'Downton Abbey' season 6 spoilers: a wedding, new love and family conflicts all on the horizon

Fans will soon have to bid goodbye to the denizens of "Downton Abbey" as season 6 will be the series' last hurrah.

While it's no secret that this will be the final season, viewers are hoping that the series will end happily, with all the loose ends neatly tied up in a bow. Unfortunately, no one seems to know how the British period drama will end.

A panel interview for the series was held at the Writers Guild Theater last Saturday and during the course of the interview Hugh Bonneville, who plays Lord Grantham, admitted that he has not received the script for the show's finale.

According to series creator Julian Fellowes, it is because he has not written the script yet.

The cast of "Downton Abbey" are midway through their six-month shoot already and spoilers already abound.

Last season, viewers were treated to Mr. Carson's touching proposal to Mrs. Hughes. Luckily, she accepted as a wedding will round off the final season nicely. Cast members have been seen filming a wedding in Burghclere, Hampshire and at the Lincoln Inn Fields. The Mirror has even released photos of the wedding guests, with Lady Edith Crawley, Bertie Pelham, Violet Crawley, Robert Crawley and Lady Rose all decked out in their finery.

A romance also seems to be brewing between Lady Edith and Pelham.  Lady Mary might also find her happy ending with Henry Talbot, but that would depend on whether Matthew Goode, who breathes life to the character, is available.

Gareth Neame, the show's executive producer, admits to Variety that they "really like Matthew and we've been interested in getting him into the show for a while," especially since his character appears to be perfect for Mary. However, his gig at "The Good Wife" might prevent him from reprising his role.

A trailer for "Downton Abbey" also seems to hint that the next season might focus more on older characters like Lady Violet and Mr. Carson.

Fellowes' admission that he likes "older characters to have emotional lives, because I think it's truthful" appears to be a nod to that theory.
