Yes, it seems as if we've been waiting forever for the return of "Downton Abbey." Well, it's almost here.
The "Masterpiece" hit returns at 8 p.m. Jan. 6 on PBS (WTTW in Chicago), right after a the 7 p.m. premiere of a new special called "Secrets of Highclere Castle," which takes a look at the 1,300-year history of the country estate that becomes "Downton Abbey" in the series.
But until Jan. 6, watch this 5-minute recap of the first two seasons to get your fix of the Dowager Countess and everyone else above and below stairs in "Downton Abbey."
