It's almost time to return to the Abbey! American audiences will get to watch Season 4 starting January 5, 2014! Of course, the show will be long over in the UK by that time. Why PBS and ITV don't sync up their show schedules, we'll never understand. Sigh. At least we have the first promo released in the US to keep us entertained.
Of course, waiting for the series to air is nothing new to US fans. Season 3 also aired in the United Kingdom several months before it aired overseas. To help with the wait, we've got spoilers galore to help pass the time including recaps of every episode aired so far in the UK. That's right. You can know everything that's going to happen before it does so no nasty plot twists upend your evening like a couple particular Season 3 episodes did.
If you're looking to remain unspoiled, however, no problem. We're all ears when it comes to fan suggestions on where the series should go. What with the absences of major characters Lady Sybil Crawley (Jessica Brown Findlay) and Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), the possibilities are endless. Share your thoughts in the comments below!
Tune into PBS at 9 p.m. on January 5, 2014, for the premiere of Downton Abbey Season 4. Got plans for the big night? Share them with us! We love ourselves a good Downton watch party.
