When Downton Abbey returns this Sunday, viewers can expect major changes as World War I makes its presence felt throughout the household and the lives and conventions of Downton’s residents are turned upside down.

Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, and Elizabeth McGovern are back with an all-star cast for the second season of Julian Fellowes’ Emmy Award winning drama.

Season two of Downton Abbey airs Sundays January 8 through February 19 at 9 p.m. on THIRTEEN. Full episodes will also be available to watch online the Monday after broadcast, and available through March 6.

Neal Shapiro, President and CEO of WNET, recently sat down with Downton Abbey star Elizabeth McGovern (Lady Cora) to discuss season two, similarities to her character, her career in the theater, and much more:

    Please inform us when the Sunday evening broadcasts of Downton Abbey will be repeated during the week. It is not always possible to be home on Sunday evenings, and we would like to be certain that we know the backup times.

    Please spare me the maroons who are too lazy to search for this info, which is easily found, and instead issue edicts that 13 spoonfeed it to them.

  • Charles Almon

    You are so wrong, Mindy.
    Even folks who are a dark purpley red have rights!

  • Marguerite Smith

    Score one for Mr. Almon. I loved the retort.

  • John D

    I am new to this series and I confess….I’m addicted….Rich people and servants living in a large house??? Who’da thunk it??? Of course, years ago I was the guy who said…”Who wants to see a Broadway Musical about the wife of an Argentine dictator?”!!!

    I just started to watch reruns of last seasons episodes and I am hooked.

  • Jackie Mc

    At the risk of offending those who don’t want me to be spoon fed, Where did you find reruns of last season’s episodes? I’d like to watch them while I’m currently out of work on disability, before watching the new season, have just had this series recommended to me.

  • Maria Brooklyn

    OK…So I got hooked on season 1 Mid Feb via DVD and now I found I missed the chance to see Season 2 online. Help! When and how can my craving to know about these people be addressed?
