Downton Abbey fans, start preparing yourselves now because another "tragedy" is on the way.

It sounds like Julian Fellowes will not be taking it easy on the PBS period drama's loyal fans in the final season, as star Joanne Froggatt, who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, revealed that the final episodes will have "a bit of tragedy" when she chatted with E! News' Giuliana Rancic on the 2015 Emmy red carpet. Gulp!

Of course, Downton fans are no stranger to tragedy, thanks to the tragic deaths of  (Years-old spoiler warning!) Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens) and Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) over the years. But still, haven't we suffered enough?!

"We can expect all the things that everybody has come to know and love about Downton," Froggatt, who was styled in a gorgeous J. Mendel gown by Fashion Police's Brad Goreski, teased of the final season. "There's drama, there's intrigue, there's romance, there's a bit of tragedy, not too much…but it's a great final season."

And Froggatt seemed confident that fans will be satisfied by the series' ultimate ending, "I think everyone will be happy with where we leave the characters. I'm excited to see how it goes down."

Fans of Froggatt's character Anna, who has been through her fair share of tragedy on the show, including a sexual assault, will be happy to see her smiling in the trailer for the final season, which also hints at a bunch of potential new romances.

The final season begins on Sunday, Jan. 3 on PBS in the United States. Fans across the pond get to find out what happens to the Crawleys on Sunday, Sept. 20.
