‘Downton Abbey’ season 4 ready to begin (at least production-wise)

Downton Abbey CastIf you are a diehard fan of “Downton Abbey,” you have surely been waiting for this for quite a long time; and luckily, the moment is just about here. “Downton Abbey” had its first read-through earlier this week for season 4, and as we progress forward into the days and weeks ahead, filming for the new episodes will officially be underway.

So how much are we going to find out about this process while it is happening? The answer here is simple: very little. While Americans have to suffer through spoilers from anywhere and everywhere after the show airs earlier in the United Kingdom, Julian Fellowes and the crew have done a stellar job over the years at keeping most details concerning the plot of this show a secret … especially when it comes to stunners such as Sybil’s death.

Considering how long the wait is, this really is a situation where the less we know about specific events that transpire, the better off we know about this series is the better off we’ll be. With that in mind, don’t expect this place to become a haven for saying that “X happened” or “Y died.” Instead, we will share some casting news as it comes out, along with what some of the actors themselves are saying about the filming process. Production will push ahead now for several months, and the new season will begin as always on ITV in September. (It’s still to be seen as to whether or not PBS will push up the airdate in America.)
