Ready your formal wear and prepare your manners accordingly: the Downton Abbey Season 5 trailer is here.  Fresh off the unveiling of some new images from the upcoming season of the ensemble drama, ITV has released the first footage from the batch of new episodes.  As you’ll see in the trailer, the theme of Season 5 appears to be change in its many forms.  Times are changing, relationships are changing, and by golly Carson is not having any of it.  I enjoy Downton Abbey quite a bit.  Sure it’s essentially a big, sweeping soap opera in a serious drama’s clothing, but it’s fun and engaging and wholly engrossing; the world building of the show is tremendous.  As such, I’m looking forward to seeing what twists and turns are in store for Season 5.

Watch the first Downton Abbey Season 5 trailer after the jump.  The series returns to ITV in the UK on September 21st and will premiere on PBS here in the States on January 4, 2015.

Here’s a synopsis for Downton Abbey Season 5:

Downton Abbey returns to ITV Sunday 21st September at 9pm for a brand new series featuring a host of familiar faces as well as introducing guest stars Richard E Grant and Anna Chancellor. Dame Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt, Elizabeth McGovern, Rob James-Collier, Brendan Coyle, Laura Carmichael, Allen Leech, Lily James, Sophie Mcshera and Tom Cullen will all return in series 5.
