‘Downton Abbey’ Season 5 Trailer Released – ARTICLE

The trailer for "Downton Abbey" Season 5 is here and from the looks of it, the PBS Masterpiece series will return with plenty of drama!

The minute-long clip hints at a new love interest for Lady Mary Crawley, romance (and a lip lock) for Tom Branson and a possibly-scandalous bedroom rendezvous for Jimmy Kent.

Adding a different kind of heat, the trailer teases a glimpse of a dramatic house fire as well.

The Dowager Countess is up to her usual tricks (suggesting servants are humans, but preferably "only on their days off"), while Lord Grantham dramatically proclaims that his grandchild may be "stolen from us forever."

Technology is moving ahead and the staff is trying to adjust, as Mrs. Hughes explains to Carson in the clip.

"That is exactly what I'm afraid of," replies Carson.
