'Downton Abbey' Season 4 Trailer: 'Downton' Has Come To Life Again (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Hold on to your hats, ladies and gentleman, because the Season 4 trailer of "Downton Abbey" has arrived. And it's great.

The minute-long preview opens with the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) telling Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) that she "must choose either death or life," and quickly transitions to clips of Anna and Bates staring adoringly at each other, and then pans to what may be a bit of drama. Why do Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) and Cousin Rose (Lily James) seem to be having such a grand time together, exactly?!

There's no question that too much tragedy came to "Downton" in Season 3. But from the looks of the trailer, our favorite high society folks and lovable downstairs characters have come to life again.

"Downton Abbey" Season 4 premieres Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014 on PBS.
