Most of the key cast members are returning, with Hugh Bonneville and Joanne Froggatt (who play Earl Robert Crawley and Lady Mary's maid Anna respectively). Unfortunately, Hollywood sweat-heart and Mamma Mia! actor Lily James has announced that she won't be returning as Lady Rose, but oh well.
A trailer has just been released, teasing a 2019 release. No hint of the plot has been given away but it should follow the events of season six’s finale which included Lady Mary’s pregnancy, Lady Edith’s marriage and Anna giving birth to a healthy baby boy – a well deserved happy for poor Anna who was one half of the show's most unfortunate couple.
Time for a glass of champagne to celebrate. Carson?
Watch the teaser trailer below.
