Consider this a tease, America.

The final season of “Downton Abbey” starts in the United Kingdom on September 20 and thanks to the wonders of the World Wide Web, fans all over the world get to check out the trailer.

The trailer is downright emotional, with the sad music and Robert Crawley (played by actor Hugh Bonneville) telling Mr. Carson (Jim Carter), “If I could stop history in its tracks, maybe I would. But I can’t, Carson, for neither you nor I can hold back time.”

The period drama, which premiered in 2010, follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants on the Downton Abbey estate. The show’s first season depicted life in pre-World War I England, while the fifth season spanned the late ’20s. The action in the new season will take place six months after the last one ended.

Producers had earlier announced that this sixth season would be a final one for the wildly popular series.

“Downton Abbey” airs on PBS in the United States and the new season is scheduled to start on January 3, 2016.
