Way back, in January 2011, a brand-new series premiered on Masterpiece Classic on Wisconsin Public Television. It’s been a long time since viewers were first introduced to Downton Abbey and its fascinating cast of characters.
In four seasons, we’ve experienced the love story of Mary and Matthew, we’ve enjoyed the Dowager Countesses’s biting charm, endured the good and the bad with Anna and Bates, and thrilled to shocking losses and new beginnings. On January 4, 2015 the story will take new turn when a fifth season begins on WPT. But before then, enjoy an encore of the first four seasons, airing weekends on WPT.
From now until the Season 5 premiere on Sunday, Jan. 4, weekends are reserved for Downton Abbey. Watch every episode or revisit your favorite season. Season 1 begins Saturday, Oct. 11 and Season 2 begins Sunday, Nov. 2. After a brief hiatus for our winter membership drive, Season 3: Episodes 1-5 air Sunday, Dec. 21, with Episodes 6 and 7 airing the following Sunday. And on New Year’s Day, we’ll show the entire run of Season 4.
And if you don’t ration your excitement like the Dowager Countess does, you can always look to Amazon Prime and iTunes for on-demand viewing of Season 1-4.
Here’s a look at what’s to come on Season 5, which picks up in 1924. The United Kingdom has its first Labor Party prime minister, radio is the latest miracle and Downton’s traditional ways are besieged on all fronts.
