The long wait it almost over! The premiere of season 2 of Downton Abbey is set for this Sunday, January 8th at 9:00pm (check local listing) on Masterpiece Classic PBS.
To celebrate the return of the award winning series, Masterpiece is hosting a Downton Twitter party during the broadcast of episode one on Sunday from 9:00 – 11:00pm ET & PT. I will be co-moderating with members of the Masterpiece staff as well as Tom + Lorenzo, a fashion blog, Vanity Fair Magazine and special West Coast guest, comedian Patton Oswalt.
Come and tweet along with the thousands of devoted Downtonites and new viewers too. There will be plenty of pithy comments, insightful facts and candid reactions to all the drama and grandeur that we love about Downton Abbey and its upstairs and downstairs inhabitants.
Here are all of the details:
