4th season of ‘Downton’ set to air in January
NEW YORK (AP) — PBS says the fourth season of “Downton Abbey” will begin in January and run for eight weeks.
The series is the highest-rated drama in public TV’s history.
Shirley MacLaine will return for the fourth season, joined by newcomers including opera star Kiri Te Kanawa. They’ll have to fill the void left by leading man Dan Stevens’ departure: His character, Matthew, died in a car crash in last February’s third-season finale.
The new season will air from Jan. 5 to Feb. 23.
