Final season of ‘Downton Abbey’ premieres tonight

WASHINGTON — The final and sixth season of the hit British drama “Downton Abbey” premieres Sunday night on PBS.

In a promo clip of the season, Hugh Bonneville, who plays Robert Crawley in the series, tells Downton Abbey’s butler Mr. Carson, “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.”

Watch the promo:

PBS will air a marathon of the season a week before the finale and a behind-the-scenes special detailing how the show was made.

The series finale is set for the first week of March, the network announced in October.
