    Cast of "Downton Abbey" attends The 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on Jan. 29, 2017, in Los Angeles, California.

    Three years after going off the air, "Downton Abbey" is coming back as a movie.

    Focus Features said Friday that it will this summer begin production on a "Downton" film that will reunite the Crawley family on the big screen. Series creator Julian Fellowes wrote the screenplay and will produce.

    The long-rumored film adaptation is likely to be released sometime next year. The primary cast members are all set to return.

    Over six seasons, "Downton Abbey" became a global hit, airing in at least 150 countries, and setting a record for non-U.S. television shows with 69 Emmy nominations.
