It’s been an emotional week for the television universe. On March 26 it was announced that the popular British series, Downton Abbey
, will be coming to an end. The period drama follows the stories of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the early twentieth century.
With five seasons and a Christmas special already behind it, producers for the show have decided the sixth season, premiering November, 2015 should come to a close.
Executive producer, Gareth Naeme said of the announcement,
“We can promise a final season full of all the drama and intrigue, but with the added excitement of discovering how and where they all end up…”
No comment yet on the news from series star, Dame Maggie Smith or major fan girl, Princess Kate Middleton, who recently visited the set
Perhaps fans can ease the pain with a few laughs and a trip down memory lane as it was also announced this week that NBC will be calling Coach
up from the bench. The sitcom, which originally ran on ABC from 1989 to 1997, will be brought back as a sequel with star Craig T. Nelson reclaiming his role as Coach Hayden Fox.
NBC has revealed
the pitch for the first 13-episodes: “Coach Hayden Fox, in the present day, has retired from coaching. He is called back to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy league school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team.”
It’s seems these are the days when we must look back to look forward as several other major television revivals have been announced in recent weeks. As we reported on Tuesday
, Fox is bringing back the X-Files
and Showtime will also be revisiting the eerie 1990s drama, Twin Peaks
