Late this week, ITV in the UK released the Downton Abbey series finale trailer, which will air on the upcoming Christmas episode on December 25th.
Fans in the United States will have to wait for the series to begin on January 3rd on PBS Masterpiece. However, in this final episode trailer, while it doesn’t contain any heavy spoilers for what is to come when we watch it stateside, we do see that one downstairs member bids goodbye, and one of Lady Mary’s (Michelle Dockery) suitors is still hanging around.
The promo absolutely will tug at the heart, make you want a shed a tear, and whet your appetite, while Britain prepares to say its farewell to the beloved series in its sixth and final season over the holiday.
Watch after the jump as the Crawley’s ring in the new year, contemplate even more how the times are changing before them, and how some characters seem to be preparing to make some life-changing decisions that will affect their loved ones and family. Then, let us know if you were begining to feel like you are going to be put through an emotional-ringer come time it airs in the U.S.?
