Downton Abbey fans aren’t the only ones rooting for a reunion movie — the cast is totally on board, assuming their schedules will allow it.

During an interview with the Independent talking about his new series, W1A, Hugh Bonneville, couldn’t help but reflect on his Downton days, and what he hopes will happen with the show in the future.

“I’ve yet to see a shooting script. But we’re all still friends, and I look back on Downton with enormous affection. I do think there’s a lot of good will towards the notion of doing a movie, and it would be nice to think we could give it one last hurrah,” Bonneville told the Independent in regards to what he’s planning to do next.

Bonneville, who played the head of the Crawley family (assuming you don’t count his mother Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, who everyone knows was really the one in charge), is on board with getting the cast back together, he said there could be one thing standing in the way of a reunion — and it has to do with location.

The most difficult part about a reunion movie he said, “would be herding all us cast members together again, because we’re now all in different parts of the world. It could be a logistical nightmare. But never say never.”

We agree with the “never say never” sentiment, especially since Joanne Froggatt, who played lady’s maid Anna Bates, revealed that if they can get all 22 actors together, “everyone would like to do it.”

It’s been two years since we said goodbye to the Crawleys and Downton Abbey, so hopefully a movie does get made, sooner rather than later.
