Return to "Downton Abbey"

"Downton Abbey"

Happy New Year! What better way to start 2014 than with a new season of Downton Abbey?! If you’re a fan, you’ve been waiting almost a year to catch up with the family and staff of our favorite British estate...

Has Lady Mary moved on after husband Matthew’s death? Is Lady Edith still seeing her married newspaper editor? Will Anna and Mr. Bates finally have some happiness? Is cousin Rose going to shake things up? And what kind of trouble will valet Thomas cause? Without giving away too much, this New York Times article, Washington Post story and Entertainment Weekly feature all tease the new season, which begins six months after the season 3 finale. Although these new episodes probably won’t require the huge box of tissues that last season did, you can still expect plenty of drama from both the upstairs and downstairs characters. Tune in to PBS on Sunday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. for the two-hour premiere.

In the meantime, stop by one of the library’s six locations for a variety of Downton Abbey materials, including the first three seasons on DVD, music from the show, Downton Abbey-inspired cookbooks, and behind-the-scenes guides. We’ve also got the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly, which provides “the obsessive viewer’s guide” to the show, and plenty of readalike books that will help keep you occupied until Sunday night. Enjoy!
