ITV, the British production company behind “Downton Abbey,” has posted the first look at Season 4, which is currently filming in the U.K.
Downton Abbey series four finds Lady Mary mourning her husband Matthew, who died six months earlier in a tragic car crash. Matthew
had just visited his wife and new baby George in hospital and was
returning to see his family when his car overturned killing the heir to
Will Mary find happiness again in the new series of Downton Abbey which will be back on our screen in the autumn.
We know that the show is casting a new love interest for Lady Mary, so that should be fun to watch. There are also pictures that caused speculation of the cast shooting Matthew’s funeral scene — they’re at a church and his headstone is seen — but the New York Times reports that “Downton” will pick up six months after Matthew’s death, so we aren’t sure what the cast is doing at the church in the village.
Are you excited, “Downton” fans? It returns to the U.S. airwaves in January 2014.
