It’s not a new Downton Abbey season without the entire cast depicted in one group photo, and series 4 is no different.
ITV debuted the Downton Abbey series 4 cast photo on Tuesday afternoon. Like previous series group photos, this one depicts your favorite family members and workers out front of Downton itself. Feast your eyes:
Besides warmer colors compared to previous seasons’ banners, Downton Abbey series 4’s photo adds Alan Leech as Tom Branson to the family side of the line up. Lily James’ Lady Rose character has been added next to Tom, and Shirley MacLaine’s Martha Levinson has been removed.
Despite several new recurring characters, none of them are depicted in this photo. If they survive series 4, perhaps they’ll get a spot on the series 5 poster next year.
Enjoy these three new Downton Abbey series 4 photos as well:
Downton Abbey will reportedly premiere next month on ITV in the United Kingdom, but an official start date hasn’t been shared. Meanwhile, PBS says that it will begin airing the season stateside beginning January 4 and running through mid-February.
With the cast photo now out, hopefully we are getting very close to learning when the show will kick off its fourth outing in the U.K. Even though many in the U.S. like to wait until it airs on PBS, due to spoilers some Americans choose to find other ways to watch it while it airs in the show’s home country.
