The Downton Abbey series five trailer has dropped and has instantly made us excited for Autumn.

The minute-long trailer introduces several new characters, including Anna Chancellor as Lady Anstruther and Richard E Grant as art historian Simon Bricker.

As well as the newbies, all the old familiar faces will return, so look forward to seeing Dame Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt, Elizabeth McGovern, Rob James-Collier, Brendan Coyle, Laura Carmichael, Allen Leech, Lily James, Sophie McShera and Tom Cullen on your screens again.

The trailer hints at a few different storylines with the most dramatic being a fire at Downton Abbey.

Series five is set in 1924 and looks to be getting a bit political as Britain’s first Labour party government takes power and proceeds to shake things up for the Crawleys.

Downton Abbey returns to ITV on Sunday September 21 at 9pm. Watch the trailer below and start to get excited for cosy autumn nights watching Downton. The end of summer isn’t all bad, eh?
