The last Downton Abbey trailer left you in tears (shhh, it's OK to admit that, we know you got teary), but the latest teaser for the final season of the crossover hit drama highlights one of the show's other beloved elements: the sass! Oh yes, the snark and biting comments are flying in the new trailer released by PBS and Masterpiece.
You can't have a final season of Downton Abbey without some quality Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) barbs, judgmental Mary (Michelle Dockery) talking about Edith (Laura Carmichael), and love birds Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan) and Mr. Carson (Jim Carter). You just can't.
Will Edith live it up in the big city? Maybe. "Would you like a London life?" Aunt Rosamund (Samantha Bond) asks her. "The fact is, I'd like a life," Edith says. Same, Edith. Same.
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.
This may not be the last we see of Downton Abbey. There is chatter about a movie.
"Our position on that is we would be very interested in that. It is definitely something we're contemplating. It would be great fun to do. I think it would be a wonderful extension of everything that people loved about the TV show, but I can't confirm that it's definitely going to happen," executive producer Gareth Neame said. "We shall see."
But, "there are no plans to make a spinoff," he said. "There's been endless speculation about this, but there are no definite plans for a spinoff. Again, I couldn't rule it out."
