Happy Downton Abbey 2 Day, U.S.

Best news of all on Downton Abbey 2 Day in the U.S.!!!

As previously announced, Downton Abbey has been commissioned by ITV for another series of programs. Remember the angst that you felt at the end of series 1 not knowing if there was to be a series 2 or not? Not this time. You can go in to tonight’s premiere ep with the knowledge that there will be a series 3. The next installments will begin filming next month and will consist of 10 episodes. Make plans now for, I’m guessing, a Fall 2012 broadcast in the UK and a January 2013 broadcast in the U.S. on PBS.

Have you been ‘in pieces’ waiting for Downton Abbey 2 premiere?

Rest assured. You are not alone. One of the most-watched Masterpiece programs in decades returns to PBS tonight with the premiere episode of series 2. Here’s a fun video to help you put all the final pieces in place and get you through the next several hours before it begins.
