8 New Photos From "Downton Abbey" Season 5

The Crawleys and their servants are back for a new season of domestic drama and international intrigue this autumn on ITV and in Jan. on PBS’s Masterpiece. Plus, George and Sybbie have grown up!

1. The latest season of Downton Abbey is nearly upon us, which means a new signature image featuring the cast… which this time includes wee George and Sybbie up front with Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) and Tom Branson (Allen Leech).

2. Lady Mary poses on a hunt with Tom Branson and possible paramour, Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen). Does this point towards who Mary might have chosen as a potential future spouse? Hmmm.

3. It’s almost impossible for Thomas (Robert James-Collier) not to have a sly, mischievous smirk on his face.

4. Of all the possible romantic entanglements on the show, I’m most intrigued by that between old friends Mr. Carson (Jim Carter) and Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan), who took one another’s hand at the end of Season 4.

5. There’s an air of tension here in this photo of Mr. Bates (Brendan Coyle) and Anna Bates (Joanne Froggatt). Will their secrets from last year continue to haunt them in Season 5?
