Downton Abbey

Get Ready For The Season Three Premiere Of Downton Abbey!


Fans in the U.S. are excited to finally get to see season three of the hit British primetime soap, Downton Abbey, when it premieres this Sunday January 6th on PBS at 9PMEST/8PMCST!

To get you ready, TV Guide has put together a refresher course of where we left off with the Crawleys, Mr. Bates, Lord Grantham, and more of the characters you love from this smash hit from across the pond!

TVG also previews what is to come in season three including: Matthew and Mary’s pre-marital woes, Downton’s move into the roaring twenties, Lord Grantham’s bad investment, Anne Bates investigation to clear Bates’ name,  how Thomas’ terrible jealousy will rears it ugly head, and the one that we are looking forward to most as Oscar winner Shirley MacLaine premieres as Cora’s American mother Martha Levinson on the season premiere.

But while we might cheer for Martha’s appearance, the Dowager Countess (Dame Maggie Smith) is none too pleased. “These two matriarchs… collide together and to see it on screen with two absolute Hollywood legends is fantastic,”  Rob James-Collier, who plays Thomas told “The hairs on the back of your neck stand up, you know?”

So are you ready for “Downton’ season three? Let us know!

Downton has characters you care about. That’s what keeps us watching.


Oh why can’t the English teach the Americans how to do soap!


downton abbey’s season 3 premiere episode was hyped even around Asian countries. but it was quite the epic failure. what the hell was carson’s reaction when mary walked down the steps wearing that underwhelming wedding gown? lady cora’s mother was the typical rude foreigner who acts above tradition and customs. she goes outta her way to mock them to make her western self feel superior and yet she’s the one who looks completely backward and classless. dumb writing and disappointing acting. they can make her wear all kinds of fur but there’s only 1 diva on downton abbey and it’s maggie smith. the battle of the academy award winners was a major letdown. i’m quitting abbey if there’s no improvement by the episode where sybil gives birth. mythical show merlin has a racial minority guinevere. abbey could have used some racial minority actors. the whole basis of open casting is to give racial minority actors more opportunities bec of the lack of roles.
