The British sensation will air new episodes on that network in the fall of 2014 and in early 2015 on PBS in the United States.

"Like millions of other Downton fans, I can’t wait to see what’s next for the Crawley family,"” said Paula Kerger, President and CEO of PBS. “"PBS is proud to be the home of this extraordinarily entertaining series, and, along with our stations, we look forward to sharing Season 5 with U.S. audiences."

Downton Abbey Season 4, meanwhile, kicks off on American airwaves on January 5 at 9/8c.
