The last episode of Downton Abbey is set on the first day the show was aired, when they all sit down to watch the first episode…— Moose Allain Ꙭ (@MooseAllain) March 26, 2015
In the final episode of Downton Abbey, we discover the entire thing has been taking place inside one of David Cameron’s tears.
