“Downton Abbey: Season 6” Preview Screening Events:
What can you expect as we begin “Season 6”? As we open in 1925, a series of crises reflecting the momentous changes that are transforming society. Women's rights have given Lady Mary and Lady Edith new positions of responsibility: Mary runs the estate, and Edith manages the magazine she inherited from Michael Gregson. Meanwhile, Tom Branson has left for Boston, and newlyweds Lady Rose and Atticus Aldridge are trying their luck in Jazz Age New York. Anna Bates faces a murder charge, though many still suspect her husband. And for the rest of the servants, big doubts hang over their jobs. Will great houses and the fortunes that support them soon be gone?
The romance and wry humor you’ve come to love return as beloved cast members begin a bittersweet and exciting season as part of “Masterpiece Theater” on Sunday, Jan. 3, at 8 p.m. on AETN!
