For us in America, we have to wait until next year to get our fix of Downton Abbey’s fourth season, but for those in the U.K., the series will premiere in just a few short weeks. As if that didn’t make them lucky enough, they also have received the first look at the new series in a brand new trailer.
The new trailer begins with the Dowager Countess explaining to Lady Mary that she must choose between death or life. Considering that almost anyone Mary starts a relationship with dies, it would make sense that she would choose the former, however it seems she takes the Dowager’s advice and chooses life.
The rest of the trailer is a dialogue-free flurry of hints of what’s to come. New characters! Love! Pain! Fancy clothes! Tea drinking! Oddly, the whole think is fittingly scored by The Joy Formidable’s “Wolf’s Law.” It’s hard to imagine the Grantham family, who can’t even stand jazz, to approve the scoring choice.
