Downton Abbey sequel movie A New Era is coming out at the end of the month, and to tide fans over, there’s a four part behind-the-scenes series launching online tomorrow (April 19).
Ahead of that, a short teaser has been released on YouTube to give us a glimpse of what we can expect from the short series: Clara Amfo going around the set and talking to the cast about the making of the newest movie. From the brief clips we get here, it seems like everyone really enjoyed going to France.
The plot of A New Age sees a Hollywood studio take over Downton to film a new movie, while the main characters cross the Channel to France to visit the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith)’s newly inherited villa, where there is a mystery that needs solving.

Creator Julian Fellowes has described it is a “feel-good” sequel, while star Michelle Dockery has said that “it’s a really fun film”. However, Lesley Nicol has stated that the film is going to be an emotional affair as well.
“It’s absolutely jam-packed full of stuff,” she previously said. “There’s so much going on. I mean, it’s funny. I laughed out loud a lot. There’s stuff that made me cry because there’s some romance and stuff you don’t expect.
“I suppose that’s what I also love about it. I mean, I know what happens, but there’ll be stuff that the audience couldn’t possibly foresee.”
The film’s mammoth cast list includes returning faces Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt, Harry Hadden-Paton, Robert James-Collier, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera , Tuppence Middleton, the aforementioned Lesley Nicol, Maggie Smith, Imelda Staunton and Penelope Wilton, while the new cast members are: Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye, Dominic West and Jonathan Zaccaï.
