Ahead of the return of Downton Abbey on September 22, have a peek at the trailer for the new season.

The trailer begins by setting the tone for the fourth season when the Dowager, played by Maggie Smith, gives some advice to her granddaughter Lady Mary, who is grieving following the death of her husband Matthew.

She says: "You have a straightforward choice before you. You must choose either death or life."

To which Mary (played by Michelle Dockery) replies: "And you think that I should choose life?"

The grieving widow has to face life as a single mother and there are plenty of other dramas ahead too as we meet some new as well as familiar faces.

Downton Abbey has been nominated for 12 Emmy awards, including nods for Michelle Dockery, Maggie Smith and Hugh Bonneville. The 65th Emmy Awards will take place on September 22, 2013.
