Filming first began for the ITV series in May and include scenes from several stunning Victorian locations, including London, Bath and Northumberland.

While Downton Abbey’s award-winning creative team will be reunited once again for the adaption of his novel, also called Belgravia, including Killing Eve’s Colin Wratten producing.

Belgravia, published in 2016, tells the story of secrets and dishonour amongst the upper echelon of London society in the 19th Century.

It starts when a businessman named James Trenchard (Philip Glenister) and his wife Anne Trenchard (Tamsin) accept an invitation to the now legendary ball hosted by the Duchess of Richmond on the fateful eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.

They attend with their daughter, who catches the eye of the son of one of the most influential families in England.

That night sets into motion a series of events that will have consequences for decades to come.

It later follows the families as secrets unravel behind the porticoed doors of Belgravia, one of London’s grandest postcode.

With filming underway, it is expected to air either later this year or early 2020.

In a release announcing the show executive producer Gareth Neame said: ‘It’s fantastic to be working once again with Julian, a master storyteller.

‘In Belgravia he has painted a wonderful backdrop of 19th century society against which intrigue and dynastic power struggles will play out.’

Producers will be hoping to replicate the success of Downton Abbey, another Julian Fellowes creation, which pulled in record ratings, catapulted its actors to stardom and continues to enjoy buzz almost a decade after its first episode aired.

Belgravia is a Carnival Films co-production with EPIX for ITV.

Drama: Belgravia is based on a Julian’s book published in 2016, and tells the story of secrets and dishonour amongst the upper echelon of London society in the 19th Century
