Downton Abbey Season 3
Sundays at 9pm starting Jan 6 on CET
Wednesdays at 8pm starting Jan 9 on CET Arts
The Great War is over and a long-awaited engagement is on, but all is not tranquil at Downton Abbey as wrenching social changes, romantic intrigues, and personal crises grip the majestic English country estate for a third thrilling season. With the return of its all-star cast plus guest star Academy Award-winner Shirley MacLaine, Downton Abbey Season 3 airs over seven Sundays beginning January 6th.
In this season Downton's impeccable butler, Carson, breaks in a new footman, who happens to be the nephew of the scheming lady's maid O'Brien. Following Matthew and Mary's engagement, Robert sticks to his duty to maintain Downton more firmly than ever - even as other great houses are crippled psychologically and financially in the wake of World War I. In this changing landscape nothing is assured, and could it be that even the war-weary Crawleys must fight a new battle to safeguard their beloved Downton?
