Watch the Titillating Trailer for Season 5 of Downton Abbey

ITV ran the trailer for season five of Downton Abbey before the premiere of X-Factor (which brought back Simon Cowell), and it's a much longer glimpse than the teaser we got a couple of months back. The trailer confirms a lot of what we already knew, like the entrance of guest stars Richard Grant and Anna Chancellor, but also piques our curiosity about a whole lot else. We'll let the trailer speak for itself, but we will tell you that there is much more Dame Maggie Smith this go-around. For Brits, the series returns Sunday, September 21, whereas us Americans will have to either patiently wait until its PBS premiere January 4, 2015, or get our search engines ready to go.
