Downton Abbey returns from this Sunday night. Seven is playing the season much earlier than 2012 when it ran post-Easter.
Season Three begins at 8:30pm Sunday February 10th with a 90 minute premiere. It includes the debut of Shirley Maclaine as Cora’s mother.
This probably explains why ABC1 changed some of its programming so that Upstairs Downstairs wrapped last night.
Castle also returns at 10pm Sunday, picking up from Season 5 Episode 6, “The Final Frontier.”
