It looks like there's a possibility that Downton Abbey could end after the fifth season.
On Friday, Michelle Dockery who plays Lady Mary revealed that she has no plans to leave the show despite speculation that the series may end.
"I am sticking with the show for however long the producers want it to go," Dockery said.
"We don't know how long it's going to go on for," she continued. "We're on series five now. What's great is that we have six months of the year to do other things in between so I am still here and whatever opportunities come up, then I will go with it."
Creator Julian Fellowes revealed in December that he wasn't sure about a sixth season either.
"I don't know yet if there is a season six, but it's not going to go on forever," Fellowes said. "It won't be Perry Mason."
The show's executive producer Gareth Neame revealed earlier this week that Maggie Smith will be reprising her role as Violet Crawley, and she can apparently be on the show for as long as she wants.
"She'll be back this season," Neame said. "She's a huge part of the show, and I think she enjoys doing it. I think it's remarkable for someone who's had such a long and illustrious career to be still delivering work of this caliber. One has also really got to make reference to the remarkable combination of Julian Fellowes and Maggie Smith. She's almost like a muse to him."
Downton Abbey Season 5 is expected to return in January 2015 on PBS.
