While the drama aired its final episode in the U.K. earlier this month and will premiere stateside on Jan. 3, Fellowes says he'd like to see the Crawleys live on in a film. "I truly hope there will be a film of Downton," he told Vulture at the International Emmy Awards Monday night. "I mean, that's what I really want."
Of course, there's still "a ways to go" as far as actually getting a movie project off the ground, so for now, he'll be focusing on writing a potential script.
"So much of this depends on the script. For me, it's the real key here," he said. "This holds a great deal of interest for me, because I still have more to say with Downton. I see this transitioning to film quite well, and I certainly am the person to tell this story."
While you wait to hear if a movie will happen, reminisce with the trailer for the show's final season:
