“Downton Abbey” fans who have been resisting watching illicit streams of Season 3’s U.K. broadcasts will get a taste of the new season on Thanksgiving weekend.
PBS has scheduled a 90-minute special called “Downton Abbey Revisited” for Sunday, Nov. 25 (check your local listings). The show will recap the first two seasons of the hit drama and offer a tease of Season 3, which debuts in the United States on Jan. 6.
“Revisited,” hosted by avowed “Downton” fan Angela Lansbury, will also include interviews with creators Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame and members of the cast, including Hugh Bonneville, Maggie Smith, Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery and Dan Stevens.
Here’s a preview of the special.
