A glimpse at the new season of Downton Abbey reveals a mix of tears, laughter and romance
The fourth season of Downton Abbey won’t be on the air in the U.S. until next year, but fans of the British drama can get a tantalizing glimpse of what the lies ahead for the Crawley family in a new one-minute trailer.
As Lady Mary continues to mourn the loss of her husband, Matthew, who died in a car accident at the end of the last season, her grandmother, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, tells her: “You have a straightforward choice, you must choose either death or life.”
But moving on isn’t easy.
What follows is a montage of romantic moments for Downton‘s other upstairs and downstairs residents, more tears from Lady Mary – who’s consoled by steadfast Carson the butler – trouble for former jailbird Bates and Anna and some new love interests for widowed Tom Branson, Lady Rose and maybe even Mary.
The show returns to PBS Jan. 5.
