Right, clear your calendar, put a reminder in your diary and set an alert on your smart phone. Downton Abbey series 5 is back – and it has a confirmed air date.
The hit period drama, starring Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville and Michelle Dockery, is returning to our telly screens for its fifth series on Sunday 21st September.
That’s just 21 days, 12 hours and 25 seconds until the Crawleys return.
And what a return it’s set to be. As well as a confirmed air date, those lovely chaps over at ITV have also treated us to a longer glimpse of the dramas to come in the upcoming season. And with fires, passionate embraces, illicit meetings, scandalous suggestions and bad, bad secrets, it looks like we are in for a treat…
Downton Abbey returns to ITV on Sunday 21 September at 9:00pm

She loves light-hearted dramas and glossy US series - and is more than a little bit obsessed with Downton Abbey. Foodie, sun-seeker and aspiring novelist in her own time. Likes the fact that her name rhymes with telly.
