Downton Abbey Season 5: First Teaser!

at . Comments

I feel a shaking of the ground I stand on. The nature of life is not permanence, but flux. Things are changing.

So intones Jim Carter as Mr. Carson in the following teaser, which gives fans their first taste of Downton Abbey Season 5.

The promo doesn't feature any upcoming footage, but it does make it clear that little will be the same when this beloved drama returns with new episodes on ITV in Great Britain in September and then in early 2015 for American viewers.

Check out the promo now and then go watch Downton Abbey online if you need to catch up prior to its Season 5 return.

Downton Abbey Quotes

Edith: Now you're happy again, you'll be nicer... for a while.
Mary: If that's what you feel, then why are you here?
Edith: Because, in the end, you're my sister and one day, only we will remember Sybil... or Mama or Papa or Matthew or Michael or Granny or Carson or any of the others who have peopled our youth... until, at last, our shared memories will mean more than our mutual dislike.

Robert: You'll be in a very junior seat.
Violet: Il faut reculer pour mieux sauter. (You have to step back to jump further.)
