This Christmas, the Crawleys are returning home — to MASTERPIECE. The Downton Abbey movie, based on the mega-hit television series that won 15 Primetime Emmys® and earned 69 Emmy® nominations and set viewing records for a PBS drama will air on MASTERPIECE on Christmas Day, December 25, 2021, at 5 p.m., repeating twice during New Year’s weekend.

“We are so happy to offer our viewers the chance to spend the holidays with the Crawleys,” said MASTERPIECE executive producer Susanne Simpson. “For Downton Abbey fans, this movie is the perfect treat everyone can enjoy.”

“PBS is proud to have been the home of Downton Abbey on MASTERPIECE for six incredible award-winning seasons,” said Maria Bruno Ruiz, vice president of program scheduling at PBS. “Since its debut in 2011, Downton Abbey has been a runaway hit with fans, and we are thrilled to welcome the Crawley family back to PBS.”

Billed as a grand motion picture event when it opened in theaters in 2019, the Downton Abbey movie follows the beloved Crawley family and their intrepid staff as they prepare for the most important moment of their lives: a royal visit from the King and Queen of England. The momentous occasion will unleash scandal, romance and intrigue that will leave the future of Downton hanging in the balance.
