Get excited!! — but of course, keep your composure, lest the Dowager Countess raises an eyebrow in protest — for the season (series if you’re appropriately British) three trailer for Downton Abbey has arrived.
Shirls “Give my daughter the shot!” MacLaine is coming aboard to stir the pot as Countess Cora’s mother, which we can only hope involves an arm-wrestling match with Dame Maggie Smith over HBIC-status of Downton. The Crawleys are apparently broke. Matthew and Lady Mary have already hit the rocks on the shores of love. And Anna is determined to get her poor Mr. Bates out of jail.
With the Roaring 20s upon them, the third season should be even more swinging than the previous two, especially without that unsightly war to worry about. We hope Lady Sybill continues to shock with bobbed hair and flapper dresses, and of course the occasional pant.
