ITV, the U.K. company responsible for “Downton Abbey,” has released a wonderful new trailer for Season 3, which premieres across the pond on Sept. 16. Lucky Brits.

In the trailer, everyone seems to be crying. Or kissing. Or saying something that sounds so profound. Maggie Smith has some great lines, though not her usual barb-like bon mots. Here are a few highlights:

“Nothing succeeds like excess.” — Lady Violet.

“I’ll never be happy with anyone else as long as you walk the earth.” — Matthew Crawley.

“She finds our underbelly every time.” — Lady Violet

“You have given me back my life.” — Sir Anthony Strallin.

This trailer has us the most excited yet out of all the trailers and pictures released so far. “Downton” looks to have moved away from the grander-scale plotlines of Season 2 and back to the smaller, more intimate plotlines of Season 1, which is wonderful to see.
