-

We have several updates today for Downton Abbey fans! First up, an hourlong Downton Abbey NBC special, titled Return to Downton Abbey: A Grand Event, is set to air Thursday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m.

The special will give viewers a chance to celebrate and have an inside look at the upcoming feature film. The film Downton Abbey, which features the returning cast and a story highlighted by a visit from the King and Queen of England, opens in theaters on Sept. 20.

The Downton Abbey NBC special, to be hosted by two-time Emmy Award winner Derek Hough and filmed at the historic Highclere Castle in England, will talk to the cast about what made the series so unique and appealing to millions, as well as how the series easily segues into the feature film.

In addition, celebrities will share their Downton obsession and talk about what made the show so addictive.

In related news, both a featurette on who’s who and a clip have come online and can be watched below.
