“Downton Abbey” ended its’ six-season television run a year ago, but the Crawley family and their downstairs staff are coming back in a new form.
“Downton Abbey: The Exhibition,” a worldwide, interactive tour featuring the British aristocratic family and their servants, will kick off June 17 in Singapore and travel to the United States and other locations in 2018 and beyond.
Promoters promise a “multi-million-dollar, museum-quality experience.”
Launched by NBCUniversal International Studios and Imagine Exhibitions, the traveling exhibit is designed to connect fans with their favorite characters and include never-before-seen footage. It will also offer a look at the post-Edwardian time period in which the show is set.
Spanning World War I, the post-war years and the Roaring Twenties, the exhibit will give visitors a chance to learn more about British society, culture and fashion as well as historical events of the era. Features from the set will be included, such as Mrs. Patmore’s kitchen, and some of the costumes worn by the characters will be on display.
“Seen in over 250 territories, “Downton Abbey” is a global phenomenon, and viewers all around the world continue to ask for more,” gushed Michael Edelstein, the NBC studio president. “We are excited to expand the brand in a manner that few TV series could ever dream of doing.”
With 69 Emmy nominations, the series is the most nominated non-American show in Emmy history, reported Deadline.com.
