‘Downton Abbey’ Season 5: Mr. Carson Warns Of Big Changes In New Trailer

Courtesy of PBS

The times, they are a changin’ at Downton Abbey! In an ominous, just-released trailer, the estate’s infamously old-fashioned butler, Mr. Carson, promises that Season 5 of the acclaimed Masterpiece series will be anything but ordinary.

On the past four seasons of Downton Abbey, the members of the aristocratic Crawley family have watched the world they know slip slowly away. Some have embraced the emerging, modern England — Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) married the family chauffeur, Tom Branson (Allen Leech); Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) launched a successful writing career — while others, such as Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) and Mr. Carson (Jim Carter), remain firmly rooted in the past. But based on the brand-new Season 5 teaser video ITV released on June 24, it looks like these old-order gentleman will finally be forced to face the future!

During the Feb. 23 finale of ‘Downton Abbey,’ Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) left us with a major cliffhanger when she decided to ‘choose to live’ rather than choose between Lord Gillingham and Charles Blake. Here’s why Lord Gillingham is the obvious choice.

Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) has never been particularly great in the timely decision-making department, and she continued that streak during Downton Abbey‘s Feb. 23 Season 4 finale by refusing to choose between Lord Anthony Gillingham (Tom Cullen) and Charles Blake (Julian Ovenden).

Next week’s ‘Downton Abbey’ begins Anna’s season-long journey of tragedy and triumph.

Anna Bates (Joanne Froggatt) made it through the fourth season premiere of Downton Abbey relatively unscathed — save for a few catty remarks from everyone’s least favorite human, Edna Braithwaite — but when PBS airs the next episode Jan. 12, fans should prepare themselves for a major shakeup at the abbey.

‘Downton’ may be standing tall in its fourth season, but its residents are in shambles. Matthew’s death was just the start of their problems!
