Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey, Season 2

Rejoin the denizens of Downton Abbey as their glittering culture is thrown into the tumult of World War I. Sunday at 8 p.m. on PBS 6.

Multiple Emmy winner (including Outstanding Miniseries!) "Downton Abbey" resumes the story of aristocrats and servants of Downton Abbey during the tumultuous World War I era.

Two years into World War I, Downton Abbey is in turmoil, as Matthew and other young men go to war — or avoid it. The women also pitch in, and many couples see their romantic dreams dashed.

Downton Abbey's Granthams and their family of servants have already weathered scoundrels, scandals, and a momentous succession crisis. But by November, 1916, the Great War has rendered everything — and everyone — changed. Even Downton Abbey itself, like its residents, has risen to the call of duty and transformed.
