Previews and Reviews - It's a Wonderful Downton Abbey Life

Will Carson and Mrs. Hughes make it down the aisle? Will Branson find happiness in America? Will Mary snap up the affections of the "snappy chariot" driver? Will Anna reveal her secret heartache? How will the Crawley household withstand the threat of momentous social change?

Downton Abbey returns for an epic sixth and final season of intimately interlaced stories centered on an English country estate - a deliciously entertaining saga that has made it the highest-rated drama in PBS history. Lavish costumes, posh settings, scandals and secrets, and rich enduring dialogue laced with stinging sarcasm and sniping wit from characters we've come to love, culminate in 9 episodes.

Join us for the final season of Downton Abbey on Masterpiece, Fridays at 9 on Rhode Island PBS, beginning January 8. Visit PBS for videos, behind the scenes photos, and other insights and teases.

In the meantime, binge with us on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day starting at 11 a.m. both days and fully relive the first three seasons of Downton Abbey. From the sinking of the Titanic to a fateful car ride, it's an epic turbulent journey that changes lives in the Crawley household.

And of course, we encore Season 5 of Downton Abbey on Masterpiece starting December 6 at 1:30 p.m., leading right up to the premiere of Season 6 on January 8.
