Watch an Awesome New Trailer for Downton Abbey Season 2 (VIDEO)

Downton Abbey returns to PBS on January 8, but the second season of the Emmy-winning British period drama has already aired in the U.K. The buzz has not been entirely great—from what I’ve been reading online, the show moves too far into soapy territory with a number of jaw-dropping developments and some too-heavy-handed social commentary thrown in as afterthought. But whatever, we won’t let that spoil our fun. In this kind-of-awesome trailer (which, be warned, is said to reveal several pivotal plot points) we catch up with the Crawleys as The Great War rages around them. Who will live? Who will die? Who will eat soup with the wrong spoon? And who will win the flower show? Oh, who are we kidding—Violet is totally going to fix it this year.

And the song playing in the trailer is jónsi’s “Tornado.” I Shazam'd it so you don’t have to.

Hmm, that doesn't reel me in. Season 1 was good but that trailer isn't that great. Cinematography is beautiful though.

I thought series 2 was about the same as series 1, I enjoyed both. Regards the headline though: it seems odd to use the word "awesome". It should have been "splendid", or "marvellous" surely?

Ok....I am American and have already seen all of season 2. Rest assured, devoted viewers. Any naysayers of the show's second outing are surely mistaken because both I and my viewing companion could not have been more pleased with the direction the show took. The stakes were a plenty, the acting was elite, the writing superb, music flawless, and the facial expressions of Carson, Lady Grantham, and the Dowager Countess could not be more picture perfect. Downton Abbey is the best show ever concocted by man.
