The fourth season of Downton Abbey won't be on the air in the U.S. until next year, but fans of the British drama can get a tantalizing glimpse of what the lies ahead for the Crawley family in a new one-minute trailer.

As Lady Mary continues to mourn the loss of her husband, Matthew, who died in a car accident at the end of the last season, her grandmother, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, tells her: "You have a straightforward choice, you must choose either death or life."

But moving on isn't easy.

What follows is a montage of romantic moments for Downton's other upstairs and downstairs residents, more tears from Lady Mary – who's consoled by steadfast Carson the butler – trouble for former jailbird Bates and Anna and some new love interests for widowed Tom Branson, Lady Rose and maybe even Mary.



The show returns to PBS Jan. 5.
