“Downton Abbey” may be ending with its sixth season later this year but the ITV drama may continue as a live music event.

Series composer John Lunn recently revealed that he and “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes are in discussions to create a touring event featuring the show’s music and cast in an interview with Billboard.

“There’s talk of Julian Fellowes and I and some of the cast doing a live tour the way Doctor Who did,” Lunn said.

“70 per cent of it will be music from the show. There might be some Elgar, there might be some jazz of the periods.

Some of the actors will likely recite. We’ll have a screen. We may have the music live to several scenes. Julian may be the host.

“I’d say there’s a 75 per cent chance it will happen.”

The Emmy Award-winning composer also hinted at what we can expect from the final season, saying, “It’s not going to be plain sailing.

“There’s a few hints about how well the estate is doing. I haven’t seen any real hints so far of how it’s going to end and I’ve read everything but the final script.”

Earlier this month, it was announced that the British Academy of Film and Television Arts will present Fellowes and the cast of “Downton Abbey” with a Special Award at a ceremony on August 11.
