Executive Producer Reveals about Season 3 of Downton Abbey
Monday, April 9, 2012
Downton Abbey won’t be returning for its third season until next year for U.S. television audiences. However, executive producer Rebecca Eaton has offered inkling about the big plot points for the British series. She revealed about the possible death of a major character of Downton Abbey.
“Somebody will be born, and somebody will die, somebody pretty key in the cast, unfortunately not going to make it. It’s the 1920s now,” Eaton said during an interview.
Viewers of Julian Fellowes Downton Abbey won’t be surprised by a big death.
During the first season, Kemal Pamuk created ripples with his death at Downton Abbey and in the last season, former footman William passed away after being injured in the war.
The new season won’t be just about a death. Viewers can also expect a wedding in the next season of Downton Abbey. “Matthew and Mary do get married,” Eaton revealed.
The drama will be significantly improved with the arrival of Shirley MacLaine as Cora’s mother. “There are some wonderful scenes between Maggie and Shirley MacLaine,” said Eaton, “Shirley MacLaine being as ditsy as ever.”
She continued: “And Maggie barely restraining her sneer in having to deal with this American. Maggie Smith is a handful, it’s true. She’s very difficult. She knows her worth and she’s tricky on the set, but she delivers when the time comes.”
Downton Abbey returns for season 3 in the U.S. in January 2013 on PBS.
