Speculation about the ITV show's future arose after creator Julian Fellowes said that he is unsure whether there will be a sixth series.
In a statement, Neame said: "I can confirm that there are no plans to end the show after the fifth series. ITV commission each series on a year-by-year basis.
"In an interview given to the Wall Street Journal, Julian Fellowes stated that the show would not go on forever (inevitable of course and something both he and I have been on the record for previously).
"For now ITV have commissioned series five and that is what we are busy preparing."
