It’s not poppycock: “Downton Abbey: A New Era” is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. And the second film in the Downton Abbey universe is anything but rubbish. We promise, guv’nor.

“Downton Abbey: A New Era” is now officially streaming on Amazon Prime Video, and has since become the #10 film on the platform.

Originally released in the US in May 2022, the sequel, which follows fan-favorite characters as Downton is swiftly brought into the 20th century with the arrival of a film crew, has officially hit streaming.

Settle into the settee, grab a pack of crisps, and read on. Below, we outline more details about the film, the cast, and how to watch it.

What is “Downton Abbey: A New Era” about?

When we last left the Downton cast, they’d thwarted an assassination attempt against royal visitors to the Crawley manor in Yorkshire in 2019’s “Downton Abbey: the Motion Picture.”

“Downton Abbey: A New Era,” also written by series creator and head writer Julian Fellows, picks up in 1928, where family secrets coming to light is just scene-setting for what is yet to come.

Soon, a film crew descends on Downton — they want to use the stately manor to shoot their silent film, “The Gambler.” Tensions rise, and fights ensue, as certain family members are unwilling to adapt to Downton’s new guests.
